BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA — With input from a diverse group of representatives from the recreational boating community, the preliminary design process continues for the new, larger complex closer to the harbor’s entrance at Port Canaveral.
Construction is slated to begin this month on the facility with completion this summer. As part of the preliminary design process, additional public comments will be sought until January 21 online at DearPortCanaveral.com and Facebook.com/PortCanaveral.
The public also will be able to view the preliminary designs in the lobby of the Maritime Center during business hours and offer input in writing for staff review.
CURRENT BOAT RAMP WILL REMAIN OPEN UNTIL NEW ONE IS COMPLETED
J.P. Donovan Construction of Rockledge received unanimous Commission approval last month to relocate recreational boat ramps from Freddie Patrick Park in the Cove to an area just west of Jetty Park. The current boat ramp will remain open until the new one is completed.
The relocation is necessary for the construction of a new cruise terminal in the Cove slated for completion in November 2014 to accommodate expansion of cruise operations at Port Canaveral.
The larger recreational boat ramp complex will feature pavilions; fish-cleaning tables; restrooms; boat wash station; and accessibility for the disabled.
