Next Public Meeting

Summer 2017

Overview

The City of West Palm Beach is embarking on a bold initiative to enhance the way people move in the City. The initiative and its supporting planning efforts will serve as a road map to create a modern, well-balanced transportation system that provides real mobility choices and creates great places. Real mobility choices mean that people have the option to walk, bike, ride, or drive in a safe and comfortable environment.

The initiative will be anchored by the development of a strategic vision for mobility and transportation in West Palm Beach as part of the Downtown Mobility Plan development process. Supporting the strategic vision will be several planning studies. For the first phase of planning, the supporting planning projects will include:

  • Downtown Mobility Plan - This project will identify specific projects to enhance mobility in Downtown West Palm Beach. It will also support the development of a downtown mobility fee for West Palm Beach. A mobility fee is a form of a transportation impact fee, which allows greater flexibility to fund a wider range of mobility projects that legally can not be funded by traditional transportation impact fees.
  • Okeechobee Boulevard Corridor Study - This study will identify near-term and long-term opportunities to enhance the Okeechobee Boulevard corridor from I-95 to Flagler Drive and the Lake Worth Lagoon.
  • Downtown Parking Management and Transportation Demand Management Plan - This study will analyze how city-owned parking lots, decks, and on-street parking space can be used to meet the City’s mobility and economic development goals.

This website will serve as the central place for project information, include meeting information, public input opportunities, and project documents. Check back regularly for the latest information. You can also sign up to receive regular updates using the contact form at the bottom of this page.

"West Palm Beach is committed to being a leader in shifting away from our dependence on cars and moving toward embracing innovative methods of moving people...The goal is to develop a transportation system that balances bicycle, pedestrian, transit and car travel in an affordable, sustainable and safe manner." - Mayor Jeri Muoio
