About our Village

Welcome to Palmetto Bay

The Village of Palmetto Bay is a vibrant community of more than 24,000 residents who enjoy beautiful surroundings and a family-oriented atmosphere. Situated on the shores of Biscayne Bay, Palmetto Bay offers quick access to unique recreational opportunities and amazing bay vistas. 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. It is also home to a wide range of exceptional private primary and secondary educational institutions. Please view this video, entitled "Spirit of Incorporation," for a comprehensive overview of the Village.

Village residents enjoy the benefits of an extensive park system composed of five Village parks and two county facilities.  Our parks offer recreational opportunities ranging from active to passive with an array of programs & activities, and even a neighborhood library.  The 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. Please visit our Village Maps page to get your bearings.

In 2012, Palmetto Bay celebrated its 10th anniversary as a duly incorporated municipality.  Since,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."
