Vero Beach’s down town has a pair of one-way streets going through it locally referred to as the twin pairs, and their design is somewhat controversial, as the speed limit is higher, and they have more lanes than some residents feel are necessary. This is a state road, an evacuation route from the beach, and any changes need to be agreed by all. The alternate design idea is to have fewer lanes, more parking, and lower speed limits. The different design opinions often originate from supporters of the down town who want to see residents utilize our locally owned restaurants and businesses, rather than speed through our historic downtown toward the chain stores in the malls. Further, the changes would generally enhance the pedestrian nature of the district. They have a point.
