Waterfront Master Plan

City Council Workshop Meeting Presentation - February 12, 2018

EDSA, the City’s consultant working on the waterfront master plan, gave a presentation at the City Council Workshop on February 12, 2018. The presentation focused on five parks with budget estimates and conceptual ideas, and recommended project prioritization to the City Council. (Lake Wyman/Rutherford Park & Hillsboro El Rio Park were not included, as they are currently in the design process.)

  • Wildflower Park
  • South Beach Park
  • Spanish River Park
  • Palmetto Dune Park
  • Red Reef Park

Discussion about the Wildflower Park and its connectivity to Silver Palm Park will be revisited and finalized after a public outreach meeting on February 26, 2018, about the proposed new boat ramps and features at the James A. Rutherford/Lake Wyman Park. The hope is to solicit residential input about the need and location for boat ramps, so that conceptual designs can be completed for Silver Palm Park that integrate with the Wildflower site.
