CITY OF WEST PALM BEACH NEWS RELEASE -- Members of the public, community innovators, and municipal leaders are invited to attend “Mapping the Future”-- a charrette and public meeting to discuss and plan the future of the Okeechobee Corridor.
This four-day interactive event, which invites stakeholders to bring ideas and map solutions, kicks-off on Monday, June 12 from 5:30 – 8 p.m. at the Palm Beach County Convention Center.
