Recently there have been some exciting changes to the City’s approach to
managing our waterfront. The concept of these changes called for the
consolidation of all City waterfront responsibilities.
This includes the deep-water port activities (i.e.: Cruise
Ships, Navy vessel activity coordination), development of the BRAC
properties related to the port, Key
West Bight, City
Marina and the City’s new Mooring
Field. The Port
Operations department also serves as the City’s liaison to the two
boards that are directly associated with the waterfront: the Key
West Bight Board and the Port
The objective of the Plan
is to make our City waterfront operate more efficiently, as well as
effectively. As the City’s mission statement states, we are “ to
maximize services to our customers in the most cost effective way”.
Not only does the consolidation make for a more efficient and
effective operation, it also provides for better accountability and a more
consistent approach in the interpretations of policy and procedures
affecting the waterfront environment.
The City’s Vision
states “ We will strive to be a user-friendly city, establishing an
atmosphere of trust and confidence by providing quality, professional
services.” The recent realignment of responsibilities reinforces that
thought and direction.
waterfront is yours, to some the waterfront is our heritage, to others it
is what has drawn us here, whatever the reason - Protect and Enjoy it!
