The Committee will work closely with City staff and a professional planner. The Committee will not be responsible for originating all the ideas that will ultimately be implemented.

The Committee will convene workshops in mid-Beach with residents and merchants to develop an approach that revitalizes the street and enhance its amenities. But it will need your input and ideas.
