History & Accomplishments
In 2000, major commercial property owners, developers and business leaders met to discuss growth and the rapid development occurring along PGA Boulevard in Palm Beach Gardens Florida. From this initial meeting, the PGA Corridor Association was created with the mission is to preserve, enhance and promote the PGA Boulevard as the premier business location and main street in Palm Beach County. Membership is limited to property owners, businesses and civic leaders within the PGA Corridor and is by invitation.
Members of the Association include The Gardens Mall, PGA Commons, Downtown at the Gardens, Palm Beach State College, financial institutions, developers, planners, bioscience companies and other professionals who have a stake in the success and sustainability of our community. The Association works closely with the City of Palm Beach Gardens to improve zoning and other land development regulations in order to enhance the PGA Corridor. The Association membership also provides the City with valuable input on proposed projects to preserve and enhance the quality of development within the PGA Corridor.
Evidence of the Association's influence is prominently displayed in the attractive enhanced design of the PGA Flyover which allows traffic to flow east of Interstate 95 over Alternate A1A and the FEC Railway. The PGA Corridor Assocition insisted that the "Entrance to Commerce" on PGA Boulevard needed to emphasize the community's development and high design standards. The Association commissioned a local architect and worked with local developers and governmental agencies to design the aesthetically pleasing structure we have today.
