G.O. Bond Project Prioritization List

On April 24, 2018, the City Commission approved the following G.O. Bond project prioritization list. The City will be selling G.O. bonds in two phases. The first bonds will be sold in the fall of 2018, in order to have the funds needed to design all 25 G.O. Bond projects, but to only pay for the construction costs associated with the “Phase I” projects shown below. By the fall of 2021, the City will be selling the remaining G.O. Bonds, in order to raise the funds needed to pay the constructions costs for the projects labeled as “Phase II”. The City anticipates that it may take up to 3 years from the time that the City has G.O. Bond monies in hand to complete G.O. Bond projects. As an example, “Phase I” projects would be completed by the fall of 2021 and “Phase II” projects would be completed by the fall of 2024.

GO Pompano! Update: The Latest on the Path to Building

Last year, the City worked out the dollars and cents for Go Pompano!, but local officials also worked behind the scenes to jump start the path to building. Here’s a look at last year’s progress, as well as some important next steps before construction can commence—one of which includes you!

Step 1: Recruiting – Like any big construction project, Go Pompano! needs talented contractors, architects and engineers to get the job done right. In August 2018, local officials sent out a call for talented designers and builders, then ranked them based on qualifications, price and other considerations. By December 2018, the list of recruits was complete.

Step 2: Approval – Once local officials compiled a large enough pool of talent, they sent their list of top recruits to the City Commission for approval. The Commission completed the approval process in February 2019, giving local officials permission to engage the top-ranking firms and negotiate contracts.

Step 3: Negotiation & Approval – Local officials are currently negotiating contracts with the top-ranking firms. They have until June to bring those contracts back to the City Commission, and the commission will have until July 2019 to approve them.

Step 4: Public Outreach MeetingsThis step involves you! The City has prescheduled 36 public outreach meetings between April 15th and August 6th. Each meeting will include a public presentation on Go Pompano! and a chance for you to make your voice heard!

Step 5: Design – Once local officials receive your input, it’s a race to the drawing board! The City will then sit down with its consultants to design each project. The goal is to complete the design phase by mid-2020.

As you can see, we still have several important steps to complete before we can break ground on these exciting improvements to Pompano Beach. But local officials are putting the pedal to the metal to ensure our Go Pompano! projects are completed as soon as possible.

In the meantime, check out our full list of Public Outreach meetings:
