A Warm Welcome to Boynton Beach’s newly elected Mayor Steven Grant, and Commissioners Christina Romelus and Justin Katz who will join present commissioners Mack McCray and Joe Casello.
This 2016 election happened during a time when Boynton Beach’s downtown is changing rapidly. During a huge gathering at Sterling Village, they heard first hand the concerns of the citizens of the City and the adjoining community, Ocean Ridge. This is an especially pivotal time in the history of Boynton Beach and their decisions will impact us for years to come.

Maybe the District 4 voters think that the Downtown is not their concern. It most certainly is. A vibrant downtown will eventually lower your taxes. Yes, it is a CRA district for now and the CRA did not do its true function [...]
I believe that this is an accurate description of what Mayor Rodriquez did at last night’s (2/17) Commission/CRA workshop meeting and how it worked out. Don’t know whether this meeting was taped. It should have been. My District 3 Commissioner Steven Holtzman was present during the City staff and CRA presentations as they appeared on the agenda:
Become more aware of what will happen in the development process to establish downtown Boynton Beach as the focal point of Palm Beach County. How many of you know of it strategic location? Why hasn’t Boynton Beach’s downtown flourished. My thoughts are that former leaders and decision makers thought of Congress Ave as our “downtown”. [...]
On Monday night (1/31) in Boynton Beach the people came to our downtown. They did not see the blighted North Federal area. I believe they saw HOPE because a House of Reprsentative elected official had come to hear them.

WXEL community members put up a first rate effort to keep WXEL local at the Board of Education meeting in Miami December 17. About a dozen people from the WXEL community spoke at the meeting, urging the Board to deny the transfer because Classical South Florida is local in name only.
All arguments fell on deaf ears. [...]

Our CRA District is about one-third of our entire City. Information about our CRA should be readily available to us, the taxpayers of Boynton Beach. Why are the taxpayers not allowed to get the back-up information to the items on the CRA Board meetings agenda without CALLING the CRA office. Some of our taxpayers may not find it convenient [...]
