THE PORT AND PROJECT STUDY AREA

The Port of Fort Pierce is one of Florida’s 14 deep water seaports. Initially created as a maritime freight and logistics center for the movement of Treasure Coast agricultural products and other cargos, today’s Port of Fort Pierce functions as a hybrid of working waterfront elements and community infrastructure.  The Project Study Area consists of approximately 255 acres (Red Area).  This zone includes the new Derecktor Shipyard (ex-Indian River Terminal), vacant greenfield properties, Harbour Point Park, and marine facilities flanking the mouth of Taylor Creek.

The Port Operations Area (Orange Line) and Port Planning Area (Blue Dashed Line) are also included in the Master Plan update.  Parcels, uses, and features found in each will be reviewed to ensure alignment with elements considered for the Project Study Area.

COMMUNITY SURVEY TWO 

PART 1.  DRAFT PROJECT MISSION STATEMENT AND CORE PLANNING TENETS 

The project mission statement and core planning tenets provide guidance for development of each initial planning concept, and ultimately, the final Master Plan.  From community survey results and stakeholder outreach, a draft mission statement and five planning tenets were prepared.  Please review each as part of the questions below.

1. The following draft mission statement was prepared for the planning effort.

"Align and enable public and private land holdings to foster creation of the Treasure Coast's premier center for yacht and related marine industry maintenance, repair, and overhaul activity. Leverage success to propel sustainable growth of Fort Pierce's economy and quality of life."

Does this mission statement accurately capture the future direction the Port should take moving forward?

PART 2. PRELIMINARY CONCEPTS FOR THE PORT OF FORT PIERCE

In Part 2, we present three initial planning concepts. Concepts represent initial thoughts and ideas for reinvisioning the Port of Fort Pierce based on the Community Priorities Survey results and feedback from Public Engagement Session One. Planning concepts were developed using the draft core tenets and framework established for the project area. They also consider the Planning Team's general sense of financial feasibility, ease of implementation, permissibility by regulatory agencies, and community acceptance of project elements.

Please keep in mind that the planning concepts are preliminary and will evolve as the master planning process advances over the coming weeks.  Also, many of the ideas can be mixed and matched to form a hybrid of concepts for developed as the preferred direction and ultimate Master Plan.  

CONCEPT 1

Concept 1 contemplates Port transformation to one of the largest centers for motor and sailing yacht Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul (MRO) and marine industrial services along the Eastern Seaboard.  Ship lift facilities with related open air and high bay (covered) service areas are centrally positioned with specialized buildings for sailing yacht mast maintenance and other functions arrayed around the perimeter.  New in-water berths supporting wet slip MRO activities and vessel berthing are envisioned. 

Marine industrial warehouses with commercial storefronts line North 2nd Street and parcels surrounding the central yacht MRO.  These large and small unit clusters host electronics businesses, hydraulics companies, engine repair, shaft and propeller works, sail makers, technology, research, storage, and a variety of other marine related businesses.  A new marine industries education center is introduced adjacent to the existing silos.  This facility is integrated with a crew support and amenities zone.

Harbour Pointe Park is renewed to host park and recreational boating features.  An anchor tenant of this zone is the expanded Reef Restoration and Marine Ecology Education Center.  This facility will include extension programs from Indian River State College and other institutions of higher learning.  Park facilities and needed storm water recharge zones are configured to form greenways reaching back into the Lincoln Park Community, Fisherman’s Wharf, and the Downtown Ft. Pierce Waterfront.

The following poster is the first in an eight poster series. The text is split in 3 columns with a larger header at the top. The graphic is a navy blue background with a light blue triangle shape in the upper left corner and an orange triangle shape in the lower right corner.www.planportFP.com is located in the top left. St. Lucie County, Atkins and Moffatt & Nichol logo are placed in the lower left corner. The text reads as follows: For the header: Port of Fort Pierce Master Plan: 2020 Update How should the port evolve to embrace community economic and social opportunities?  This is the central question posed by St. Lucie County and its consultants as we embark on the update of the Port of Fort Pierce Master Plan. Join us in this important conversation about the future of your Port!  The first column states Project Overview The Port of Fort Pierce is one of Florida’s 14 deepwater seaports. Initially created as a maritime freight and logistics center for the movement of agricultural products and other cargos from the Treasure Coast, today’s Port of Fort Pierce functions as a hybrid of working waterfront elements and community infrastructure. It is unlike most of the more traditional cargo and cruise dominant seaports in Florida. Every five years, Florida Seaports are required to update their long-range master plan to identify, guide, and coordinate port development and ensure alignment with local comprehensive planning. This master plan update—along with ongoing investment in the new Derecktor Shipyard —marks an important milestone for the Port and its working waterfront. The Port of Fort Pierce is poised for a renaissance that holds potential to grow new economic and other beneficial impacts for the residents of St. Lucie County and the surrounding region. Charting a roadmap forward for the Port to achieve these ends is critical. An image of the port is located at the bottom of this column. At the top of column two are two additional photos of the port. The second column states Team and Schedule The Port of Fort Pierce Master Plan is an initiative sponsored by St. Lucie County.  The County has retained the maritime and community planning expertise of Atkins and Moffatt & Nichol to lead the effort.   The Plan update commenced in May and will continue throughout the summer, with draft and final plans readied in September. The effort includes two public engagement sessions, the first of which was held between June 15 and July 12.  Session 2 is ongoing, with meetings scheduled and planning materials available for community review until August 9.  Through the project website— www.planportFP.com—community members can learn more about the project, review results from Public Engagement Session 1, evaluate early project concepts for the Port, and sign-up for project email blasts.  Due to health and safety issues arising from COVID-19, in-person community meetups have been replaced with online live streaming events.   The third column states Engagement Session Two Your involvement is critical to the success of this planning effort. The purpose of this second (of two) public engagement session is to evaluate the Team’s success in translating community priorities into compelling alternative visions for the Port. This poster series walks you through the overall project area, presents results of our first community survey, and showcases three initial planning visions for the Port area.  We encourage you to complete our project survey available at  www.planportFP.com using your computer or smartphone.  We also have printed survey forms at each “gallery” location to record your responses. Please complete only one survey per person.

The following poster is the second in an eight poster series. In the middle of the poster is a graphic of the regional context. The graphic is a navy blue background with a light blue triangle shape in the upper left corner and an orange triangle shape in the lower right corner.www.planportFP.com is located in the top left. St. Lucie County, Atkins and Moffatt & Nichol logo are placed in the lower left corner. The text reads as follows: The Port of Fort Pierce Today The Port of Fort Pierce Project Study Area consists of approximately 255 acres and is the primary zone area of study under the Master Plan Update (Red Area).

Several key themes were apparent from both groups. WHAT WE HAVE HEARD? 95% of survey respondents indicated the Port could become both an improved strategic economic asset and catalyst for helping better Downtown, the waterfront, and surrounding communities.   80% agreed or strongly agreed that community investment and revitalization is a priority.  Similar percentages supported the statements “a strong economy was the best way to strengthen the community” and “both public and private sector investment in commerce enabling jobs and infrastructure” was needed. 79% of respondents agreed or strongly agreed future land uses at the Port should include “Marine technology, manufacturing, maintenance, repair, and related uses” Similar numbers supported “mega yacht, marina and boating facilities comprising upland and/or in-water areas” and “education, research, and training/apprenticeship facilities.” To the right of these statistics are a series of icon graphics that show the overall metrics of the last public work session. 250 online meeting participants 395 survey participants 2,956 website views 300 comments Economic development, small town charm, recreation and marine activity were the most frequently used terms/ phrases expressed in the survey comment sections from all participants.
