Sustainable Development

What do we mean by sustainable development? What is smart growth for PBC?

Sustainable Palm Beach County defines sustainability as a balance of environmental protections and economic development that allows PBC residents to continue to enjoy the quality of life that keeps us here — and ensures that that we don’t destroy that quality of life for the next generation.

We seek smart growth policies to slow the consumption of land by removing, or reducing, the impact of the automobile. In neighboring counties to our South, residents spend their days gridlocked in traffic. That is not a future that we want for PBC.
