Developer Selection Expected This Fall

As you may know from previous bulletins, the City intends to redevelop the Echo Bay waterfront into an attractive shoreline community with a continuous waterfront promenade, appropriately-scaled housing and shops, open space, and sight lines from surrounding neighborhoods. Earlier this year, several planning teams competing for the opportunity to redevelopment Echo Bay made detailed presentations to the City Council. In case you missed them, those presentations can now be viewed on-line HERE. Please note that you will need Windows Media Player to view the video (a little frustrating for me, as a Mac user.) The Council will receive from our staff a comprehensive review of the various submission in October, and we anticipate selecting a single developer shortly thereafter.
