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 and it is also home to a wide range of exceptional private primary and secondary educational institutions.
Palmetto Bay was incorporated on September 10, 2002. Our village is confident in its growing role as a first choice community for raising families and building businesses.
With its unique blend of rural, old Florida charm, and a urban sophistication, this fast growing village has established an enviable balance between quality living and quality growth. That balance is carefully maintained through long-term planning and fiscal responsibility, community involvement, responsible leadership, respect for the environment and strong public and private support for business development.
Palmetto Bay reflects the best of South Florida's past, present and future!
Village BoundariesThe Village of Palmetto Bay boundaries extend 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.
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 and 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.
Palmetto Bay has rightfully become a leader in many facets of community building. The Village has succeeded in building community character by creating a distinct community identity by designing and installing its own unique street signs, completing many traffic and beautification projects, improving customer service, building a solid policing unit, expanding the channels of communications with our residents through social media, a comprehensive website and a public access TV channel (WBAY), and improving our Village park facilities and recreational events and programs to the extent that Palmetto Bay is now known as "Village of Parks." Palmetto Bay has also led the way in green initiatives, building the first county-wide LEED-certified park building at Coral Reef Park, followed by the very first statewide Platinum LEED-certified Village Hall!
