The Debate Continues
Is it a park, or is it a restaurant? Why not both? Why not more than both? Over the past several weeks BocaWatch has attempted to make it clear: Ordinance 5356, which will appear on the November 8 ballot, does not limit the opportunity for multi-use activities on City-owned land adjacent to the Intracoastal Waterway. That statement was made clear by none other than the City of Boca Raton City Attorney and the Deputy City Manager during a public hearing. In spite of that public information, a number of those individuals that favor a restaurant only, have falsely claimed that the issue of Ordinance 5356 is simply; a park versus a restaurant. Simple, but false.
Open Your Mind to the Possibilities
A small footprint, culinary experience on a waterfront park setting is achievable, alongside interactive public art, walking paths, and recreation. It requires vision, imagination, and the will to aspire to something better than a single, full-blown, brick and mortar restaurant that includes more than a 70% asphalt parking lot. Yes folks, fresh asphalt, in abundance, on a prime piece of City-owned waterfront property – property the citizens own. We can do better.
We Can Make This a Winner for Everyone
Think Culinary! Think Small Scale! Think Creatively!
On November 8th you can vote your imagination – vote Yes on Ordinance 5356 to keep waterfront parks available for recreation, boating, public gathering places, fun and more.
