West Palm Beach Is Changing Clematis Street And Wants Your Input On The Project

West Palm Beach is seeking to embark on a series of design improvements to Clematis Street—and the city wants to hear your opinions. 

As part of phase one of the multi-phase Clematis Streetscape project, the city is outreaching to Clematis Street merchants for their input, as well as from other area merchants, residents, key stakeholders and the general public. 

Enhancements to Clematis Street may include shade and tree canopy improvements, better lighting, cafe seating, paving, clearly marked pedestrian crossings and more. 

The first phase of the project is expected to begin in May with a groundbreaking, and with construction ending in October. 

Anyone interested in providing feedback on Clematis Street can attend meetings on Jan. 20 and Jan. 22. 

The Jan. 20 meeting will be held at West Palm Beach GreenMarket from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Dover, Kohl & Partners will have a booth at the GreenMarket to engage with residents and visitors about the project. 

The second meeting will be held on Jan. 22 at City Hall from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. with a public meeting format. Principal Victor Dover of Dover, Kohl & Partners will present initial options and renderings for the Clematis Streetscape project, including short-term and long-term goals. The floor will then be opened to the public for discussion.

The city commission is expected to make a final decision on the project's designs on Feb. 26 during the Face of the City public meeting. For more information on the project, visit wpb.org/clematisstreetscape.
