    The Boynton Beach Community Redevelopment Agency should pay to fix the north road in the Boynton Harbor Marina and rebuild the 400-foot sea wall while creating a park near it because the two projects are related, its executive director said at the agency’s budget workshop in early August.
    To make her point, Vivian Brooks showed CRA board members pictures of the road buckling. “The sea wall deterioration is causing the road to sink,” she explained. “It’s a health and safety issue.”
    She wanted to add $740,122 for the road and sea wall repair while the marina open space park is created. The $834,030 budgeted for the park will roll over into the next financial year.
    “This is ongoing maintenance that comes with owning a marina,” she told the board members. The sea wall was built in 2001-2002, according to the engineering evaluation.
    She plans to put the project out for bid early next year and have the work done in the summer. Marina tenants, including boat owners and the Two Georges restaurant, have already lived through construction disrupting their business at the marina. Brooks didn’t want to disrupt activity during the height of the season.
    The board members agreed.
    The CRA board will meet Sept. 8 to review and approve the budget.
