The work, which will be done by Aktiv Construction, includes the installation of a new fence to improve aesthetics of the property. The project is funded by the 2019 Solid Waste Authority Blighted Property Grant.

 

 

City of Delray Beach Parks and Recreation staff will begin the removal of the existing fence on June 17, 2020, as part of Phase I. During Phase II, Aktiv Construction will be creating 1 by 1 column posts every 24 feet starting from S.W. 6th Street to S.W. 10th Street. In August, Phase 3 will involve the installation of the aluminum fence between each column.

 

In 1902, the Ladies Improvement Association of the town of Linton (incorporated as Delray in 1911), was given five acres of land by the Henry Flagler’s Model Land Company to be used for a cemetery. The lot was deeded to the City in 1914. The name was changed in 1995 to Delray Beach Memorial Gardens (formerly known as Pine Ridge Cemetery) and is located at S.W. 8th Avenue and S.W. 10th Street.

 

If you have any questions regarding the project, please contact Patrick Adolphe, Housing Rehabilitation Specialist, at (561) 243-7224 or Ferline Mesidort, Neighborhood Services Administrator at (561) 243-7282.
