Step 1: FINANCING – First, the City Commission will pass a Master Bond Ordinance, giving the City permission to issue the bonds needed to finance the projects approved by voters in March. (April 10 and April 24) Step 2: TO-DO LIST – Behind every good project is a good game plan. The City Commission will establish a Projects Prioritization List—in other words, a “to-do list” for all approved projects. (April 24) Step 3: PAYMENT PLAN – The City must provide the Florida Department of Revenue and the Broward County Property Appraiser with a copy of the Master Bond Ordinance, which will serve to notify of the City’s intent to issue the bonds. (April 2018) Step 4: BOND APPROVAL – In June, the City Commission will approve the first series of bonds. (June) Step 5: CREDIT PACKAGE – Just like a mortgage, the City’s credit rating will determine the interest rate on bonds. In August, the City will submit a credit package to the national rating agency, which will determine the City’s credit rating. The better the rating, the lower the interest rate on the bonds.

Atlantic Blvd. Bridge Enhancements

I

mprovements to the Atlantic Boulevard Bridge, one of the beautiful gateways into Pompano Beach, is getting some much

needed enhancements. One of the most interesting features will be four large tensioned sails at each end of the bridge and computerized up-lighting allowing the colors of the sails to change for holidays such as red, white and blue for the Fourth of July. The idea is to continue the iconic theme of the beautiful sails featured on the beach parking garage. This project also consists of design and construction of enhancements to

A symbolic ribbon cutting was recently held by City officials utilizing fishing rods on top of the bridge forgoing the usual ribbon and scissors. Construction has commenced and will continue through summer 2019.

New Pompano Beach Library

T

he new library portion of the two-story Cultural Center facility is 26,000 square-feet, approximately twice the size of the old Pompano

Beach Branch Library, which closed in November 2017. The new library includes a multipurpose room, three tutoring rooms, one group study room, a conference room, a teen activity room, a storytelling/program room and a computer lab.

Broward County officials alongside City of Pompano Beach officials participate in the ceremonial ribbon cutting.

The new library is architecturally unique, offering bright wide open spaces to read a book or study. There are fifty thousand items in this library including books, DVDs, CDs, computers, 3D printers and virtual reality gear.

All are available to anyone with a

Broward County library card. Photos of the newly opened Broward County Library in Pompano Beach

The library provides 63 computers, found in the public areas and in the Computer Center, along with WiFi throughout the building. A Teen Tech Studio, designed to encourage young adults to creatively explore digital media, will feature seven computers, a 3D printer, virtual reality gear, gaming consoles and video production technology. The library also features Floridathemed public art by Gregg LeFevre. “This is a great day in Pompano Beach as we open this new library”, said Pompano Beach Mayor Lamar Fisher during the ribbon cutting ceremony. ”This is an iconic building in our City”. The new library is open from 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays; and from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays; and will be closed on Sundays.

Pompano Beach Fishing Village Comes Alive! Beach House Restaurant Opens and Oceanic Restaurant Breaks Ground Beach House Pompano Now Open! The first restaurant to open as part of the Pompano Pier Redevelopment project, Beach House opened on March 23 rd The restaurant boasts 12,000 square feet of coastal-cool atmosphere featuring rooftop stadium seating that offers unmatched ocean views for an incredible outdoor dining experience. The design of the restaurant was influenced by surf culture and sun soaked travel memories from around the world. The restaurant offers Brimstone Restaurant Group favorites such as their Cedar Plank Salmon and Meaty BBQ Beef Ribs, as well as new “Beach Bites” including the Lighthouse Ceviche made with scallops, shrimp, lobster, coconut milk, lime juice, cilantro, jalapeno, and crispy plantains, and Beach House Clams prepared with garlic, shallots, andouille sausage, white wine, fresh herbs, and grilled French bread. One of the most unique features to the Beach House restaurant is their rooftop lounge, complete with a second full bar and 8 stadium-seated banquets overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Each banquet comfortably seats 6-8 guests who can access their own ottoman style cooler. The Pompano Beach Fishing Village stands as an expanded collaboration between the project’s developer Pompano Pier Associates, the Pompano Beach CRA and Retail Sites International. When completed, the village will span more than six oceanfront acres, feature 48,000 square-feet of retail space, and will

Scoo-Bee Has Hit the Water

T

appropriately

named

“Scoo-Bee”.

The trash skimmer boat, a 23 foot Elastec Omni Catamaran, is the first of its kind the City has purchased that is specifically designed for canal cleaning. Designed to be easily maneuverable in hard to reach areas, the 23 foot 1

boat has an inverted bow to usher litter into its 98 cubic foot trash basket. The captured debris floats in the litter basket adding no weight to the boat, keeping the draft shallow. Removal is easy as the basket features strengthened corner points with lifting positions and shackles for crane hoisting. Wheeled fenders allow the craft to operate along canal walls where trash is most likely to collect. You’ll recognize the colorful canal cleaning boat coming through the canals with its yellow and black beelike markings.

Flood Damage The Flood Hazard Everyone should know their flood zone! Call the City Building Division at (954) 786-4670 to find out: • If a building is located in a Special Flood Hazard Area or not. • If a property is subject to erosion. • If the site area has local drainage problems, especially during heavy rain storms. • If the property is in an area that has had flood insurance claims filed repeatedly. • If there is an elevation certificate on file for a building. • To access the Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) for the City. Property Protection • Elevate furniture and other household valuables and electrical appliances, or move them to higher floors. • Place sandbags in strategic places around your property. Sandbags can slow down and divert flood waters. • Regrading your property to provide for better storage of stormwater runoff, in stalling an earthen berm along the perimeter, and elevating the existing structure are good flood damage protection practices. Some flood protection methods require a construction permit so always call the Building Division before making any alterations to your property at (954) 786-4670. Staff can offer suggestions and visit your site to offer property protection advice. If you see a project that does not have a permit sign, please contact the Building Division to report the possible violation. Flood Safety • Obey evacuation orders from officials. Evacuation orders are issued for imminent storm surge, not wind. • Know your evacuation zone and route, and shelter locations. Find your evacuation zone at www.Broward.org/ Emergency . • Stay away from power lines and electrical wires. Electrical current can

{Protect Your Home and Property}

travel through water. • Do not drive through flooded roadways. Roads may not be distinguishable from canals or ponds. • Do not walk through flowing waters. Flood Insurance • Everyone in Florida should purchase a flood insurance policy to protect their building and/or its contents, whether in a SFHA or not! • Most homeowners’ or renters’ insurance policies do not cover property losses due to flood waters. • Please note that there is usually a 30 day waiting period after purchase before coverage takes effect. • The City of Pompano Beach participates in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) and the Community Rating System program, which provides a dis count on all flood insurance policies. Be sure to look for this discount on your policy invoice. • Call your insurance agent today to purchase flood insurance. If you don’t have an agent, go to the FloodSmart.gov website, or call 1-800 427-4661 for help. The City is available to assist. Call (954) 111-1111. Stormwater Management Water from rain storms is managed through a system of pipes and drainage canals. Constant water flow through canals, especially during heavy storms, is essential to flood damage protection in the City. City and State laws prohibit dumping trash in waterways. Please report violators to the Public Works Department at (954) 786-4637. Only Storm Water Down the Drain • Please keep in mind that it is everyone’s responsibility to insure that our water ways are kept clean. • Oils, lawn clippings and other substances should never be put down a storm drain. • If you see someone improperly disposing of waste into the storm drain

system or waterways, or any other illicit discharge, please call the Public Works Department at (954) 786-4637. Benefits of Natural Floodplains Natural areas of the City typically collect and retain stormwater runoff during rainfall events which can reduce the flooding levels within the developed areas of the City. These natural areas also enhance the water quality of stormwater runoff by filtering through the ground. Sand dunes on the beach are nature’s protection against inland flooding from waves and high tides accompanying major storms. It is everyone’s responsibility to protect these natural areas and keep them clean! Sea Level Rise The consequences of sea level rise in Pompano Beach may include the following impacts: • Increased frequency of flooding in vulnerable coastal areas and inundation of inland areas, • socio-economic impacts such as displacement, • decreases in property values and tax base, and • increases in insurance costs. • Visit the Broward County Environmental Planning website at www.Broward.org for more information about sea level rise. For More Information • Go to the Broward County Emergency Management Department website at www.Broward.org/Emergency or call 954.831.4000. • Go to the Pompano Beach website at www.PompanoBeachFL.gov and go to the Development Services Division page for flood info, or call 954.786.4600. • Twitter: @mypompanobeach • Facebook: Pompano Beach City Hall. • The Broward County Public Library has many flood-related documents. Search the catalog for “flood” and “FEMA”.
