The Pompano Beach Civic Campus Master Plan builds on the tremendous visioning and planning efforts undertaken by a spectrum of local and regional stakeholders to enhance the vibrancy, connectivity, economic and social vitality, and place-specific character of Pompano Beach. A comprehensive analysis of the site’s opportunities and constraints make the Master Plan an inherently contextual document. It draws its forms and organizations from the existing and historic built and environmental fabric of the city. The FEC railroad line, a primary founding element of Pompano Beach and a catalyst of current redesign initiatives, along with the diagonal trajectories of Flagler Avenue and the canals introduce a skewed north-south axis to the site.
Existing drainage patterns inform the placement of infiltration gardens. Frontage along busy W. Atlantic Boulevard provides ideal visibility and accessibility for thousands of community members. Increased density and forward-thinking circulation and parking strategies allow users to quickly and conveniently reach their destinations. The Civic Campus Master Plan seeks to reveal and strengthen frameworks of the past while looking to the future of the city of Pompano Beach. The introduction of new, innovative architectural and landscape elements create an iconic center for the city and draw people south, spurring additional development.
