Waterway Sign Project Complete
The City has successfully completed a Waterway Sign Project in the Pithlachascotee River that included the replacement of 23 channel marker signs. Regulatory swimming area buoys were installed in Miller’s Bayou. Additionally, eight timber pilings were drilled in various locations throughout the channel. Buoys and markers are the "traffic signals" that guide boat operators safely along waterways. They serve important functions in the City’s waterways by identifying dangerous or controlled areas, giving directions, and providing information. The City completed this project along with Water Ventures LLC, a marine contracting firm located in Port Richey.
Waterfront Park Design Charrette
The City's design charrette was a great opportunity to get community input on upgrading Waterfront Park. You can watch footage from the public workshop that was held on Saturday, October 27 below.
