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. Located on the shores of Biscayne Bay, our Village offers quick access to unique recreational opportunities and amazing bay vistas. Palmetto Bay is also home to excellent public schools, including a wide range of top-notch private primary and secondary educational institutions.
Incorporated on September 10, 2002, our Village has always been a first-choice community for raising families and building businesses. Palmetto Bay has established an enviable balance between quality living and quality growth, which is maintained through long-term planning, fiscal responsibility, community involvement, responsible leadership, respect for the environment, and strong public and private support for business development.
With its unique blend of old Florida charm and urban sophistication, Palmetto Bay reflects the best of South Florida's past, present and future!
The Village of Palmetto Bay boundaries extend south from the centerline of SW 136 Street 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 offerings, including 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 shaped its unique character and identity by designing and installing customized street signs; completing many traffic and beautification projects; improving customer service; building a solid policing unit; expanding communication with our residents through social media, a comprehensive website, and a public access TV channel (WBAY); and improving our Village park facilities, recreational events, and programs to the extent that Palmetto Bay is now known as the "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 first statewide Platinum LEED-certified Village Hall!
