Upcoming & Current Initiatives
David Park (Phase Two)
David Park is located in the middle of the MCRA district and has long been noted as a facility in need of enhancements. The George Mudd Playground construction has been completed to make the play area accessible by replacing the sand area with a poured floor surface and new playground equipment. Phase II will include additional parking, the addition of outdoor restroom facilities and a covered picnic pavilion area set to begin fall/winter 2017.
Located within a residential area but close to State Road 7, this roadway is often used as a cut through from the surrounding neighborhoods, generating high traffic volume and complaints of speeding. The MCRA is working with the engineering firm Keith and Associates and the project is currently in the final design phase.
Axia Creative was selected as the consultant to create a branded and consistent Wayfinding Signage Program. The primary objective was to have a positive effect on the City of Margate’s sense of place and improve overall navigation through the community and to its key destinations. The final designs are now complete and a formal bid is to be issued shortly for fabrication and installation.
An architect was selected and design is well underway of a covered sports field and concession/restroom building to be located on vacant property at the entrance to the City Sports Complex on Banks Road. The open air, covered field, almost an acre in size, will be multi-purposed for a variety of youth sports in a weather-protected environment. It is anticipated that design, permitting and bidding will be completed in 2017, with groundbreaking to occur in late 2017.
Copans Road Median Landscape Improvements
The medians along Copans Road between State Road 7 and the eastern CRA Boundary will be improved to include landscape and irrigation upgrades. This renovation is set to beautify the area and continue the landscape improvements of Royal Palm Boulevard and Coconut Creek which is currently in the final design phase.
Public Art Utility Box Project
Utility boxes throughout the City of Margate, mostly located at or near intersections. Phase one of this project will include 11 utility boxes along Atlantic Boulevard, Coconut Creek Parkway, and Copans Road within the city limits. Margate is seeking to expand its public art, and this project has the opportunity to beautify the City using already existing canvases that are primed for art work.
