Mastering Port Everglades ...

Another Study: Broward's Port Everglades has retained DMJM Harris, a consultant in engineering/planning/economic analysis, to whip up a five-year Master Plan, and 10- and 20-year Vision Plans. Port Director Phillip C. Allen says those will address changes since 2001, when Port Everglades presented its original 2020 Vision Master Plan. The firm will incorporate post-9/11 aspects with potential vision impact. Nitty-gritty from a current study of petroleum facilities by Purvin & Gertz, Inc. will wrap in the Master Plan, due in Spring of 2007, with public input invited. Port Everglades, a gateway for international trade and cruises, is the winter homeport for Cunard’s Queen Mary 2. It ranks among the nation's fastest growing container ports, according to the PIERS import/export database. Port Everglades generates $2.87 billion annually. For details, call 954-523-3404.
