Thinking about relocating your business to North Palm Beach?  Have you checked to be sure your location has the proper zoning and parking requirements before you sign a lease or purchase the building?  In an effort to better serve the local business community, the Village Council developed a tool to help businesses maneuver through various procedures and applications. NPB Biz is a one-stop shop to most business-related matters, and has an experienced staff member serving as a Business Liaison, assisting Village businesses on a one-on-one basis.

IMPORTANT: Before you sign a lease or buy property for business

Before making a financial commitment to open a business, it is very important to check with the Village Business Liaison to find out if their are any conditions that might affect your business or your ability to get permitted to open shop. Requirements may vary by location, type of business, and other issues such as grease traps for food-related businesses, and/or fire and safety requirements. If you lease or buy in a location, then find out about restrictions afterward, it could be a very expensive mistake.

Business Liaison

The Village Business Liaison is dedicated to helping the business community to navigate Village processes and regulations. Business owners looking to move into the Village of North Palm Beach, or existing businesses that may be looking to expand or relocate will be provided a preliminary meeting to ensure your vision has the proper conditions.

To contact the Business Liaison, call Community Development Director Caryn Gardner-Young at (561) 841-3369 or send an email to
