A new shelter is being installed at the Channel 2 location in McTyre Park in Pembroke Park and the County is still in the negotiating process with the Miami Dade School Board (shared ownership) to replace the existing tower with a new one. The Pompano Beach Club site equipment room construction, antenna/dish and line installation and electrical is set for completion in September with project completion expected in October 2019.

A third-party consultant has determined that West Lake Park in Hollywood, and not the top of the Circ Hotel as preferred by the City of Hollywood is the best location for the West Hollywood location. Permitting is underway.
