Port receives master plan update grant

The first step for the update is a stakeholders’ meeting, or public hearing, concerning the port’s plans, the lands they are planning for development and seeking input.

Some stakeholders are identified and invited, Pitts said.

Those include both the municipalities in the county, the Board of County Commissioners, the Gulf County Economic Council/Chamber of Commerce, Opportunity Florida and Waterfronts Florida among others.

Beyond that, the meeting seeks input from all interested parties concerning the direction the port is moving.

“What we’re doing is providing an opportunity for comments and feedback,” Pitts said. “This is the first step, the time for interested parties to share their thoughts about the port and port development.”

The ability to do the work primarily in house is important for a port that is as yet undeveloped and in need of revenue.

Pitts has been involved in two other updates of the same plan and the requirements for some technical data have been moved to later in the process, Pitts said he is confident the work can be completed in-house.
