Port Operations Logo

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 Advisory Board.

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.

The 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!
