Update on the Grove waterfront
Regatta Park mitigation and construction update:
CIP (Capital Improvements Program) Assistant Director Jeovanny Rodriguez stated that DERM has required more testing. the City expects about 300 cubic yards of contaminated soil from areas that used to service airplanes and an old service/maintenance area for the City GSA. Since there was only one park construction bid from the original RFP that was not able to be negotiated, new bids went out, the lowest bidder is in the process of being selected, and a contract will be executed as procurement proceeds. This is still under the cone of silence.
Dinner Key Dockmaster building update:
CIP Assistant Director Jeovanny Rodriguez stated that the project is almost completed. He expects a CO to be issued by mid March. The committee will try to have a future meeting at the new building.
Preliminary planning of the Regatta Park ramp, dockage, and launch arm:
CIP Senior Project Manager Maria Pineda, TY Lin marine engineering firm representative, and Robert Weinreib of the Implementaion Committee were given a tour of the US Sailing Center site, the Coconut Grove Sailing Club site, and the Marine Stadium site by Gary Bode of US Sailing during the race events taking place at all three sites. The permitting is expected to be the most complex part of the project and most time consuming. A preliminary design will be discussed at next month’s meeting. Because of the time frame for the Miami International Boat Show using the Marine Stadium site next year, Regatta Park might have to take up some of the Marine Stadium race boats.
Permanent Channel Markers for Grove Harbour Dock expansion:
the Waterfront Advisory Board and the Coconut Grove Implementation Committee have tried to get a timeline of when the required channel markers will be in place. We will continue to try to move the permanent channel markers installation forward.
