Today, EVERY MONDAY, is the Lake Worth Very Very Special Monday Collector Print Edition (LWVVSMCPE)!

The big news today in the Post’s LWVVSMCPE isn’t by Lake Worth’s beat reporter.

The story with the biggest impact for many years to come on the future of our little City is by reporter Wayne Washington (check back later for link to article). If you’ve been following the latest developments on County “impact fees you know this is a very big deal for future City budgets and the changes sought by Lake Worth Mayor Pam Triolo:

These are fees developers, builders, etc., have to pay to move forward with a project. The amount of money these developers, et al., had to pay was not insignificant — dollars that were then sent by the County to communities, some far out west near the Everglades — and the City of Lake Worth received just pennies on the dollar in return.

The other big development (pardon the pun) is the news blackout on the Meritage Homes “Lake Cove” housing project is now over. It’s reported on page B3 today, a short piece about this exciting new project. However, several significant points were left out, e.g., the vote was unanimous at the City Commission, access points to the site, and how all this ties in with the Blueway Trail.

NOTE: The Posts news blackout remains in place, not reporting about the Blueway Trail project.

About the LWVVSMCPE: Did you know there are only six Special Cities in Palm Beach County? And Delray Beach IS NOT one of them.

But the City of Lake Worth is a Special City.
Every Monday!

“IN YOUR COMMUNITY”. To contact the reporter use this link.
Post reporter Lulu Ramadan covers the stodgy Delray Beach beat. That city has been eclipsed by Boynton Beach, Palm Beach Gardens, West Palm Beach, Lake Worth, the Town of Jupiter and Village of Wellington as well.

Why is the City of Lake Worth in ascendance?

Do you remember the “KEEPSAKE” published by the Post that was all the rage in Palm Beach County?

“Lake Worth is truly the place ‘where the tropics begin’ and the fun never ends.”
“Lake Worth is a dynamic, multi-cultural city with a strong social and environmental consciousness. People are drawn to the city by its independent character, acceptance of different cultures”. . .
