2nd Meeting

On Monday, May 8, 2017, the Boca Raton City Council and the Greater Boca Raton Beach and Parks District (GBRBPD) held a joint public meeting to discuss the now defunct 27 hole Ocean Breeze Golf Course located at 5801 NW Second Avenue. The GBRBPD provided information and a presentation to the City Council and the public about its plans to purchase and renovate the Ocean Breeze Course. The GBRBPD is seeking financing from the City through a bond issue in the amount of 24 million dollars to purchase the property. (As a special district, the GBRBPD is not authorized by state statutes to issue bonds. )


Mayor Susan Haynie requested additional information from the GBRBPD so the Council could make a decision on the amount of funding, but City Council members agreed that they would like to keep the land as a golf course in Boca Raton. The Mayor directed City staff to begin drawing up an interlocal agreement between the agencies.


At a City Council meeting on Tuesday, May 9, the Council again reiterated its interest in partnering with the District to purchase the Golf Course, but indicated they were waiting on additional information before a final decision on the amount could be made. City Manger Leif Ahnell discussed the different bond financing options and the timing of the process.
