City launches Yacht Club Community Park Project website
The City of Cape Coral recently launched a new website, www.ccyachtclub.com, to keep residents informed on the Yacht Club Community Park improvements that are being funded in part by the Parks GO Bond. Cape Coral voters approved the $60 million Bond in 2018, which will fund parks and recreation improvements throughout the city.
The new website will provide residents with regular updates on the current status of the Yacht Club Community Park planned improvements. Website visitors can sign up for news and updates that will be delivered directly to their email inbox. The website includes project renderings and the approved concept plan for the project. A construction timeline will be added to the website when it is available. The goal of the website is to provide accurate information about the construction project.
City Council approved the Yacht Club Community Park concept plan in October 2020. The plan includes moving the boat ramp to the yacht basin area, an expanded beach area, a parking garage, a harbormaster and police marine unit building, seawall replacement, landscaping, and a barrier for yacht basin customers. The estimated cost of improvements is about $36 million with about $14 million of the cost being funded by the Parks GO Bond.
Earlier this month, the City Council selected a firm to provide construction manager at-risk (CMAR) services. The CMAR will conduct pre-construction services, which include determining a guaranteed maximum price and establishing a construction schedule.
