Update - Tropicana Park and Cape Coral Rowing Club PUA Draft
Attached below is the NWNA pro forma Priority Use Agreement (PUA) for the public property the Rowing Club will occupy on Tropicana Park.
At a City Council Meeting in June, the dais discussion centered around stipulations to define the limits of the Rowing Club’s activities and facilities, to ensure the park would meet the needs of the Rowing Club, yet still remain a neighborhood park.
The Priority Use Agreement attached is by no means complete, but it does capture all of the discussion and commitments made in the June meeting.
The residents greatly appreciated the time Council dedicated to solving this highly contentious issue in our city. Their creativity and broad thinking delivered a solution that is a workable compromise, but its implementation as directed is contingent on the development of a Priority Use Agreement.
The NWNA is pleased to make the first pass at the PUA in an effort to continue to be a part of solutions to problems. We are at their service and are willing to meet and continue with these discussions and put the final touches on the agreement.
This work is intended to prevent the sort of vitriol we all experienced during the design of Tropicana Park. We are now at a point where decisions have been made and it’s time to execute. We would appreciate the opportunity to participate equally as these discussions take shape.
Kevin Black, Parks Chairman
