Tee Up A Design For Your Dream Golf Course In The South End

WPB Golf Course

This Thursday’s SENA meeting will address one big topic: What would South End Residents and those who utilize the golf course like the city to put into a request for proposal for the possible development of the golf course.

A request for proposal (RFP) is a type of bidding solicitation in which the City announces that funding is available for a particular project or program, and companies can place bids for the project’s completion. Think of this as an opportunity to create a “wish list” of ideas that the City can use as a benchmark to help them draft the RFP. This can include things like: where should the entrance be, what size clubhouse, what amenities at the clubhouse, etc.

Need inspiration to get your started? Check out a drone video of the course here.

The meeting will be

Thursday July 7th,
6:30 pm
The South Olive Recreation Center (345 Summa Street)

See Into The Southend’s Future Tomorrow Morning

crystal ball

With two public meetings and a 3-day design charette behind them (see more info here), the RMA is ready to unveil its options for the development of the 8111 S. Dixie Highway property. See the note from SENA below.

Dear Neighbors,

As you may know RMA, the company which manages the City of West Palm Beach’s Community Redevelopment Agency, has been working to create some proposals for the development of the 8111 site and possible tie-ins with the golf course and the Palm Coast Plaza.

After two public meetings and a 3-day design charrette, RMA developed some options which they will present to the public tomorrow at 10am. This is hugely important for the South End and we need as many people to come and show support as possible.
RMA will be presenting on Tuesday at 10am
at the Flagler Gallery, City Hall

We hope to see you there!

Best regards,
Your South End Neighbors

What’s Happening On Gregory Road? Find Out This Thursday…

Meeting reminder

From the Southend Neighborhood Association:

Thursday July 9th at 6:30 pm., please join SENA and the City of West Palm Beach Public Works Department to discuss an important project set on Gregory Road. The City and FPL will be making a powerpoint presentation with an open discussion to address FPL’s current project. FPL is set to replace all the old wood poles with concrete poles.

The City has asked SENA to facilitate communication between our members, FPL and the City. The specific area that is affected is Gregory Road between Olive Ave. and Dixie Highway. The discussion will focus on placement options, back of sidewalk or within the swale area.

Even if you do not live on Gregory, we are all neighbors and share in what happens in our community. We would like to make sure we have a large turnout. City is providing refreshments.

Looking forward to seeing you there.

Best regards,
Your South End Neighbors

Help Design The Next Chapter of West Palm Beach’s Southend Neighborhood

SouthDixieProperty

In 2012, after rumors began circulating that Wal-Mart had eyes on developing 8111 South Dixie Highway (the site of the old IHOP), the City purchased the 7-acre piece of property for $2.9 million. City leaders wanted to focus on a more innovative project that would help continue revitalizing the Southend. And, as the Southern most piece of property in West Palm Beach, leaders view it as as the gateway to the City for those coming from the South.

ihop

The site was cleared in October of last year and now the City of West Palm Beach is looking for help with the redevelopment of 8111.  From the 18th till the 21st of May, the City will be hosting Design Charrettes.

The Design Charrette Kickoff meeting is tonight, May 18th at the South Olive Community Center, 345 Summa St, @ 6:30PM.

Come visit the Design Charrette Sessions, which will be held in the Hibiscus Room at Mandel Public Library

Tuesday, May 19 – Open to Public 6PM to 8PM
Wednesday, May 20 – Open to Public 6PM to 8PM
Thursday, May 21– Open to Public 10AM to 12PM

The designers will be working each of the 3 days from 9:30AM to 8:00PM.

The public session will be available for the public to come view what the designers are working on and give their feedback and ideas as the designs are developed.

Want to view the final plans and see what’s next for the Southend?

On May 20 at 6PM, you’re invited to sit in on a special session where the Parks Master plan draft will be unveiled.

This is your chance to help create the kind of neighborhood you want to live in. Don’t let the opportunity to get involved pass you by.
