About our Village

 

The Village of Palmetto Bay is a vibrant community of more than 23,000 residents who enjoy its beautiful surroundings and family-oriented atmosphere. Situated immediately west of beautiful Biscayne Bay, Palmetto Bay offers unique recreational opportunities and bay access for all to enjoy. Additionally, the Village is home to excellent public schools -- all of which have annually earned the grade “A” under the State of Florida’s A+ Plan -- as well as exceptional private schools.

Village residents enjoy the benefits of an extensive park system composed of six park facilities offering myriad opportunities ranging from active to passive, recreation to preservation, ground activities, to water recreation, and a soon to be constructed neighborhood library. Its commercial corridor along South Dixie Highway is easily and quickly accessible from any location within Village limits. Restaurants, lodging, retail services, and shopping venues -- from major chains to family-owned enterprises -- are among the Village's commercial base.

Incorporated on Sept. 10, 2002, the Village of Palmetto Bay is the 33rd municipality in Miami-Dade County. The Village extends from the centerline of SW 136 Street, south to the centerline of SW 184 Street; expanding west to the centerline of South Dixie Highway, including the center "commercial island," and east to Biscayne Bay.

The Village celebrates its 10th anniversary as a duly incorporated municipality in Sept. 2012. In this short span of time, the Village has succeeded in building community character by creating a distinct community identity through the installation of new street signs and completing traffic & beautification projects, improving customer service, and facilitating access to government services (via WBAY Gov't Access TV (Comcast Channel 77 / ATT U-verse Channel 99), a robust website, and successful social media platforms), building a better police force, and improving and expanding Village park facilities for the enjoyment of all residents -- dubbing us the "Village of Parks."
