Lead Agency: Palmetto Bay Parks and Recreation
Palmetto Bay developed its action plan through a comprehensive look at surveys, resident experience and the expertise of local leaders. The plan relies on metrics and measurements to monitor implementation goals, and focuses on respect and social inclusion, developing more accessible, affordable housing, and providing more accessible outdoor green spaces for residents.
Action Plan Highlights
Outdoor SpacesCreate additional green open spaces and outdoor gathering areas by providing incentives for developers, with a goal to increase the number of developers that utilize this incentive by 50.
HousingCreate more accessible housing by requiring that universal design principles be used in all new construction of multifamily housing.
Respect and InclusionEncourage age diversity on all task forces and committees to include members over 55 and under 35.
