What will the $30 million for public improvements be used for?

  • December 9, 2016

The agreement calls for $15 million in onsite public improvements – roads, utility lines, etc. – and $15 million for offsite public improvements. The offsite improvements include a major upgrade to the intersection of U.S. 79 and Harrell Parkway – which will be a major entrance into the resort – as well as an upgraded railroad crossing further east on U.S. 79 that accesses a regional wastewater treatment plant. Improvements to the intersection of U.S. 79 and Joe DiMaggio Boulevard are also included. There will also a new public roadway connecting Kenney Fort Boulevard to U.S. 79 and improvements to public utilities.

All onsite and offsite public improvements will be owned by the City.
