Among the shovel-toting dignitaries were members of the City Commission as well as J.L. Jamison, Jimmy Buffett’s stage manager. Jamison has been working as with the City regarding the sound design of the new facility.

The amphitheater, which will provide a gathering space for a variety of community events is expected to be completed in late September.
