Comment on the former Greenies Site

After nearly two years of community meetings, outreach and planning, we have a vision for this
iconic site in Ocean View. You told us what you wanted out of this space along W. Ocean View
Avenue and this two-phase redevelopment plan will get us there.

Under Phase 1, the dune line will be reestablished in its proper
place to provide natural coastal protection against storm surge and high waves, prevent or
reduce coastal flooding and structural damage, and provide important ecological habitat. Upon
completion, an extension of the walkway at Ocean View Beach Park behind the dune will be
installed along with a new ADA-accessible beach access point over the new dune. Parking
spaces will be added as an extension to the current parking lot with a space for food trucks
connecting to the new parking lot. Finally, a proposed turf area will be installed that can be
programmed later.

The second phase proposes two options, both of which would occur to the
west of 1st View Street and build off the work established in Phase I. · Option 1: a one-story
waterfront restaurant with outdoor and rooftop dining. · Option 2: a waterfront restaurant with
outdoor dining is still proposed, but with a bigger footprint.

With both options, flexibility is built in
to ensure the future needs of the community can be met. You can still let us know your thoughts
on this plan by contacting the Department of Planning at 757-664-4752 or by email:
