Background Discussion

On June 21, 2011, the Board of County Commissioners instructed staff to develop and administer a "Six Month Segway Tour Pilot Program at Coquina Beach All Purpose Trail, excluding Leffis Key" and bring recommendations back to the Board of County Commissioners for consideration.  Staff presented the results of the pilot program at the December 20, 2011, regularly scheduled Board meeting.  

Only one (1) company, Segs by the Sea, elected to participate in the pilot program.  All contractual obligations were met by Segs by the Sea and staff recommended the Board of County Commissioners grant them a five(5) year Franchise License Agreement.  The Board of County Commissioners approved the Agreement for five (5) years starting December 31, 2011, and ending December 30, 2016.

The Parks and Natural Resources Department is requesting Board of County Commissioners approval of Amendment 1 to the Franchise License Agreement  for Segway Tours at Coquina Beach with Segs by the Sea to provide for a five (5) year term with an option for a second five (5) year renewal if the parties mutually agree.   The duration of  Amendment 1 to the Franchise Agreement shall be December 31, 2016, through December 30, 2021.

The Agreement will be managed by the Parks and Natural Resources Department.
