During a recent meeting, the Hollywood City Commission approved Phase One funding of $70 million for the GO Bond Projects. The Phase Two issuance of $90 million is planned for October 2021 and will fund the police headquarters, the tidal flooding projects, and the Orangebrook revitalization project. The biggest project, the police headquarters, is now in the planning stages.
The initial $70 million will fund projects such as gateway and neighborhood monument signs, traffic controls, park improvements, and fire equipment and technology. Planning, request for quotes (RFQs), and site designs for a number of projects are currently in the works. Once completed, the city can move forward on contracting, permitting, and construction.
The GO Bond was approved by voters on March 12 and the 15 member GO Bond Oversight Advisory Committee was seated in May. The committee will monitor the implementation of GO Bond projects and make recommendations in consultation with city staff to the city commission.
