ISHOF Rennovation has support of the Beach Advisory Board. The Redevelopment of ISHOF is the number 1 priority of the local advisory board and appears to have the unanimous support of the City Commission to move forward as a concept.

The city of Fort Lauderdale is preparing to go on a major spending spree in the latest effort to revamp the beach and ensure its future as a tourist destination.        

As much as $63 million could be spent on a high-style makeover that also broadens the beach's appeal beyond simply sand, surf and sun.
The expansion and remodeling of the International Swimming Hall of Fame is one possible target for aid. Other possibilities include a fishing pier, a more-impressive entrance to the beach, more public parking and a wider promenade on State Road A1A.
