Bayfront Development Projects Update –
• Marina Shores Marina Apartments – Deferred until the Oct. 11th meeting of the Planning Commission. Presentation made to Cape Story by the Sea Civic Association. Updates will be discussed.
• Bay Lake Assisted Living Facility Expansion – Approved by City Council with an 11-0 vote. One speaker voiced concerns over adding two new left turns that cross Shore Drive at the intersection of Indian Hill Road. City Traffic Engineers said the low traffic volumes and slow speed limit of 35mph won’t make extra conflict points a safety hazard.
• Resort Conference Hotel Proposal to Convert to Assisted Living Facility – No new details
• Mermaid Winery – Approved by City Council. Scheduled to open by the end of 2017.
VB proposed changes to Route 35 and other bus services – Bus route operation is now only Friday-Sunday until Labor Day. The City continues to make plans to run the route next summer with shorter wait times and improved service. Community support for increased budget of $100k for an extra bus may be required.
