ROLE & PROGRAM:

In October 2017, the City of Palm Beach Gardens (City), in collaboration with the Treasure Coast Regional Planning Council (TCRPC), the South Florida Regional Planning Council (SFRPC), and the South Florida Regional Transportation Authority (SFRTA), held a public economic development and urban design charrette to study ways to improve mobility, quality of life, and economic vitality around the planned Tri-Rail Coastal Link station in Palm Beach Gardens. Funding for the charrette and TOD master plan was provided through a Federal Transit Administration (FTA) Pilot Planning Grant secured by the SFRTA for station area planning activities along the planned Tri-Rail Coastal Link Corridor. Funds were disbursed through the “South Florida Transit-Oriented Development” (SFTOD) grant program, and the City was selected as one of the recipients. Additional matching funding was provided by the City.
