Lake Worth Planning & Zoning meeting tonight: Three interesting items.

All of the items on the agenda tonight are in the City’s Park of Commerce. Will briefly look at just one of those (see below)

The first item on the agenda is an empty lot east of the Palm Beach Mobile Home Park on Boutwell Rd. between 2nd Ave. South and 7th Ave. South:

The applicant has provided open storage at her property on Lantana Road for many years. The Lantana property is being sold and must immediately move such storage out. Many of the applicants’ customers live in Lake Worth and the location in the Industrial Park of Commerce zoning district is suitable for such use. 


Ms. Jennifer Morton and Mr. Steve Pickett on behalf of, Mrs. Lisa Silva (“Applicant”), proposes that the current vacant lot, located at 2201 & 2205 7th Avenue North (“Property”) be used as open storage that would serve to store and park shipping containers. The shipping containers will contain nonperishable goods such as: canned goods, clothing, shoes, bags, bicycles, and other non-hazardous items. These nonperishable goods will be sent to Haiti and to the local Haitian Community. The subject property was utilized as a mobile home park and had connections to the City’s utility systems. Thus, the applicant is now before the Board to request a conditional use permit. The applicant already has chain link fence installed along parts of the sides, the front and rear.
