The Village is holding a series of monthly citizen workshops to plan for future business development on U.S. Highway 1 and on Northlake Boulevard.

At the meetings, consultants are proposing changes to the Village Code of Ordinances that are intended to encourage private sector investment in local business properties.

If the proposed changes are implemented, they will have a significant impact on the look and design of commercial buildings and landscaping, potentially resulting in new business development, as well as increased shopping, dining and entertainment experiences within North Palm Beach.

Updates to the Code are a major component of the Citizen’s Master Plan, which the Council approved in October 2016.

Key recommendations of the Master Plan include:

  • Redefining U.S. Highway 1
  • Rewriting building codes based on design, rather than usage
  • Improving Prosperity Farms Road
  • Prioritizing redevelopment areas

There is a lot involved in updating the rules of property redevelopment, so each meeting covers different aspects of the proposed Code changes, such as plans for the Twin City Mall site, New zoning rules for the Camelot Inn, the Crystal Cove business complex and the IHOP restaurant.

There also are guided discussions about off-street parking, building height, outdoor seating regulations and businesses on the north side of Northlake Boulevard.

Public involvement is critically important to the redevelopment process and to the future of the Village life and property values, so residents are strongly encouraged to attend and to get involved.

Meetings begin at 6:30 p.m. in the Council Chambers unless otherwise noted.

Dates of the last two meetings are:

  • June 6 (Tentative), Village Hall Council Chambers, 501 US Highway 1, NPB
