Last night the Lake Worth City Commission sent a very strong message to our future: the Millennials.

And they also sent another strong message:

Western sprawl in Palm Beach County needs to stop — and it needs to stop now — our coastal cities in PBC need you: young, retirees, and everyone in between. We need your ideas. We need your enthusiasm. We need your experience and your knowledge.

Last night the City Commission voted unanimously for the Meritage Homes “Lake Cove” housing project. These are new homes (not townhouses or condos) EAST OF I-95, in the City of Lake Worth.

And from a recent letter published in The Palm Beach Post:

[U]rge prospective buyers to look into the abandoned home market for their families. In the city of Lake Worth, a charming, diverse and culturally rich area, there are hundreds of abandoned homes looking for someone to love them. Ask your Realtor to show you some.

Then-Mr. Omari Hardy has a message for you:

“There are so many people throughout this community, throughout Palm Beach County generally, who would probably love to make Lake Worth home. . . but who won’t give it the time of day because we’ve made it too hard for them to understand what makes Lake Worth a great place to live and that has to change.
     And that is why I am running. We have to put our best foot forward as a City.
     We have to close the gap between where we are and where we have the potential to be.”
