The report was compiled by a group of more than 20 business executives, medical professionals and neighborhoods leaders assembled by Mayor Dean Trantalis. It was submitted to the city commission and will be discussed by the commission on Tuesday.

Trantalis said there isn’t a date set for reopening the city, but said they’re “getting close.” He said the city is working with other cities, Broward County, and surrounding counties on a uniform approach to reopening.

Parks would also open for passive activities, with individual groups of more than 10 prohibited. Face masks would be required except while exercising.

Boat ramps would reopen with one boat per launch allowed at a time. Boats would be required to stay 50 feet apart at all times, and gatherings of more than 10 people would be prohibited.
