Our village as been incorporated since 1957, just one year after the club first opened its doors. For sixty years, we have embodied the true meaning of community and camaraderie. As a village born out of the love of our state's most treasured sport, we may also hold a special place in history.
This month I have been meeting with historic preservation officials from Palm Beach County to pursue official historic designation for the Village or the areas around it. As a municipality created around the game of golf, we may be worthy of state designation. While this would be an honor, I am also pursuing this for more pragmatic purposes as well.
More than a new plaque in the area, official historic designation would afford us more control over the future of the area. If the state designates portions in or around the Village as historic, it would change the rules for future development and afford us more control over future decisions.
For now, this is all in the early stages, but it promises to be an interesting discussion as it progresses.
As always, my door is always open if you have any questions or concerns (or compliments) on this or any other topics.
