The Beach Property Owners Association is taking the next step toward a long-term plan for the beachfront, after meeting March 24 with city leaders, city employees and residents.
At its April 1 board meeting, the association intended to set a date to present its report and renderings to the City Commission.
The association wants to create a master plan for the beachfront to tackle residents’ concerns in the future. Planning began in November, with a successful, standing-room-only charrette where people said they were concerned about, among other things, parking, people on the beach after dark, and smoking.
Since then, organizers have compiled a report and created artist renderings to show the City Commission what they envision as the beachfront in Delray Beach.
No changes are expected in the near future, except the possibility of new garbage cans. But the association said it is important to have a guide for the future.
“Everyone is behind us,” said Mary Renaud, president of the BPOA.
