Subject: [CPEO-BIF] Boynton Beach, Florida transit hub
Transit hub vital to Boynton's plan to transform downtown
Board discloses $185,000 proposal to transform downtown

Boynton Beach

Community Redevelopment Agency board members revealed Tuesday the 
framework they hope will transform downtown from languished to vibrant.

Their plan covers 746 acres between Interstate 95 and Federal Highway 
from Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard to just south of Ocean Avenue. It 
would guide redevelopment through 2020.

The $185,000 plan calls for a transit station on Federal Highway between 
Boynton Beach Boulevard and Ocean Avenue that would serve as a 
"catalyst" for redevelopment. It is one of several sites proposed for 
City Hall's relocation.


In other business, CRA board members also moved forward with a 
brownfield designation that would make environmentally contaminated 
properties eligible for federal money for cleanups. Board members, 
however, are only recommending commercial and industrial properties in 
the CRA district be designated. They are also including the proposed 
Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard redevelopment project and the Ocean 
Breeze affordable housing project.
