No parking lot project this year
Mar. 22, 2012
The CRA Board delayed the planned improvements to the Main Beach Parking Lot until the design for the A1A widening is completed. At the Mar. 20 meeting, CRA director Keven Klopp noted public concern about certain aspects of the project, including the "amphitheater" feature.
The overall concept, designed by Chen Moore & Associates mostly to improve appearance of the complex of parking lots fronting the beach, is not expected to encounter public opposition. But as noted by Mr. Klopp there are residents who question the amphitheater-like structure planned for the east end of the parking lot and the proposal to close S.E. 1st St. to accommodate more parking spaces. 1st St. is the ingress and egress route for fire and rescue equipment.
As it stands now, the earliest the project could begin would be in FY 2013.
