Port Canaveral, FL – Canaveral Port Authority (CPA) has scheduled a meeting to roll out the Port's Strategic Master Plan draft.  The community session is scheduled to begin at 10:00 a.m. on Monday, October 16th in the Commissioners' Meeting Room at the Port's Maritime Center.  Bermello Ajamil & Partners, consultants who prepared the plan for the CPA, will provide an overview of the master plan draft, and Port staff will be on-hand for breakout sessions to answer questions on details of the plan draft.
"This strategic plan has been in development for nearly two years.  It's an important blueprint for the Port's future that our community has helped guide with their input.  The master plan, as required by Florida statute, is a ten-year look ahead for the Port as we continue to grow our future while supporting the foundations of our success," said Diane Luensmann, the Port's senior director government and strategic communications.
