Construction of the Heart of Cocoa Meeting Room
The Heart of Cocoa Meeting Room will be constructed on Factory Street in Cocoa for the community to use for group meetings or small gatherings of community leaders.  The construction began in March 2018 and is expected to be completed by September 2018.

Construction of the Riverfront Connector
The Riverfront Connector is a continuous sidewalk that will connect the sidewalk in front of the Whitley Bay Marina to Lee Wenner Park.  The sidewalk will connect under SR520 to the Lee Wenner Park sidewalk so residents and visitors can safely walk to Cocoa Village without crossing the busy SR520 east and west roadways.  The project began in March 2018 and is expected to be completed by September 2018.

Stone Street Streetscape Project

In the Diamond Square Community, Stone Street one of the main roads traveled by the residents in that community.  The City of Cocoa committed to making improvements to the roadway and soon, the project will be underway.

The Stone Street Streetscape Project will begin on May 21, 2018 and is scheduled for completion in November 2018.  The improvements along the stretch of Stone Street from the railroad tracks to Fiske Blvd. will include new curb, gutters, pavement, sidewalk, landscaping and improvements to make the area safer for pedestrians and cyclists. 

The project will be completed in phases with the curb/gutter and sidewalks installed and then the roadway paving and landscape installation.  We appreciate the community's patience during this construction as we will have lane closures and minor detours to make traveling through the area safer for all.

For more information on the project, please contact Charlene Neuterman, City of Cocoa Project Manager, at 321-433-8773 or cneuterman@cocoafl.org.
