Much of Palmetto Bay's early successes are due to proper planning. I am posting links to some of these early plans for you, the readers and concerned residents, to follow and monitor the progress of the 2015 Strategic Plan process. There is much more material, and I will update this reference post as material comes to my attention or becomes available online. I will keep these materials indexed under the label of "Strategic Plan."
PALMETTO BAY STORMWATER MASTER PLAN: Soon after Village incorporation in 2002, Palmetto Bay enlisted the expertise of engineers, surveyors, and contractors for the purpose of establishing a “Stormwater Master Plan.”
This plan was developed to identify low-lying areas within our municipal boundaries, in order to systematically pursue appropriate opportunities to protect surface-water quality and to reduce flooding. The Master Plan continues to be used as a blueprint that ensures proper repairs are being made, and that storm drains are being installed and maintained as needed.
