Any Palm Beach County official who votes to leave the Treasure Coast Regional Planning Council in favor of the South Florida Council will lose my vote. TCRPC is quite possibly the most respected planning council in the entire country and has done a world of good to keep PBC from “Browardizing”. It has guided the redevelopment and revitalization of Delray Beach, among its many success stories. Many of its staff (past and current) helped administer the West Palm Beach downtown revitalization.
Any advocate for more livable, walkable communities should support staying with TCRPC and strongly object to moving councils. I suggest you email every County Commissioner. The email is listed under the “Contact” link of the blog.
