Morikami Conceptual Master Plan Approved
In a unanimous vote of the County Commissioners on September 9, 2014 the Conceptual Master Plan for the Morikami Museum and Gardens was approved. Alliance President Bob Schulbaum and Executive Vice President Lori Vinikoor are pictured meeting with Eric Call, Director of Palm Beach County Parks and recreation (photo center). During the meeting, future plans for the Morikami were reviewed which include expanded museum gallery and collection space, a ryokan (Japanese Inn and restaurant), artisan village, expanded bonsai and special event areas, expanded gardens, lakes and entryways.
A Master Plan for the Morikami was originally proposed in the 1970's and evolved throughout the '80's and '90's. The Alliance provided input for the most recent conceptual plan and will follow the project which will continue to take form in the years to come. The Alliance has requested that the County consider affordable pricing for local residents to have the opportunity to enjoy the amenities of what is expected to be a 5 star Inn including spa-type facilities.
Festivals, events, and cultural activities can be enjoyed throughout the year. For more information on hours and admission to the Morikami go to www.morikami.org
