The City of Port St. Lucie held a public workshop, known as a design charrette, to solicit public input on the future development of a 9.75 acre city-owned parcel on Westmoreland Blvd. on March 13.
Nearly 100 people attended the charrette and toured the site. Participants provided input on the future development of the site including linkages to the Riverwalk Boardwalk to the north, enhanced public access, recreational opportunities, cultural activities and commercial uses.
The American Institute of Architects Treasure Coast Chapter conducted the charrette on behalf of the City of Port St. Lucie.
Over the next few weeks, the American Institute of Architects Treasure Coast Chapter members will review each of the proposed master plans from the charrette and bring them together into a single conceptual master plan. This design will be presented to the City Council and the public for additional input.
The parcel is one of three city-owned parcels on Westmoreland Blvd. with direct access to the North Fork of the St. Lucie River. It includes the Botanical Gardens to the north and a conservation tract to the south. The 9.75 parcel has been identified by City Council for river-related development and recreational uses to enhance public access to the North Fork of the St. Lucie River, in association with the southern extension of the Riverwalk Boardwalk.
For more information about the charrette, listen to a discussion with Assistant City Manager Daniel Holbrook and President of the Treasure Coast Chapter of AIA Raul Ocampo on the "Positively Port St. Lucie" radio show.
