The Bimini Basin Vison Continues To Move Forward!
Charrette brought 42 stakeholders and the public together to create a vison.
City Council and staff continue to move forward with a planning process for the Bimini Basin in the south Cape. The City is working with the University of South Florida’s School of Architecture and Community Design, which has been retained by the City to conduct the planning and visioning process on the Bimini Basin.
On January 29, the USF team facilitated a Visioning Charrette at the Cape Coral Volunteer Fireman’s Hall. A group of 42 stakeholders were selected to participate in the visioning charrette.
After a brief introduction, the group embarked on a four-hour charrette process. At the end of the planning process, the charrette groups presented their recommendations to the other participants as well as members of the public.
A vote was held to determine which recommendation would be moved forward. USF will return on March 17 to present and review the initial design plan for the idea that received the most support from the stakeholders and the public. The presentation will be from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. The USF team will incorporate the additional feedback received during this process review and return for a final presentation scheduled for April 16 from 5:30p.m. – 7:30p.m.
The public is invited to attend these follow up presentations and hear the potential plans for creating a destination at the Bimini Basin. Both presentations will be held at the Fireman’s Hall at 1313 SE 47th Terrace.
