Project Description

This project provides a transportation corridor for pedestrians and cyclists needed to support commerce and economic development at the southern entrance to the Charlotte Harbor redevelopment area. The objectives are to construct a boardwalk that provides an alternative transportation corridor across US 41 for pedestrians and cyclists, construct a fishing pier and a boat taxi launch facility. Direct component funds will be used toward the construction of the boardwalk while other project funds will be used to construct the fishing pier and boat taxi launch at the site. The Harbor Walk is a project located in an area designated by the County as the Charlotte Harbor Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA). The Florida Legislature enables local units of government to establish CRA's in areas where "slum" and "blight" exist with the goal to encourage local initiatives to revitalize older downtowns and declining residential neighborhoods. Each CRA must develop a Community Redevelopment Plan which identify proposals for future land use, private sector development opportunities and recommended public investment in capital improvements. The vision of the Charlotte Harbor CRA's plan is to develop a mix of uses: residential, retail, and tourist-related that will support commerce and economic development in the area. The Harbor Walk project is located at "front door" of the Charlotte Harbor CRA and will be the first part of the area that residents and tourists will see as they cross the bridge over the Peace River from Punta Gorda, Florida to Charlotte Harbor. Currently, the site is undeveloped and does not have any public facilities.
