The Palm Room at THE CENTRE

The Palm Harbor Community Services Agency, Inc. (PHCSA, pronounced as “FIX-SA”) is the agency that has supervision of Leisure and Recreational services in Unincorporated Palm Harbor. Palm Harbor Parks & Recreation, East Lake Recreation, the Palm Harbor Library, and the East Lake Community library are all part of the PHCSA network.

PHCSA was created in 1985 to provide library and recreation services to the residents of the Palm Harbor Community Services District. Collection of ad valorem dollars (.5 mills) was voted and approved on by the residents of Palm Harbor to provide recreation and library services locally.

Each organization also generates income independently through rentals, program fees and fundraising efforts. That is how they continue to provide exceptional services to the residents in Palm Harbor year after year.

The directors of each of the organizations in the network report to PHCSA, who has overall responsibility and financial oversight. All four entities also have Advisory Boards, comprised of local residents and specific user groups representatives who utilize the local facilities managed by PHCSA organizations. The Advisory Boards are all non-governing but provide guidance and input to PHCSA, the organizations and the community at large.
