Public workshop tonight at City Hall.

The City of Lake Worth’s Historic Resource Preservation Board (HRPB) “Design Guidelines Workshop” will be held tonight at 6:00.

This meeting is open to the public and “Worth Noting”.
“The HRPB together with City staff, and Project Consultant, Treasure Coast Regional Planning Council, would like to invite residents, property owners, and interested parties to a special workshop to discuss the development of the City’s Historic Preservation Design Guidelines.”

In December 2017, the City Commission adopted significant changes to the Land Development Regulations regarding Historic Preservation (Ordinance 2017-27).

A key companion to this Ordinance is the creation of design guidelines to assist property owners with maintaining, repairing, and updating their historic properties. Historic preservation is an established part of city planning in Lake Worth.
     Over the past decades, the community has initiated preservation practices to protect the many historic cottages, residences, and commercial buildings that serve as a tangible link to our City’s shared history.
     While the City remains dynamic and change continues to occur in response to varying community goals and economic conditions, preserving our unique heritage remains a primary goal of the community.
