Pier Parking Opens With a Bang! By Sandra King, Public Communications Director

T

he 4 th of July holiday weekend this year was kicked off with the much anticipated Pier Garage grand opening with an all day celebration that culminated in fireworks. If you haven’t seen it yet,

it is worth a visit. The garage includes an array of iconic architecture features including canvas wrapped and LED lit sails surrounding all sides, landscaped rooftop deck, a glass elevator overlooking the ocean and a larger than life aquatic mural. The Pompano Beach Pier Parking Garage is the first public parking garage in the City of Pompano Beach and is being funded by parking revenues generated by the structure. “We have set the stage for future development in our City with this landmark project,” said Mayor Lamar Fisher. “We didn’t just want a garage; we wanted to create something iconic that will have a lasting impression.” The Pier Parking Garage is located at NE 2nd Street between A1A and Pompano Beach Boulevard. In addition to adding an additional 663 spaces to the beachfront area, the project will also include the City’s first Tourism Visitor Center on the ground floor, restaurants, retail and the development of two new streets – Pier Street and Seabreeze Way. The City’s investment in this project has paved the way for future first class amenities for residents and visitors to enjoy. class amenities for residents and visitors to enjoy.

Pompano Beach Fishin g Village The opening of the beautiful new Pier Parking Garage is just the beginning of the amazing things still ahead in Pompano Beach. In the coming months, construction will begin on the Pompano Beach Fishing Village. The Pompano Beach Fishing Village is a mixed-use redevelopment project spanning six oceanfront acres at the foot of the Pompano Beach Pier. Plans for the site include 48,500 square feet of restaurant and retail space, a new pedestrian promenade linking the Pier with the Intracoastal Waterway, docks along the Intracoastal for proposed Water Taxis and other watercraft and of course a new Pier. This redevelopment project will transform the Pompano Beach waterfront, creating a world-class destination. Two restaurants have already signed leases and are well on their way to breaking ground on the sand directly north of Pier. The first, Oceanic oceanfront ining is a seafood themed restaurant and bar.

Station 103 Grand Opening Pompano Beach City officials ceremoniously cut the ribbon, or in this case uncoupled the hose, to celebrate the completion of Fire Station 103 located in the Cresthaven area of the City at 3721 NE 12 th Avenue. Building the new fire station was extremely important as the old fire station was a converted neighborhood community center that was remodeled to temporarily accommodate the newly annexed area.

The new fire station includes a 13,204 square foot two story building to withstand category 5 hurricane force winds. The station has a standing seam metal roof, exterior impact windows, doors with concrete block and stucco finishes. Sustainable design features include Xeriscape landscaping, future connection to reclaimed water for irrigation, low-flow plumbing fixtures, roof mounted solar panels for water heater, a full back up

W

hen Pompano greeted the new year of 1926, they had little reason to expect that the year would not end with the

city being more populated, prosperous and progressive. After all, hadn’t Pompano made great strides in recent years? The early 1920s had brought about a number of improvements for the area: the town’s first bank, paved roads, a bridge across Hillsboro Inlet, a municipal water system, sanitary sewers, a resident physician and a dramatic expansion of the population, to name just a few. Also, on that New

had recognized that as the City grew, it would need to provide more modern services to its citizens, including more extensive fire protection. Fueled by increased tax revenues, in 1925 the City Council approved building a fire station on NE 4th Avenue, between 2nd Pompano’s first fire truck found in Fort Lauderdale

and 3rd Streets. It also solicited bids for a fire truck, and voted to purchase a Type 75 pumper from the American LaFrance Fire Engine Company of Elmira, New York, one of the country’s oldest manufacturer of fire-fighting vehicles and equipment. The American LaFrance Type 75 was one of the company’s most popular models. The first Type 75 rolled off the assembly line in 1915 and by 1926, the fire engine was well-tested in the field, with many modifications made over time. One factor that made the engine so popular was that it was engineered so that routine repairs in the field were relatively easy, with parts being readily Retired Pompano Beach Firefighter Rob Brantley with restored fire truck.

On September 18,

1926, a monstrous hurricane struck South Florida causing extensive damage to both buildings and agricultural areas, along with loss of life numbering in the hundreds. Added to this natural disaster, was a collapse of the real estate bubble that had caused property prices to skyrocket. Suddenly, people found that their homes, businesses and land were worth only a fraction of what they had paid for them. Tens of thousands of people left South Florida, never to return. As the population and property values fell, so too did municipal revenues, and all the expenditures that had been made with the expectation of continued growth were now financial liabilities. In the case of Pompano, there was no money to pay for its new fire engine. There was a real fear that the American LaFrance Company might repossess Pompano’s new fire engine, but with the onset of the Great Depression, cities and towns across the nation found themselves out of funds.

THE STORY OF THE FERAL CHICKEN The roots of Pompano Beach run all the way back to a small farming community beginning over a century ago where one might see chickens scratching around. As this farming community was developed into a beachside metropolitan destination, a lot has changed, but some things have not. While travelling through some areas of the City, chickens can still be spotted crossing roads, scratching or strutting around. In several areas, groups of these chickens can be observed roaming freely across

Flood Damage This article is required by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to satisfy provisions in the Community Rating System (CRS) for reduced costs for flood insurance.The following is offered to Pompano Beach residents to help prevent and minimize the impact on lives and property caused by floodwaters.

Flood Hazard Map

The City has copies of FEMA’s Flood Criteria Map identifying flood zones for all properties in the city. The FEMA Flood Hazard Areas found within the City limits include Zone X, Zone AE, Zone AH, and Zone VE. The map depicts the flood hazard associated with any parcel in the City. A summarized flood zone map is located in the Building Inspections Division at City Hall and is available in electronic GIS format.

Flood Risk

Although we have been relatively fortunate for many years, the flooding on Halloween 2011 as well as the recent astronomical flooding of 2015 reminds us of the possibility of a flooding event without a major storm or hurricane. The risk of flooding within the City of Pompano Beach can increase by the presence of higher water levels within the Atlantic Ocean and the Intracoastal Waterway due to storm surge. In general, property located east of State Road A1A within the City has been designated as a coastal zone which encounters greater flooding risk due to waves and storm surge during a significant storm event.

Flood Warning System

The City of Pompano Beach, in coordination with Broward County, has a warning system to notify residents of impending flood danger. Warnings will be transmitted on public address systems such as the City’s website, CODE RED, television channel 78, telephone, and on a door-to-door basis. Listen for instructions during times of flood risk.

Flood Safety

These are precautionary steps to consider before possible flooding: • Listen to radio or television for warnings. • Obey warning and evacuation instructions from disaster officials. • Know your evacuation zone and route. • Take your own essentials (food, toiletries, clothes, blankets, etc.). • Turn off the electricity and gas before leaving your home. • Bring a battery-operated flashlight. • Be careful at all times, particularly at night, and try to remain calm. • Do not drive through flooded roadways • Do not walk through high waters • Stay away from electrical wires

Flood Insurance

Most homeowners’ insurance policies do not cover property losses due to flood waters. To

{Protect Your Home and Property}

insure your property for flood damage, you need a flood insurance policy. If you do not have valid flood insurance, contact an agent immediately. Property owners can insure property; renters can insure possessions. The City of Pompano Beach participates in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) to provide city residents with the initial qualification to purchase flood insurance. Flood insurance typically covers the building structure but not the contents so verify your coverage for contents under your homeowner’s insurance. Please note that there is a 30-day waiting period after purchase before NFIP flood insurance coverage takes effect. The City currently participates in FEMA’s CRS program to enable our residents to qualify for lower flood insurance premiums.

Property Protection

There are ways to minimize property losses from flood damage, including: • Move furniture and other household valu ables to rooms or spaces in the upper story of a two-story dwelling or a location higher than the lowest floor elevation in a single story home. • Place sandbags in strategic places around your property prior to flood status. When sandbags are placed correctly at proper locations, they can slow up and divert flood waters. • Upgrading your property can include regrading your property to provide for on-site storage of stormwater runoff, installing an earthen berm along the perimeter, retrofitting the existing structure to be flood proofed, or elevating the existing structure to raise the finished floor elevation.

Development Permits

All development (new construction, additions, renovations, alterations to properties, etc.) in the City of Pompano Beach requires a construction permit. The NFIP and the Florida Building Code requires the entire building to conform to the flood mitigation requirements for new buildings when repairs or alterations exceed 50 percent of the building’s fair market value. All applicable building permit applications must conform to this requirement when submitted to the Building Inspections Division. The requirement may also apply if a building is substantially damaged. Before building on, altering a building, or replacing fill on your property, always check with the Building Division on permit requirements. A permit may be required to ensure that the construction does not negatively impact adjacent properties. If an ongoing construction project within a City does not have a posted permit sign, please contact the City’s Building Division to report the possible violation.

Stormwater Management

Stormwater is managed through a system of pipes and drainage canals maintained regularly by our Public Works and Utilities Departments, the Broward County Office of Environmental Services and South Florida Water Management District. Constant water flow through these canals, especially during heavy storms, is essential to flood prevention in the City. City and state laws prohibit dumping trash in waterways. Report violators to the Public Works Department at 954.786.4060.

Natural Habitat

Natural areas of the City provide a beneficial function by reducing the potential severity of flooding. These natural areas typically collect and retain stormwater runoff during rainfall events and allow for the infiltration of stormwater into the natural ground surface, 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 allowing suspended sediments and nutrients to settle during the retention period. State regulations protect those natural areas that help to reduce the risks associated with flooding. Along the beach, no new structures are permitted seaward of the Coastal Construction Line without permission. Other restrictions protect some wetland areas from development.

Rate Reductions

On June 11th, 1993, FEMA awarded the City with a Class 9 rating in the CRS. This rating earned Pompano Beach residents a five percent discount on flood insurance premiums. In September 1994, the City received official notification that Pompano Beach residents are eligible for an additional five percent discount, or ten percent total, on flood insurance based on the City complying with the requirements for a Class 8 rating in the CRS. In July 2012, FEMA awarded the City a class 7 rating, so flood insurance policy holders in special flood hazard areas within the City currently receive a 15% discount insurance premiums.

Additional Information

We urge City residents to visit www.broward. org or visit the Building Inspections Division to determine the flood zone and flood elevation for their property. Pompano Beach City Hall is at 100 W. Atlantic Boulevard, Pompano Beach, Florida. The Pompano Beach Branch of the Broward County Library, located at 1213 East Atlantic Boulevard, has information on flood insurance, flood protection and floodplain management. For More Information email floodzoneinfo@copbfl.com or contact Paola West, City of Pompano Beach CRS Coordinator at 954.454.7780 or Michael Rada, City of Pompano Beach Floodplain Manager at 954.786.4062.
