For 40 years, Rickenbacker has been managed by a local family who, as good stewards of the public space, expanded waterfront access, supported conservation efforts, and increased revenue to the city.
Now they want to make upgrades to the aging Marina infrastructure, build a public waterfront park, and protect the living shoreline.
Miami residents must vote YES on the ballot initiative this November for the Rickenbacker proposal to even be considered.
Rickenbacker assembled a team of ecologists, economists, architects, conservationists, and recreational enthusiasts to develop a plan that conforms with the Virginia Key Master Plan to:
Expand and enhance public waterfront access
Create new passive recreation opportunities
Protect and expand the living shoreline
Provide a modernized, LEED-Gold certified marina facility
Our family has managed the Rickenbacker Marina since 1983, and in that time we’ve always aimed to embed Rickenbacker in the local community.
Whether coming together for fun, family events on the water or storm response efforts, Rickenbacker has always been about the community–and our new vision is no different.Learn More
