Downtown Waterfront Master Plan – Project Update January 2015
To date, the City’s Downtown Waterfront Master Plan (DWMP) team has conducted more than 45 meetings and events with about 600 participants. In Phase I, the DWMP team listened to community input, held stakeholder meetings with sustainability and climate change experts, a social equity and diversity group, the business community, and port, marina, and airport leaders, and others.
In Phase II, five themes were presented and validated by the community. Under those themes, many starter ideas for the downtown waterfront were presented. Some ideas were to address baseline needs, such as parkland and vista preservation, and others were more transformative, such as creating a Bayboro Collaboration Zone including the Port, Airport, USFSP, and other institutions.
The City’s Downtown Waterfront Master Plan (DWMP) project is now entering Phase III of four Phases.
A 4-day workshop for testing and refining ideas for the DWMP will be held January 26 – 29. The DWMP team needs your continued feedback and collaboration. Please plan to attend all three public events:
• Monday, January 26 at 6:30 pm
The DWMP team will give a presentation and work with participants on refining master plan elements;
• Wednesday, January 28 from 4-7 pm
An open house will be held where the public may view work in progress and talk to the team in an informal setting; and
• Thursday, January 29 at 6:30 pm
Presentation of programmatic design and implementation approaches that will help form the draft master plan document (Phase IV).
All events are being held at the USFSP Harbor Hall (former Dali Museum) 1000 3rd Street South.
