The Town of Palm Beach has a long history of strategic planning. Starting in 1929 with The Plan of Palm Beach, the Town has always been interested in ensuring its offerings were in line with expectations of the community and the needs of the future. The Town published a formal Strategic Plan in 2003, updated it in 2012 and now plans to release the Strategic Plan’s latest update in 2023.
Community engagement is an important contributor to the development of a strategic plan. In addition to the community survey conducted this summer, the Town will conduct focus groups in January 2023. The Town is seeking volunteers to participate. Participation will be limited, and participants will be selected to mirror the demographics of the Town. On the morning of January 5, a focus group will be held at the Mandel Recreation Department and on the morning of January 11, a focus group will be held at South Fire. Please complete the online volunteer form for consideration before December 9, 2022.
