Western Northlake Corridor Land Use Study Update
Back to Planning Projects
In 1998, Palm Beach County and the Cities of Palm Beach Gardens and West Palm
Beach adopted the Western Northlake Corridor Land Use Study (WNCLUS) in order to
provide guidance as to appropriate land uses within the Northlake Boulevard
area. The Study made a series of recommendations and resulted in an interlocal
agreement between the Cities and the County. Many of the recommendations have
been implemented, and the Study has served as a guide for land use and
development decisions in the area.
In 2005, the County and the Cities
decided that it is appropriate to update the Study. This is due to a
recommendation to reassess the need for commercial uses, substantial changes in
population and amount of potential non-residential development as well as other
changes in the Study area. This update will ensure that a relevant guide to land
use remains in the Western Northlake Corridor.
In 2008, a team comprised
of staff from Palm Beach County, the Indian Trail Improvement District, and the
cities of West Palm Beach and Palm Beach Gardens reinstated efforts to evaluate
changed conditions since 1999, and determine need and supply of office and
commercial space within the area of study. The team has agreed that the
recommendations in the original study remain valid.
