Palm Beach Gardens grapples with development

Nearly 30 projects are underway in Palm Beach Gardens as the economy improves, and officials are concerned about the impact of development on municipal services.

A workshop meeting for the City Council and administrators held last week considered the impact of an expected influx of residents on fire, rescue, parks and other services and amenities. The population is expected to swell to 60,000 from 50,000.

One of the biggest projects is Avenir, which if approved would bring 4,760 homes, offices, stores and schools on the western side of the city, and Briger, a 681-acre tract that has already been approved for residential, office and retail buildings, according to the Palm Beach Post.

At Thursday’s meeting, council officials made several proposals to address the development in the area, such as beefing up traffic safety and preventing commercially zoned areas from being converted into residential. [Palm Beach Post] – Jennifer White Karp
