Role:

In August of 2015, the Village of North Palm Beach, in collaboration with the Palm Beach Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO), contracted with the Treasure Coast Regional Planning Council (TCRPC) to study ways to improve mobility, quality of life, and economic vitality of the Village. In its FY 2016 Council Goals and Objectives, the Village articulated Goal 5 which states, “Develop a master plan for economic development in our business districts and community development in our neighborhoods.” Specifics of this Goal include holding a public charrette, review of the Village Comprehensive Plan and Land Development Regulations, preparation of a market study and economic strategies, develop a master plan with specific recommendations and renderings, and complete the plan by FY 2016.

Study Area

The project area for the Village of North Palm Beach Master Plan is focused on, but not limited to, all properties within the Village of North Palm Beach municipal boundaries, the US-1 and Northlake Boulevard corridors, as well as areas outside the Village where the analysis would benefi t the master planning effort.

Process

In early 2016, the Treasure Coast Regional Planning Council conducted a signifi cant public involvement process, including a week-long economic development and urban design charrette to assist the Village in accomplishing its goals. From Saturday, January 30, 2016, through Friday, February 5, 2016, the TCRPC team worked with over 150 citizens, elected officials, business owners, and staff in forging a strategy for re-development and economic growth in the Village of North Palm Beach. Working together, the team and the public created a master plan that represents the aspirations for the village’s waterfront, commercial corridors, and neighborhoods.
