February - March Stakeholder Meetings
On February 16, the Project Team met with community stakeholders at the Frankie Shannon Rolle Neighborhood Center in the Village West area of Coconut Grove. The communities' desires for the waterfront ranged from the incorporation of the Commodore Trail to water taxi service and from an amphitheater in Peacock Park to a boardwalk connecting to the Spoil Islands.
The Team also met with hoteliers from the local hotels on the waterfront and discussed their concerns and desires for the future of the waterfront. Renovating the Expo Center into a smaller boutique-style conference center would boost the hotels' year-round occupancy.
The Project Team met with stakeholders from the North and West Grove to gather valuable information about the site on March 21st and March 27, 2006. Stakeholders expressed both their current concerns with the waterfront area and their desires for the future of the waterfront.
