BEACH BEAUTIFICATION LIAISON COMMITTEE (BBLC)

Provided By Peter Birckhead

 

The following is a monthly update on the activities of the Beach Beautification Liaison Committee and beach area improvements.

 

I FISHING PIER, BEACH AND BEACH AREA IMPROVEMENTS

A. Renovation of Navarre Park –

The BOCC approved the cost proposal (contract) from Genesis for design and permitting.  Genesis began design work this spring which should take approximately 12 months.  However, unforeseen permitting delays may extend this timeline. Construction will follow sometime after design approval.

B. New Restroom on Fishing Pier -

The restroom on the pier is the responsibility of the pier lessee (Growing Santa Rosa Enterprises).  Currently pier management will focus on the restaurant and infrastructure improvements on the pier and once completed they will address the restroom.

C. Fishing Pier Decking Material - $300,000 has been set aside in the FY 2018 budget for the replacement of fishing pier decking material. As I am sure many of you have noticed the fishing pier wooden planks you walk on are beginning to show significant wear. This project was approved but information is available on a start date.

UPDATE - The engineering and legal department of SRC are working on a master services agreement with all firms.

D.   Multi-Use Path Along Gulf Blvd. Improvements –

The high spots or bumps along walking/bike trail have been heated and scraped to reduce trip hazards. Thanks to Stephen Furman, Director of Public Works for SRC, for getting this project completed on a timely bases.

Since the county is unwilling to entertain any options to irrigate along Gulf Blvd at this time I am reaching out to several landscaping companies to secure some idea of cost to water and landscape the area between the walking/bike path and Gulf Blvd. from the Tom Thumb to the east and the national sea shore to the west. Stayed Tuned!

E. Navarre Beach Sports and Recreation –

The County issued an itinerant vendor permit for the property adjacent west of Springhill Suites.  The allowance is for 15 volleyball courts to be constructed on a temporary bases for volleyball tournaments to be held.  This project is in cooperation with Springhill Suites that owns the property.

II LOCAL ADOPT A SPOT PROGRAM ANNOUCED FOR NAVARRE BEACH

Lynn Steinhilber, Lisa Cichy and I continue to monitor the island looking for trash, debris and anything that looks out of place.

Should you come across any of this while you are out and about on the island please let me know so it can be dealt with right away.
