Announcements


COVID-19

The City is currently closed due to the COVID-19 Emergency, except to provide essential services (which presents a series of challenges and demands on City operations and available resources). While we may accept your application or resubmittal, due to the COVID-19 Emergency review of applications is likely to take longer than normal, and we are unable at this time to provide a timeline regarding when comments will be issued and/or (where applicable) when a PAR (including Preliminary, Compliance and Administrative IDA applications) meeting will be held. Further, not all reviewers may be available to review your project until after all offices have reopened. Please note while City staff will communicate with external reviewers (Lake Worth Drainage District, Florida Power and Light, etc.) to obtain their respective review and comments, it is the applicant’s responsibility to ensure that all external reviewer comments are provided to the assigned planner for each submittal review. Additionally, while the City may accept your application or resubmittal at this time, by submitting an application or resubmittal, you agree to pay the required amount of fees and deposit once the COVID-19 Emergency has ended (and failure to remit the required fees and deposit will result in the application being deemed incomplete, and therefore in ceasing of review of the application, return of the application and closure of the matter). Lastly, the City cannot guarantee when the application will be scheduled for any public hearings that may be required in connection with the application (and the City may, as a direct result of the COVID-19 Emergency, be required to schedule such public hearings beyond time periods provided by law).

Website Renovation

In an effort to ensure that the City's website is accessible to everyone, including those who use assistive devices, all documents and forms are being reviewed and updated to meet accessibility standards. More information is available on the Website Renovation page. If you are unable to locate the documents you need, please either fill out a Public Records Request form or call the Development Service's Office at 561-393-7789.
