Loxahatchee / Loxahatchee Groves

As a result of a strong incorporation effort from 2003-2006, the Town of Loxahatchee Groves became Palm Beach County’s newest municipality with it's incorporation on November 1, 2006. The Town joins as the 38th municipality in Palm Beach County. The first election to serve on the Town Council was held on March 13, 2007. The Town Council  consists of 5 Council members led by a Mayor and Vice Mayor.

As a Town, the residents and landowners have gained great advantages that were not available as an unincoporated community. The Town now has the ability to control and have a meaningful voice in determining the future use of the undeveloped properties within the historic boundaries. This was the key issue that drove the incorporation initiative. The efforts and strides the Town has taken to support the removal of the E-Road/140th Thoroughfare is a shining example of what an incorporated Town can achieve. The Town now has control over the revenues that is brought back into our community. For the current fiscal year, 2008-2009, the Town will bring over $1.1 Million in revenue back to the community. The millage rate of 1.5000 is the same as it was for the previous year. This is a great accomplishment because of the decline in the overall ad-valorem to be received by the Town. The net surplus in revenue to the Town (after you take out the Loxahatchee Groves property taxes) is over $710,000.

 

Swearing InThe Town Council is continuing to lay the foundation for the future. By implementing a
"Government Lite and Contract form of Government" the Town has been able to deliver services to the community in an efficient and cost effective manner. A Strategic Vision was adopted in July 2008 and its first Comprehensive Plan was approved by the Florida Department of Communities Affairs and is awaiting final adoption. One of the most important issues to the residents and landowners is the future of our roads. This is why the Town has completed the Master Road, Equestrian and Greenway Trail Plan (M.R.E.G.). The Town is required to plan the future road-way system as a part of the Comprehensive Plan.

 

As you can see, the Town Council has achieved a great deal for this community in its short history. These are just some of the many highlights and accomplishments it has completed since March 2007. As an incorporated Town, it has the power to preserve its rural character, plan for the future and deliver the most efficient and effective services to the residents and landowners of the Town of Loxahatchee Groves. With the the leadership of the Town Council and the community's active participation, this Town will continue to be a proud place everyone can call home.
