West Boynton Community Plan

In 1995 the West Boynton Area Community Plan (WBACP) was approved by the City of Boynton Beach and accepted by the Palm Beach County Board of County Commissioners in 1995. This plan is frequently cited as the best example of a neighborhood plan. In November 1996, the Boynton Beach Turnpike Interchange Corridor Plan was added to specify design guidelines. The plan was revised and updated from 2009 to 2011 to incorporate the design criteria and specifications of the Turnpike Interchange Corridor Plan.

The plan was prepared by COBWRA with volunteer help from local land planners, Palm Beach County, and the City of Boynton Beach. In 2010, COBWRA formed a committee to update the plan and design guidelines. The revised plan notes those goals that have been achieved and makes the WBACP more consistent with county codes and the Florida State United Land Development Code (ULDC.) It is now called the West Boynton Area Community Plan and Design Guidelines and provides the goals and recommended standards for future development. This working project and will be reviewed once completed.

County regulations supersede this plan, and some of our recommendations exceed county requirements. The current committee is comprised of COBWRA members, land planners, representatives from the Palm Beach County Department of Planning, Zoning & Building, as well as a local architect and a representative from the City of Boynton Beach and includes two people who helped write the original plan.
