Imagine Clearwater is a plan to reactivate the city’s waterfront and downtown in a bid to spur economic development. The project examines the redevelopment of a 19-acre waterfront and downtown property that stretches from the existing Coachman Park and public parking lot to its west, to the Harborview Center. The Clearwater Main Library is along the northeast boundary of the site.
Stantec said that its team will provide master plan concept validation and pre-design services. The team recently finished several noise studies of the existing band shell at Coachman Park and are evaluating the information and its impact on the overall masterplan concept.
The company said that it will work with the Clearwater City Council to further refine some of Imagine Clearwater’s design elements. A public meeting to present the plan to the community and stakeholders is being planned for late summer 2018 and a groundbreaking is expected in 2019.
