The Palm Beach Civic Association opposes the creation of a new Okeechobee Business District in West Palm Beach. 

The Okeechobee corridor is a principal route for getting on and off the island of Palm Beach. At all hours of the day and night, bumper-to-bumper traffic creates unbearable conditions for residents of Palm Beach and West Palm Beach, and visitors from surrounding communities. The Okeechobee corridor is a principal route for getting on and off the island of Palm Beach.

We believe the traffic woes on Okeechobee Blvd. will only get worse if a new business district is created. In spite of a West Palm Beach program to improve the corridor, congestion and grid lock are sure to become the order of the day.
