The first two concepts include the following amenities:

  • Playground
  • Expanded beach
  • 6,700-square-foot restaurant
  • 15,000-square-foot resort-style pool

Continuing on the first concept is a community center, the existing boathouse restaurant, a boat fuel pump, a three-level parking deck, boat ramp and a pier with a boardwalk.

“Realistically, I think it’s just to have the normalcy back. I’d like to see the Yacht Club and the boats back in there and just have everything get closer to back to what I call normalcy, again,” said Ross Manahan, a Cape Coral resident.

The second concept will feature some of the options of the first alongside new choices. The list of design options includes a proposed restaurant, a resort-style pool with a 1,500 square foot children’s pool attached alongside 74 surface parking spaces.

It’s important to mention the boat refueling station will remain no matter what.

The yacht club beach is set to reopen for the first time since Hurricane Ian on Friday.

The city committee held a preliminary meeting on Wednesday where the Cape Coral residents viewed the concept design plans.

The overall opinion of the attendees was positive.

The next committee meeting will be held in January.
