CLEARWATER, Fla. – The community is invited to attend one or all of the upcoming public information sessions to see the 30 percent designs for the Imagine Clearwater waterfront redevelopment master plan and to share feedback on the designs. 

The public information sessions will be held:

Dec. 3, 6 – 8 p.m. at Clearwater Main Library, 100 N. Osceola Ave in Downtown Clearwater

Dec. 4, 6 – 8 p.m. Countryside Library, 2642 Sabal Springs Drive, Clearwater

Dec. 7, 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. Countryside Mall, 27001 US Hwy 19 N., Clearwater

Dec. 10, 6 – 8 p.m. North Greenwood Recreation Center, 900 N. Martin Luther King Jr. Ave., Clearwater

“We are excited to show the public the 30 percent drawings,” said Michael Delk, the city of Clearwater’s  assistant city manager. “Things like the green, the playground area, splash pad and boardwalk will make this a signature park for the entire community.” 

The “30-60-90” design development process is common across many design industries. Design plans are provided to the project site owner at 30 percent, 60 percent and 90 percent completion. At each stage of the design process, the plan sets become more complex and technical.

At 30 percent design completion, the public can expect to see a refined project schedule and scope and finalized design criteria. Spatial requirements for design elements are determined (“Will all these things fit?”), but very few specific dimensions are determined. Textures, colors and materials are only loosely determined and may change. Feedback at the 30 percent phase is helpful and can be incorporated into the next phase of design plans.

Along with the public information sessions, city staff will be sharing the 30 percent designs and the public’s feedback at a Dec. 16 session with the Clearwater City Council.

The public will have an opportunity to see and provide feedback on the 60 percent and 90 percent design completion in 2020. 

Imagine Clearwater represents a vision of Clearwater by the citizens of Clearwater. While Stantec, the city of Clearwater's consultant on Imagine Clearwater, has been exploring ways to transform Imagine Clearwater from a master plan into a reality, it is paramount that the design stays true to the vision of this community.
