Background Discussion

On June 10, 2015, the Southwest Florida Water Management District (SWFWMD) grant agreement 15CS0000001 was executed for the Hidden Harbour Habitat Restoration in the amount of $609,500.  The funding is to be used for mitigation activities including design, permitting, construction, and engineering services for habitat enhancement of approximately 90 acres. 

Amendment # 1 reduces the grant award $184,067.30 to a new amount of $425,432.70, due to changes and solidification in the scope of the project as determined by Parks & Natural Resources and SWFWMD staff.  The completion date is being extended to December 31, 2017.

A future agreement with SWFWMD is planned for continued maintenance of the property.

Adoption of Budget Resolution B-17-015 is being requested.
