The South End Neighborhood Association was formed in 2004. Our neighborhood in West Palm Beach, Florida is bounded by Southern Boulevard to the north, the Lake Worth spillway to the south, the intracoastal waterway to the east, and the FEC railway tracks to the west. There are more than 2,500 homes in the South End. Currently we have over 300 households as members and SENA is growing fast!
Specific action goals for SENA to keep our eye on and move forward:
- Monitor developments at the West Palm Beach Golf Course for the purpose of keeping the Golf Course PUBLIC and re-establishing it as the best MUNICIPAL Golf Course in USA.
- Monitor plans for the development of the 8111 Land Site owned by the City which is adjacent to the Canal boundary between West Palm Beach and Lake Worth. Use this site and the Golf Course as a catalyst for redevelopment within the South End Development Plan
- Monitor and advocate and work with DOT on addressing the needs of developing Forest Hill Boulevard Corridor from I-95 to Flagler Drive.
- Work with government officials to monitor and control the Sober Houses which spring up in neighborhoods.
General Action goals to always try to maintain:
Work with City Commissioner(s) representing our Neighborhood and others to develop, disseminate and implement South End Development Plan/South Dixie Corridor Study. Encourage residents to attend City Commission Meetings and meetings with the Mayor and advocate the issues outlined above.
