Working with the Pompano Beach Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA), EDSA led a multidisciplinary team of consultants, tasked to create a plan for the beach environment and existing streetscape along Pompano Beach Boulevard. Due to the public nature and high visibility of the project, promoting public involvement and building consensus within the community at the earliest stages, were imperative to guiding the framework of the plan.
The collaborative process, which bolstered public support and approval, was very successful and led to the inclusion of additional funds to benefi t the project. Some primary elements of the design include a signature public plaza which also includes an interactive water feature, roadway and parking improvements, an extensive beach promenade, multi-purpose kiosk building, and state of the art playground. Another key element which was negotiated at the state level as a trade off t expanding the beach development involved reestablishing the deteriorated dune system through native dune plantings protective barriers and controlled beach accesses.
