At the March 13, 2018 Municipal Election, Highland Beach voters will be asked to decide on funding the construction of a Streetscape Improvement Project at a not-to-exceed cost of $2,100,000.     

The project which would be paid for using existing Town reserves is expected to include the following basic components:

 

Replacement of the asphalt walk path with a decorative aggregate (shell) concrete walk path.

Upgrade monument signage at the north and south entry points of the Town.

Upgraded street signage (signs, signposts, and street name signs).

Relocation of trash receptacles.

ADA Standards at side street crosswalks.

Upgrade landscaping at focal points along the walkways

 

No New Taxes… The Town Commission plans to self-fund this project with existing reserve funds via an internal loan.  The internal loan would be repaid over the next 10 years with proceeds from Palm Beach County Infrastructure Surtax Program.  Please note that this amount is derived from an opinion of probable cost based on selections by the Citizen’s Streetscape Committee; the final cost and features will ultimately be determined during the project’s design phase. There will be upcoming opportunities for residents to provide input during the design phase of the project.

 

Please continue to visit the Town’s website for upcoming Public Meetings.  If you have any questions regarding this project, please do not hesitate to contact Town Hall at 561-278-4548.
