Rep Chip LaMarca presented a check to the Fort Lauderdale City Commission from the state in the amount of $500,000 for the design costs of the Galt Ocean Drive Renovation. We thank Rep Chip LaMarca for his efforts to get this funding in the 2023 state budget, and to keep it there. We appreciate all that Chip has done for us on the Galt Mile and this is just one more example of his commitment to our neighborhood.
We also express our appreciation for the support given to this project by Commissioner John C. Herbst and former Commissioner Heather Moraitis. Both played keys roles in getting this project underway and especially the funding of the project.
We look forward to seeing the design plans and turning over the first shovel of dirt to improve the Galt Ocean Drive.
