Barton Blvd. serves as one of the most important connector roadways in
the City, as it links the residential areas surrounding Fiske Blvd. and
the residential communities along the riverfront to the diverse
commercial core of Barton Blvd.
In 2008, this strategically located thoroughfare saw substantial
enhancements, including the installation of decorative lighting,
extensive landscaping, and sidewalk improvements. The wide-scale project
garnered the 2009 Florida Redevelopment Association’s Best Capital
Project / Beautification Award.
Because Rockledge City Hall is
located at the intersection of Barton Blvd. and Huntington Ln., this
strategic locale in the Barton Boulevard Sub-District serves as a focal
point for events and community gatherings. These events have a dual
purpose in that they engage the community, but they also bring exposure
and publicity to the businesses along this corridor.
