WELCOME TO

PALM BEACH COUNTY For those who love the sunshine, a rich cultural environment, great shopping, impressive schools, and magnificent homes, there is nothing like Palm Beach County. With an immense array of outdoor activities, you can find something for every activity level. A typical day in Palm Beach County is anything but typical. You can begin your day with an invigorating jog along a tropical trail, then indulge in an amazing breakfast on the beach at CafÊ Luna Rossa before exploring Palm Beach and taking in the high-fashion and hot specialty shops on Worth Avenue. The afternoon may find you taking a chartered yacht cruise on the Intracoastal Waterway, viewing both beautiful estate homes and lush nature parks. As the sun sets, you might be drawn to a comedy show at the Palm Beach Improv, or an orchestral concert at the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts. When you’re ready for dinner, Palm Beach offers restaurants in every imaginable cuisine, and there is lively night life to be found afterwards. Palm Beach County is the quintessential land of perpetual summer. Temperatures can range into the 90-degree zone during the summer months, with typical winter

temperatures in the 70s during the day. The first and only recorded snow in Palm Beach County was in 1977, so it is the ideal location to escape those dark, dreary, icy winters. You won't experience the winter doldrums in Florida.

For those who love the sunshine, a rich cultural environment, great shopping, impressive schools and magnificent homes, there is nothing like Palm Beach County. With an immense array of outdoor activities, you can find something for every activity level. For those who enjoy the relaxation of gardening, the region’s 62.4 inches of annual rain make it easy to create tropical oasis in your backyard.

Buildings and homes vary in architectural style throughout the county. Older single level homes, following more of the traditional Florida style, are still available in some communities. Homeowner associations are extremely popular, as are gated developments for both families and the over-50 set. Any size, and style, of dwelling is available, ready to be turned from a house to a home.

People are flocking into the county, taking advantage of an abundance of new communities that feature state of the art homes and urban condominium living that offers convenient downtown access and stellar

are looking for an active senior community, somewhere to raise a young family, or a friendly urban center where singles can flourish, the county offers the perfect niche for everyone. As the largest county in the State of Florida, it covers 2,383 square miles, including portions of Lake Okeechobee and the Intracoastal Waterway, which account for 245 square miles. It also boasts 45 linear miles of beaches. The county is so large it covers more land area than Rhode Island or Delaware. With 45 miles of shoreline along Florida’s Gold Coast, numerous lakes and ponds, and a wide-ranging canal system that reaches from the ocean to the Everglades, you're rarely far from water. With a population of more than 1.4 million and growing, Palm Beach County is the third largest in Florida, and outpaced most of the country for population growth during 2017. St. Lucie County just to the north is also a fast-growth area, with population rising nearly three percent last year. West Palm Beach, with its shopping, nightlife and trendy atmosphere, is the largest city, covering 52 square miles with a population of approximately 110,000. Following West Palm Beach is Boca Raton (96,114 residents), Boynton Beach (75,569 residents), Delray Beach (67,371 residents) and Wellington, the “Winter Equestrian Capital of the World,” with 63,900 residents.

Tourism, construction and agriculture drive Palm Beach County's strong economy. With the Scripps Research Institute and the Max Planck Florida Institute of Neuroscience located in Jupiter, at the northeast end of the county, there is a booming bioscience industry. Entrepreneurial spirit also has its place in Palm Beach County, where a welcoming business climate has attracted a thriving population of startups in fields ranging from biotech and research labs to computer apps to green energy to equine medical advances to aeronautical products. Palm Beach County offers many different options, whether you’re seeking a fastpaced urban experience, a family-oriented fun-filled lifestyle, an equestrian-focused existence, or leisurely recreation. Florida is the place to spend your time outdoors, and Palm Beach is famous for its abundance of parks and recreational areas, its pristine beaches and coral reefs, its meandering nature walks through preserved wildlands, and the many aquatic adventures if offers for those who love boating, water skiing, paddle boarding or surfing.

COMMUNITIES FOR ALL Downtown West Palm Beach is an urban mecca where culture and the arts meld with high-fashion shopping, lively nightlife and world-class eateries. The median age of the downtown population is approximately 39

years old, and there is plenty of beautiful new housing available for the urban dweller. High-rise buildings offer picturesque views of the ocean while remaining conveniently within walking distance of, or even living above, the action. Whether renting or owning is your goal, you’ll find something just right for you in the heart of downtown. From October to May, a weekly local green market offers fresh, local produce and goods. Culture is a big part of life downtown, where the Armory Art Center, Flagler Museum, Norton Museum of Art, Palm Beach Dramaworks, Palm Beach Opera, the Raymond F. Kravis Center for the Performing Arts and other venues offer music, shows, fine arts exhibitions and more. Special events such as SunFest, a music festival, draws a crowd of more than 130,000 visitors to the downtown area every year and is always a huge hit. Travel less than a half hour west of West Palm Beach and reach the Village of Wellington, a residential community with a population that nearly doubles during the winter season, including its population of horses!

We love having the Palm Beach Relocation Guide in the Downtown West Palm Beach Waterfront Visitor Information Center! The magazine has been a great resource for those who are visiting Palm Beach County and are looking to possibly relocate to the area. We see approximately 15,000-30,000 visitors per year and many of them are looking to open a business, relocate their families or move to West Palm Beach part time. We hope to continue providing our guests with this beautiful magazine and often have to request extra magazines monthly due to them flying off the shelf!” – Kami Kreaps, Manager of West Palm Beach Waterfront Visitor Information Center

BUSINESS

& ECONOMY 

Florida’s Department of Economic Opportunity projects up to a 23 percent growth in software developer jobs in South Florida’s counties through 2025, due to the number of technology-focused firms already operating or now starting up in the area.

In 2018, Chief Executive Magazine rated Florida the #2 best place to do business in the United States, due to the diversity of major industries and attractive incentives offered by the state government. These include tax credits for firms that create high-wage jobs in high-value industries, STEMflorida to connect business with STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) talent pipelines, and more. Palm Beach County’s diversity of major industries include the traditional agribusiness and leisure industries that originally built the Palm Beaches, a dynamic clean tech and high-tech sector, rapidly growing medical and life sciences components, plus aviation and aerospace technologies. The county is a popular location for corporate headquarters, and in the past year United Technologies opened its $115 million LEED platinum certified headquarters in Palm Beach Gardens. The Palm Beach Post reported in March 2018 that job growth has slowed in the county due to nearly full employment, a condition shared throughout the state. After leading

the nation in annual job growth for years, Florida fell to tenth place in annual job growth rankings below a bevy of states in the West and Northwest. Yet Florida remains the only East Coast state in the top 10 and job growth is still happening, albeit not at the same pace as in recent years. Development and construction firms across the county are scrambling to build new office spaces, housing and mixed-use facilities. They are clearly anticipating an influx of new business ventures, relocating business, and expansions as firms grow larger in the strong economy. In September 2017, former Governor Rick Scott announced that Palm Beach County had added 14,300 new private sector jobs. These job openings continue to reflect the growth of science and technology in the county with 4,581 STEM-focused careers, 4,300 jobs in education and health services, 3,700 in leisure and hospitality, and 3,500 new jobs in construction. At the same time, Florida’s Department of Economic Opportunity projects up to a 23

percent growth in software developer jobs in South Florida’s counties through 2025, due to the number of technology-focused firms already operating or now starting up in the area. Modernizing Medicine, a health technology firm in Boca Raton, is planning its second office building in the city, currently has 650 workers and plans to expand. Tech sector growth in Palm Beach County supports a high-tech/green energy/biosciences startup corridor forming between West Palm Beach and Deerfield Beach, which is just over the county line to the south. As a result of the activity in this sector, salaries are on the rise. While Silicon Valley is still betterknown as a tech sector, the extravagant cost of living, crowded housing conditions, plus high state sales taxes and a personal income tax in California are driving software engineers and developers to other states. Palm Beach County’s agribusiness is itself a high technology business in this era. With aviation/aerospace engineering and manufacturing, business and financial services, clean technology and energy, distribution

and logistics, equestrian, health care, private equity and hedge funds, information technology/telecom, life sciences, manufacturing, and the marine industry—combined with incredible weather and a tropical location—the county is a highly desirable location for both businesses and job seekers. Palm Beach County provides businesses with a highly diverse and skilled talent pool. Many are drawn to the county by the exceptional job and business prospects. With no state income tax and low sales and property taxes, Floridians have among the highest retained incomes in the United States. Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton

has top nationally ranked programs in executive business (#42) and nursing (#39) and education (#83) according to the U.S. News & World Report. Palm Beach County offers an excellent infrastructure with most workers experiencing lower commute times than average in the state. Employers seeking candidates both from within and out of state can back up recruiting with the lifestyle advantages of a much larger urban area, abundant outdoor activities, and an excellent quality of life. The newly opened Brightline rail system links downtowns from Palm Beach to Fort

Lauderdale to Miami, providing a highspeed commute between these three business centers, and in the future to Orlando as well. A second commuter system, the TriRail Coastal Link, now in the planning stages, will provide service to 85 miles from Miami northward, spanning dozens of downtown centers in Palm Beach, Broward, and Miami-Dade counties.

DIVERSE WORKFORCE Palm Beach County is Florida’s third most populous, with more than 1.4 million people and a growth rate projected by the state to be 5.3 percent between 2015 and 2020. Although the perception outside the state is that

Palm Beach County has a significant Hispanic population of 19 percent presenting a tremendous advantage for businesses in international trade with Latin America or Central America, or firms seeking to enter Cuba as this highly anticipated marketplace re-opens to the world during the next decade.

MAJOR INDUSTRIES The Palm Beach Business Development Board has identified thirteen industry clusters, whose grouping of interrelated businesses complement each other and are economic drivers for the county. Agribusiness: The historical core of Palm Beach County’s economy is agribusiness which extends from just outside the coastal cities west to Lake Okeechobee. Approximately 36 percent of the county’s acres are devoted to agriculture and ranching, comprising more than a third of the county. The output of $1.41 billion in agricultural sales for 2014-15 leads all counties east of the Mississippi River, and is one of the ten largest agricultural county outputs in the United States. The county is a national leader in the production of sugarcane, fresh sweet corn, and sweet bell peppers, and lead the state in production of lettuce, rice, radishes, Chinese vegetables, specialty leaf vegetables and celery. Additionally, annual revenue within the county from the landscape and landscape maintenance business tops the state at $450 million. Aviation | Aerospace | Engineering: Palm Beach County is a recognized national leader in the aviation/aerospace/engineering industry, with an economic impact of $6.78 billion. There are an estimated 20,000

hosting competitions for jumpers, hunters and equitation, attracting over 250,000 people and more than 7,000 horses to the event. The International Polo Club is located in Wellington, and hosts 260 games during the season, culminating in the U.S. Open Polo Championship.

Business and Financial Services: In the past four years, 60 to 70 asset management firms have opened offices in Palm Beach County, which is seeing an influx of financial professionals from the northeastern states. As the “Wall Street of the South,” Palm Beach County provides an excellent environment for financial, banking and investment firms, and is among the national leaders for these services. Financial organizations requiring specialized business and financial expertise find it easily in Palm Beach County, due to the high concentration of peers and related supporting firms. West Palm Beach alone has more than 230 incorporated financial services firms. With no state individual income tax, corporate gains tax, or top marginal taxes for individuals and estates, Florida is a highly attractive location for the affluent, and the financial companies that serve them. Clean Tech: In 2017, the City of Lake Worth opened a five-acre solar energy field on the site of a closed landfill. The project will generate enough clean energy for 250 homes and reduce emissions equivalent to taking 400 cars off the road. The field took less than a year to build, will eventually provide15 percent of the city’s power, and is just one of many projects taking advantage of the geography and climate of the Palm Beaches. Significant solar, biomass, and ocean energy sources are why Florida ranks third nationally in clean energy jobs. Florida is number one in annual biomass production, number one in net energy generation from biomass,

20

and seventh nationally in generation from renewable sources, including hydroelectric and solar. The state supports research and development in the industry through renewable tax incentives and support of research centers. Notable cleantech businesses include the Sunshine State Biomass Cooperative, Florida Crystals, and Enerfuel. Both Florida Atlantic University and Palm Beach State College are home to clean energy research institutes. Distribution and Logistics: Palm Beach County is centrally located to Florida’s largest population centers and has convenient access to world markets via the port. The county is home to 14 distribution centers totaling over 3.3 million square feet. These distribution centers take advantage of Intermodal Systems Highways, railroads, airports, and the Port of Palm Beach. Among the firms operating distribution centers here are Aldi, American Tire, Cheney Bros., Federal Express, Publix, Sysco, U.S. Food Service, and Walgreen’s. Equestrian: With an estimated $600 million impact on the county, equestrian sports is a signature economic sector for the county. No other place in the world can compare with the concentration of sport horses in Palm Beach County. The Palm Beach International Equestrian Center in Wellington is the more recognizable equestrian sports venue in the United States, and in recent years more than $20 million has been invested in creating the state-of-the-art facility. The Winter Equestrian Festival runs from January to April annually,

Healthcare and Life Sciences: Palm Beach County’s healthcare industry is vital to its economy, providing over 50,000 jobs at more than 1,500 healthcare-related businesses. Palm Beach County recently formed LifeHelix.org, to identify a regional definition and identity, and focus the growth efforts of biotech, health care, life sciences, research and development, pharmaceutical, and medical device manufacturers. Dubbed the Palm Beach Life Sciences Cluster, over 200 companies in the county are engaged in research, development or manufacturing of biotech, medical devices, pharmaceuticals, environmental and biological sciences. This cluster is anchored by two world-renowned research institutes, the Scripps Florida Research Institute and the Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience and capitalizes on the presence of the Charles E. Schmidt College of Medicine at Florida Atlantic University, and the Biotech Technology Complex at Palm Beach State College at Palm Beach Gardens. Palm Beach County’s 14 hospitals and many medical facilities incorporate the latest scientific findings and technology developed locally and around the world, and collaborate with the research institutions regarding best practices, completing the “bench-to-bed” cycle of bringing products to consumers. IT and Telecommunications: The first IBM personal computers were designed and manufactured in Boca Raton, and its technology core has remained strong ever since. Today, 1,400 technology and IT firms call Palm Beach County home, employing more than 18,000 professionals with an average salary of $71,000. Florida’s IT research and development activities amount to more than $8 billion annually, and the state ranks fourth nationally in high-tech establishments, is the third-largest exporter of high-tech products, and is fifth in high-tech employment. The area is recognized as a prime place to locate

technology firms and startups, a reputation that encompasses Deerfield Beach, just across the Hillsboro River from Boca Raton. Manufacturing: The State of Florida offers a sales tax exemption to manufacturers who purchase new equipment and machinery, and Palm Beach County offers targeted industry incentives including sales and use tax exemptions, and tax credits and refunds for capital investment, R&D, and job creation. Currently, there are more than 20,900 manufacturing jobs in the county, with an average salary of $76,179. A valuable network of higher education, vocational education, and customized training programs support manufacturers. Nationally recognized export assistance programs, robust financial and professional services industry, and strong logistics and distribution network add to the appeal of locating in the county. The local workforce offers particular expertise in advanced materials, aerospace, biomedical, IT, defense, marine, and green technologies. Palm Beach County offers unmatched access to large and developing markets in Latin America and the Caribbean. Marine Industry: With more than 40,000 registered boaters in the county, the marine industry has an economic impact of $1.35 billion, ranging from boat and equipment sales to the nearly 20,000 jobs provided by the sector to the revenue generated by marinas and boatyards, and more. Downtown West Palm Beach is home to the Palm Beach International Boat Show, which attracts 460 exhibitors and more than 47,000 people from around the world. The Rivera Beach Maritime Academy provides a career pathway with programs in boat building, vessel research, operational procedures, environmental stewardship, and other topics. The Port of Palm Beach located in Riviera Beach connects to the Atlantic Ocean through the Lake Worth Inlet. It is the fourth-busiest container port in Florida and eighteenth in the nation. The port has a huge impact on business throughout the county, providing a shipping hub for both inbound and outbound trade, intermodal distribution, as well as being a terminal for cruise ships. Bahamas Paradise Cruise Lines calls the

BUSINESS AND ECONOMY

PALM BEACH COST OF LIVING Anyone who has ever relocated to another city knows that number crunching before packing up the moving van is the first step. After all, knowing how far your paycheck can stretch once you’re in your new city is an important consideration for any relocating family or individual. If you’re used to affordable housing prices, reasonable grocery bills, and inexpensive health care, you don’t want to be surprised if your new city is much pricier. You’ll want to make sure you can maintain your current lifestyle if moving from a city like Raleigh, North Carolina, where the cost of living is lower. Conversely, if moving from San Francisco, you can sustain a reduction in income without reducing your present lifestyle.

HOW PALM BEACH COUNTY MEASURES UP When compared to cities that are similar—in terms of major industries and population, among other factors—your hard-earned dollar might not stretch quite as far in Palm Beach County. In fact, you’ll likely pay more for housing, groceries, transportation, and healthcare. You may pay less for utilities, which could be a factor of Palm Beach County’s climate.

The Council for Community and Economic Research is a national organization dedicated to economic development and policy research, and it publishes an annual Cost of Living Index that ranks a range of living expenses in major cities. The index measures differences between areas in the cost of consumer goods and services, minus taxes and non-consumer expenditures. It also measures relative price levels for consumer goods and services in participating areas. The average for a participating place—both metropolitan and non-metro—is 100, and each city’s index is read as a percentage of the average for all places. See the chart on the opposite page to see how Palm Beach County areas rank against other large metro areas, and you’ll see that it’s more expensive in just about every category measured to plant your roots here. Whether you’re thinking about moving here or have just made the move, it’s safe to say that the Palm Beach County area is a thriving, desirable region—but paradise does not come cheap.

FROM ONE PAYCHECK TO THE NEXT Want to know how living in the Palm Beach County/Miami area compares to other cities? Assuming a $60,000 salary in the city you’re moving from and that you’d own a house here, we used a salary/cost of living calculator to help figure out the rest. If you made $60,000 in Atlanta, for example, your salary would need to increase to $67,447 in Palm Beach to maintain the same standard of living. See the table below for the results from a sampling of other cities. Source: money.cnn.com

CHARTER SCHOOL OPTIONS Charter schools in Florida must be nonprofit organizations and be sponsored by a school district, which oversees the schools along with the state. The Florida Department of Education provides an annual analysis and comparison of the overall performance of charter school students to traditional public school students. The comparison is based on the statewide assessment program and information reported by the charter school to the school district. The Palm Beach County School District currently sponsors 41 charter schools at

Justice in Delray Beach, which offers an emphasis on ESOL education for newcomer students from the Caribbean and other countries. Most notable charter schools include Renaissance Charter School, Inc. which governs six schools in Palm Beach. Each school employs an educational model that focuses on student success. Every student works with parents and teachers to develop goals and Personal Learning Plans that encourage growth and strong academic results. Visit palmbeachcharterschools.org to apply.

Florida’s K-12 Standards and Testing Florida’s controversial Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT) system is being retired and two new testing programs, the Florida Standards Assessment (FSA) and the Next Generation Sunshine State Standards (NGSSS), have taken its place since the 2014-2015 school year. These tests are conducted by all public schools and charter schools, are in transition to an online format, and focus on problem solving and critical thinking versus the FCAT system of multiple choice questions. High schoolers must pass the FSA exam to graduate. During the transition period, some portions of the text may use the previous FCAT format as development of the FSA is completed. The FSA, like the FCAT before it, will also provide a method for the state Department of Education to evaluate the effectiveness of schools and teachers. Detailed information about the testing system is available to parents at the Florida Department of Educa-tion website, fldoe.org. Florida does not require private schools to administer the FSA; however, private schools that have enrolled at least one Florida Tax Credit Scholarship student or one enrolled Personal Learning Scholarship Account student must administer one of the 15 nationally, norm-referenced tests identified by the Department of Education or may apply to the Florida Department of Education to administer.

Another well-known charter school is the Franklin Academy Charter School, which is free and public, serving students K-8 with several locations throughout South Florida. In Palm Beach Gardens, the Gardens School of Technology Arts is a K-8 charter school that focuses on creative processes and operates with a mission to provide innovate tools that fosters creativity and problems solving. They seek out new technology tools and applications and integrate them into the classroom. A directory of Palm Beach County’s charter schools is available at palmbeachschools.org.

PREPARING FOR POSTSECONDARY EDUCATION Florida administers a Postsecondary Education Readiness Test (PERT) to eleventh-grade high school students, virtual school students, and homeschooled students to assess their academic skills, college readiness, and course placement. Achievement of a qualifying score on the test, or successful completion of a remediation course, is required for high school graduation. The SAT and ACT tests are generally accepted or required by Florida’s state universities and colleges. Several private colleges and community colleges in the state permit the substitution of alternative tests such as the COMPASS, WAIS or others. Niche reports that the average SAT score in Palm Beach County is 1,100 and ACT scores average out at 24.

HIGHER EDUCATION OPPORTUNITIES Palm Beach County offers tremendous postsecondary education, from a wide array of private career and technical colleges to one of the fastest growing universities in the United States, Florida Atlantic University (FAU), located in Boca Raton. The university enrolls more than 30,000 students in more than 180 undergraduate and graduate degree programs and is recognized by the Carnegie Foundation as an exceptional public research university.

for choosing childcare

Dropping your child off with a new caregiver can be stressful. But doing some legwork will help ease your mind and make the experience safer and more rewarding for you, your child, and the provider. Here are some tips from the Children’s Services Council of Palm Beach County.

Do Your Homework: Visit and compare at least three child care settings. Make appointments and take your child with you if possible. Spend at least 30 to 60 minutes at each visit. Family Central posts a helpful child care checklist on its website: familycentral.org.

Be a Smart Shopper: Look for a positive relationship between the caregivers and the children. Your relationship with the caregivers also should feel comfortable and trusting. The environment should be cheerful and, above all, safe. You want a program that fits your ideas about parenting and learning, as well as your child care needs. Caregivers should be caring, qualified, and well-organized. Their license should be current and the facility should provide you with their written policies and procedures regarding illness, communicable diseases and other emergencies.

Consider Economic Factors: Carefully weigh the pros and cons of each caregiver and facility that you visited. Decide which satisfies the greatest number of your priorities at a rate you can afford. Keep in mind that the highest cost doesn’t guarantee the best caregivers and facilities. Likewise, the least expensive rate does not mean poor caregivers and facilities. Look for Quality: Environment: A place that is safe, clean, and up-to-date on all its licenses. In other words, a place you feel comfortable bringing your child each day. Staff-to-Child Ratio: A place where the teachers/caregivers are warm & loving and spend enough time with each individual child – which helps build self-esteem. Parent Involvement: A place that supports openness between parents and staff, and understands that families are their children’s first teachers. Curriculum: A place where teachers/caregivers work from a proven, established educational plan that outlines clear goals and addresses the needs of each child – so you know your child will be ready for kindergarten. Child Development: A place where children’s emotional, developmental, physical, and educational needs are being tracked—and met. Teacher Education & Support: A place that encourages teachers/caregivers to improve their knowledge and skills and offers them a chance to advance. Do Research: In Palm Beach County, the Health Department licenses and inspects child care facilities. To view most recent inspection reports, visit Family Central’s Child Care search page.

Today, Florida’s state colleges also provide Enterprise Florida–related programs [Enterprise Florida is a public-private partnership to expand and diversify the state’s economy through job creation] and serve as economic development centers, a source of workforce literacy programs, dual enrollment courses, adult education programs, and awarding of baccalaureate degrees in some areas of study. The system also continues to provide outreach to underserved communities as well as remedial education and equivalency programs. Palm Beach State College serves the Palm Beach County in this capacity. See above, “Public Colleges and Universities,” for information.

HEALTH CARE RESOURCES “Physicians in Palm Beach County are more independent, resisting forming large groups or integrating with the hospitals. This independent streak has helped keep insurance premiums down.” Palm Beach County, with its affluent population and active, outdoor Florida lifestyle, also boasts a population focused on positive health and wellness. It is no surprise that the area has abundant resources for both young and old, with high-quality care from pediatrics to geriatrics. Palm Beach County’s health care is primarily divided between two major hospital systems—Tenet Healthcare Corp. and HCA East Florida—and insurance premiums have remained lower than in the two other metro counties, Broward and Miami-Dade. The Sun-Sentinel reported, “Physicians in Palm Beach County are more independent, resisting forming large groups or integrating with the hospitals.” This independent streak has helped keep insurance premiums down.

MEDICAL RESEARCH AND EDUCATION Florida Atlantic University launched the $20 million, 95,000-square-foot Charles E. Schmidt College of Medicine in 2010. This research college is addressing challenging healthcare issues such as cardiovascular disease, stroke, cancer, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, macular degeneration, and autoimmune diseases. In the short time since it opened, Schmidt has made a number of important medical advancements, including a novel approach to the treatment of macular degeneration, a primary cause of blindness in the elderly. In 2015, the FAU John D. MacArthur Campus in Jupiter formed an educational and research program in partnership with the Scripps Research Institute and the Max

Planck Institute for Neuroscience to enhance their research capabilities and build a program of unique undergraduate and graduate degrees. The initiative allows students to work and study alongside some of the world’s leading researchers. Scripps’ mission is to build a world-class biomedical research system in Florida, and the Max Planck Institute’s research focus is in neuroscience, particularly seeking to gain insights into brain circuitry. The Schmidt College of Medicine is also affiliated with the Torrey Pines Institute for Molecular Studies in Port St. Lucie. Torrey Pines conducts basic research into human diseases and human health and specializes in the study of such conditions as multiple sclerosis, heart disease, inflammatory disorders, infectious diseases, transplant rejection,

Delray Medical Center in Delray Beach and St. Mary’s Medical Center in West Palm Beach recently announced the offering of an integrated neurosurgical technology using 3D tractography to visualize surgical paths within the brain. This allows surgeons to design minimally invasive surgeries for patients with deeply seated brain tumors or who have suffered from strokes. Minimally invasive surgical techniques using the newest and most advanced equipment are being implemented at hospitals and outpatient surgical centers throughout Palm Beach County. Everything from gallbladder surgery to knee, shoulder, and hip replacement is now performed using minimally invasive techniques, and with a large retired population needing such surgeries, these methods are in high demand and are now widely available. With a “silver tsunami” of Baby Boomers planning to retire to Florida over the next 30 years, Scripps Research and Jupiter Medical Center have proposed a partnership with Palm Beach Gardens–based NuVista Living to create a $70 million medical research center in Abacoa, a 2,055-acre masterplanned community in Jupiter. The goal is for the institute to bring health care, academia, and research together to expand research horizons in geriatric medicine and care.

NEIGHBORHOODS About 1,000 people relocate to the Sunshine State every day. With more than 1.44 million people calling Palm Beach County home, it is Florida’s third most populated area—and growing, with expectations of hitting 2 million before 2020.

Several years ago, The Harris Poll reported that the desire to live in Florida spans men and women of every generation. Clearly the word has gotten out: This is a great place to live, work, and play. The Florida Department of Education rates the Palm Beach County School District as an A, with above-average student performance across the board, topping the state graduation rate with 85 percent. Palm Beach County is known the world over for its affluent population and leisure lifestyle, but it’s also a center of business, trade, agriculture, technology, and health care/life sciences innovation. While Florida has a 6 percent sales tax, there is no state income tax. Palm Beach County instituted a 1 percent sales tax in 2017 (to expire in 10 years), bringing total sales tax on purchases in the county to 7 percent.

ABOUT PALM BEACH COUNTY With more than 1.44 million people calling it home, Palm Beach County is Florida’s third most populated area, and growing, with expectations of hitting 1.5 million in 2018, and 2 million before 2020. Much of this population influx is expected to come from northern high-tax states like New York, as residents lose valuable property and income tax deductions due to changes in federal tax regulations. Palm Beach is Florida’s wealthiest county, with an per capita personal income of $71,946, according to the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis 2017 report. Located on the Atlantic Seaboard and bordered on the west by Lake Okeechobee and the Florida Everglades, Palm Beach County is permeated with rivers, lakes, canals, and the famous Intracoastal Waterway. The Indian River is known for

the outstanding, trademarked citrus grown along its banks. The Port of Palm Beach, located in Riviera Beach, connects to the Atlantic Ocean through the Lake Worth Inlet and is the fourth-busiest container port in Florida and eighteenth in the nation. With direct connection to the Florida East Coast Railroad, the port has the highest container volume per acre in the United States. In addition to its largest municipal employers, the Palm Beach County School District and the Palm Beach County Commissioners, other service providing employers include Tenet Healthcare, NextEra Energy, Hospital Corporation of America, Boca Raton Regional Hospital, Florida Atlantic University, the Veterans Administration, and Bethesda Health, Inc. Some of the county’s principal goods producing employers are Florida Crystals,

Additional major employers include Office Depot, The Breakers, Jupiter Medical Center, G4S Secure Solutions, Boca Raton Resort and Club, and Wells Fargo & Company. Palm Beach County is a worldwide destination for those seeking mild winters and plenty of outdoor activities, sporting events, concerts, and festivals. Palm Beach is an equestrian county; entire communities devoted to the lifestyle, and horse events range from the princely sport of polo to the quintessentially American sport of rodeo. The Atlantic side of the county to the east offers open ocean boating, fishing, and diving, plus some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. The county has more than 40 golf courses and hosts two championship tournaments. Inland, there are numerous parks with everything from family playgrounds to technical hiking trails, canoeing, freshwater fishing, camping, and more. For those who have taken up the fast-growing new alternative to tennis, pickleball, there are courts everywhere across the county. Adventurers who enjoy ecotours and wilderness excursions find that Florida offers a incredible diversity of nature to explore, including the River of Grass, the

only such ecosystem in the world. Spectacular wildlife abounds in the Everglades and in Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge in the south-central part of Palm Beach County, as well as in Florida’s many pine woodlands, cypress hammocks, and central prairies. Alligators, once endangered, are now common and, although their numbers are managed through an annual hunting season, new residents should exercise caution near ponds and canals as these large reptiles can wander into inhabited areas. Fishermen of all ages have their choice of saltwater or freshwater. Fishing licenses are required, and some species, including Florida lobster, have strictly regulated seasons or are subject to catch-and-release policies. Get started on the best fishing trip of your life at the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission website, myfwc.com.

HOUSING MARKET IN PALM BEACH COUNTY The heat is rising in Florida’s real estate market! Zillow.com reports that the median home value in Palm Beach County has risen 6.7 percent since 2017, to $266,200. The site predicts another five percent increase in the next year and puts the median price of listed homes at $349,000, with the median price of homes sold at $269,100. The first three months of 2018 had a 62 percent hike in closings for single-family homes in Palm

Beach, according to the Palm Beach Board of Realtors. Buyers may need to show flexibility as they shop the market and be prepared to act when they find a home that meets most of their criteria. With construction going on all over Palm Beach County, including urban mixed-used developments as well as single family homes, suppliers are trying to meet this demand for new houses and condos.

FINDING AND BUYING A NEW HOME Looking for a new home is an exciting adventure, but like all adventures, it is also a challenge. Before you start, remember that there are laws to protect you from scams, unnecessary expenses, and discrimination in the process of buying a home. The Fair Housing Act makes housing discrimination illegal, and that applies to the sale, rental, and financing of dwellings, as well as other aspects of home buying. Discrimination based on factors including your race, color, national origin, religion, sex, disability, or family status (including having children under 18 living with a parent or legal guardian, being a pregnant woman, or someone securing custody of a minor under 18) is illegal. The Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA) makes it illegal for anyone to pay

SUMMER 2019

or receive a fee, kickback, or anything of value in exchange for referring settlement service business to a particular person or organization. For example, that means your mortgage lender is forbidden from paying your real estate broker a fee for referring you to the lender. Good news this year is that the unemployment rate is lower than any time since the 1960s, and with a high demand for employees, wages have been on the rise for the past two years, according to payscale.com. Higher employment means more homebuyers and more competition for those on offer. The fun part of home buying is thinking about what your dream home should include at this stage of your life. But before you start shopping, take the time to learn about your finances, understand how much you can afford, and obtain your mortgage pre-approval so you can make an offer immediately when you find your new home. Loan interest rates are of key importance, due to the length of most mortgages. These have risen recently and are likely to continue that trend for the next several years.

Also keep in mind that buying a house is not only about the mortgage; you will also have annual property taxes, homeowner's insurance, and, in Florida, wind storm insurance. Flood insurance may also be required by your lender. Many communities have homeowners or condominium associations who maintain the grounds, which comes with a monthly maintenance cost. Country club communities may require that you also join the country club at an additional fee. Of course, every home requires upkeep and improvement over time, which must be planned into your budget. With all that in mind, you should also remember that you are not obligated to take out the highest loan you qualify for.

LIFESTYLE LIVING Whether you want to live in a villa, a townhouse, a high-rise or mid-rise condominium, a freestanding home, a rental home, or an apartment rental, there is something available for everyone. There are 55-and-older communities that allow residents to have their own homes and age in place with a variety of amenities within the community, such as pools, restaurants, exercise centers, even post offices, salons, and barbershops. Other communities offer rehabilitation and skilled nursing care. Gated communities are more common in South Florida, with either a homeowners association or a corporate entity maintaining the main areas of the property, which is included within a monthly, quarterly or yearly fee. The association, be it homeowners or condominium owners, will have its own set of rules and regulations, as well as a board of directors. While city rules take precedent, community rules can further fine-tune aspects such as the color scheme of a home, whether or not fencing is allowed, and how landscaping should be maintained. Some communities have clubhouses, pools, and other amenities, while others are neighborhoods. Within these communities, many will have similar housing designs and colors, as they are planned communities within the city. Some communities are in, or on, a country club; membership will either be included, be required, or be offered at multiple tiers.

Living in downtown West Palm Beach provides convenient access to the rest of the city. With so much happening in the central area, there is little reason to leave. West Palm Beach is one of the oldest cities in South Florida, and the historic areas have a distinctive tropical ambiance, combining the Spanish Colonial Revival influence of renowned 1920s architect Addison Mizner with the updated beauty of sleek contemporary buildings. The distinctive skyline is often photographed from the Intracoastal Waterway, and the city is instantly recognizable from the air as you fly into Palm Beach International Airport. From bohemian and artistic to trendy and modern, from urban to upscale, West Palm Beach gives residents much more than balmy tropical weather. Its residents have created a city where people can walk, ride bikes or push baby strollers, where they can feel safe on the streets day or night and everyone can explore a list of things to do longer than anyone could ever imagine.

ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT DISTRICT The heart of West Palm Beach is the Arts and Entertainment District, with every cultural amenity one would expect in a major urban area, including the Palm Beach Opera, Palm Beach Pops, Ballet Florida, visiting symphonies, world-class museums such as the Norton Museum of Art and the Flagler Museum, an active historical society, the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts, and much more. CityPlace is at the geographic center of urban West Palm Beach. The European-style plaza and walkways are lined with shops and restaurants, and live entertainment fills the balmy air with music Friday and Saturday evenings. Clematis Street is the place to go for food and just a short walk will bring

you to nearly every type of cuisine in the world, including local landmarks as Roxy’s Pub, where more than 60 beers are available on draft. Life in West Palm Beach is all about the water, and the city has amenities that no other place can offer. With the Intracoastal Waterway and Atlantic Ocean to the east and Clear Lake and Magnolia Lake to the west, this is a water-activities paradise. Head down to the waterfront to rent a kayak or Jet ski, take a snorkeling cruise, or go for a sunset sail on a 50-foot catamaran. On Saturdays from October through May, walk down to the waterfront for the West Palm Beach Green Market, a pet-friendly event where you can buy farm-fresh produce and artisanal prepared foods. In March, the Palm Beach International Boat Show draws thousands of boats from around the world. The waterfront is also the home of SunFest, Florida’s largest waterfront music-andarts festival, attracting more than 275,000 visitors every spring for a celebration of sun, music, food and fine arts. At Halloween, MoonFest will close out the summer season with a costumed street party along Clematis Street.

retirement destination, that concept is long outdated. West Palm Beach is inhabited by a young and vibrant population, with the median age of about 40, 52 percent of the population is age 25-64 and almost 78 percent are over the age of 18. Within the city itself, the population is just over 110,000—small enough to be cozy and large enough to provide the diversity and variety loved by urban dwellers. The median household income is $46,672. As a vibrant and growing waterfront city, West Palm Beach is highly attractive to businesses. Nearly 350,000 people live within a 15-minute drive of downtown, offering a large workforce and a strong consumer market that is an ideal climate for starting a business or joining a thriving company. While South Florida’s major roadways can move slowly during rush hour traffic, South Florida’s Tri-Rail commuter train makes downtown easily accessible from surrounding communities, and the newest rail alternative, Brightline, puts downtown Miami just over an hour away. The major thoroughfares such as Interstate 95 and Florida’s Turnpike connect West Palm Beach to Miami and Orlando in only a few hours’ drive. The city offers a wide range of housing options, from historic art deco–style homes nestled throughout the area to luxury highrise condominium living and beautiful new apartment buildings. It’s no wonder that a population of young and up-and-coming businesspeople and families is gravitating downtown. For those with fur families, West Palm Beach promotes itself as having a pet-friendly downtown.

WHERE TO LIVE? Geographically, West Palm Beach is bounded on both east and west by water, so the central part of the city has a long, narrow profile. South of downtown, Flamingo Park is an artistic and historic neighborhood of art deco homes and stucco mission-style bungalows built in the 1920s. Once neglected, this neighborhood has become revitalized and fashionable. CityPlace, mentioned above, is West Palm Beach’s highly successful New Urbanism project, incorporating hundreds of townhouses, rental apartments and studio lofts smack in the center of town. Also downtown, the Prado offers eight floors and 310 units in the heart of the city center, and One City Plaza is one of the newer luxury high-rises that are lighting up the skyline. Students coming to Palm Beach Atlantic University will want to investigate the Mango Promenade area.

PALM BEACH Across the Intracoastal Waterway lies Palm Beach. For all the fame of its wealth and beauty, this small town on the barrier island has a population of only just more than 8,700

Perhaps the most famous shop on the avenue was that of Lilly Pulitzer, whose comfortable, brightly colored, tropical cotton shifts came to epitomize ’60s-era Florida and the ease of affluent life in the tropics. Boasting five-star hotels such as The Breakers and a town that can be walked entirely in an hour, rubbing elbows with the wealthy at a Palm Beach lounge is a unique Florida experience that cannot be missed.

Less than nine miles away from Silverleaf, is charming Lake Worth, whose historic downtown, so perfect for a lovely stroll, offers an abundance of eclectic boutiques, high-end art galleries and a buffet of eateries; restaurants range from gourmet steakhouses to beachfront seafood joints. Sugar-sand beaches lie just a few blocks from the Lake Worth’s popular downtown district.

In one- and two-story designs, innovative, generous and open-concept floorplans provide seamless flows between light-filled and airy spaces created for comfort, convenience and casual elegance.

With Silverleaf virtually adjacent to Florida’s Turnpike and with I-95 only about six miles away, homeowners enjoy outstanding access to even more. For executives, the Palm Beach County Park/Lantana Airport is within an easy 5.5 miles of Silverleaf.

Each home is appointed with high-quality features you’d expect from Home Dynamics. Stucco exteriors pay tribute to the area’s iconic

Among Palm Beach County’s desirable cities, Wellington lies further inland, less than 7 miles from Silverleaf. There, leisure-seekers take in

the gallop- and heart-pounding matches at the International Polo Club or spend a delightful afternoon shopping at the upscale Mall at Wellington Green. A bit farther from Silverleaf, yet only 25 minutes away and hugging the coast, West Palm Beach boasts the city’s premier shopping, dining and entertainment experience at CityPlace. Delray Beach lies about the same distance away from Silverleaf. The world-class resort city’s Atlantic Avenue is perfect for people-watching, chic restaurants, fine shopping or simply an easy stroll. Closer to home, Silverleaf’s enviable lifestyle also nurtures a family-friendly environment. Top-rated schools in the School District of Palm Beach County are all within close and easy distance. Home Dynamics has been known throughout Florida for building homes of exceptional value since 1994. In Silverleaf, the luxury homebuilders’ models are priced from the upper $300’s to the mid $400’s.

JUPITER Jupiter 561-746-5134 jupiter.fl.us Chamber of Commerce: 561-746-7111 npbchamber.com

Jupiter is located in the northeast corner of Palm Beach County, between Miami and Orlando. A coastal community that celebrates its history, heritage and community, Jupiter’s quality of life is achieved by balancing its “small-town feel” with careful growth. Jupiter’s beautiful beaches, breathtaking inlet, abundant natural areas, and active waterways offer a unique experience for visitors and a superb quality of life for residents. Florida is known for its beaches and waterways, and Jupiter has some of the finest. Jupiter’s wild and scenic Loxahatchee River meanders through neighborhoods and natural areas, eventually meeting the Intracoastal Waterway and breathtaking Jupiter Inlet at the warm waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Jupiter is also the place for nature lovers and eco-tourism enthusiasts. There is free public parking along A1A along more than two and a half miles of Jupiter’s public beaches. The famous “dog beach” is a stretch of the shoreline where four-legged friends are welcome. For more coastal fun, several

104

parks, beaches, swimming areas, snorkeling coves, and jetties line the inlet. Seven designated natural areas make up more than 70 acres of environmentally protected land that offers nature trails, wildlife observation stations, kayaking, and paddle-boarding excursions, and fishing. Jupiter’s Riverwalk, a two and a half mile walking and biking path along the Intracoastal, follows the waterway from Jupiter Ridge Natural Area north to Inlet Village, where old Jupiter’s working waterfront heritage still lives. Jupiter has something for everyone. Whether you are into sports, arts, history, or just expanding your mind, you can take in a play, learn something new, attend a festival, browse through a museum, or catch a pop-fly. Home to the St. Louis Cardinals and Miami Marlins spring training at Roger Dean Stadium, the Jupiter Riverwalk, Maltz Jupiter Theatre, FAU’s Lifelong Learning Center, and the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse and Museum, Jupiter offers so many cultural opportunities, you’ll want to extend your stay just to experience it all. The feeling of small-town lives on in Jupiter. Friendly neighborhoods offer a unique quality of life for Jupiter’s families, professionals, and businesses. Take a

When you discover Jupiter, you’ll find that it is the land of discovery. Home to the Scripps Research Institute, G4S, the Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience, and Florida Atlantic University, Jupiter is the bioscience hub of Palm Beach County. These institutions make exciting scientific and technological advances every day that create unique opportunities for research, academia, and new businesses. Jupiter’s rich history spans thousands of years, involving Native Americans, explorers, settlers, and pioneers. The famous Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse, which sits atop an ancient shell mound, is a beautiful place to learn about the visits by early Spanish explorers, Seminole Indians, maritime shipwrecks, and even World War II radio stations. Jupiter’s early inhabitants and famous pioneer families, such as the DuBois and the Whites, left the community with rich stories and artifacts of Old Florida life along the beautiful Loxahatchee River.

4. Inspections are important. Whether you are buying new construction, a condominium, or a historic home, it is recommended to have an inspection. While inspections are optional, it will generally only cost you a few hundred dollars and may bring you peace of mind. The inspectors look at the condition of the home beyond cosmetics, and if something is found, it will allow you to renegotiate with the seller to fix the problem or possibly lower the price of the home. Depending on the age and location of the home, a four-point inspection and a wind mitigation inspection may be necessary but can provide you significant savings on your insurance.

LANTANA Lantana 561-540-5000 lantana.org Lantana Chamber of Commerce: 561-585-8664 lantanachamber.com

The Town of Lantana is a coastal community in Palm Beach County that still retains the charm of its origins as an old Florida fishing village. Nestled along the coast of Palm Beach County and noted as one of the oldest communities in South Florida, it’s a great destination for vacationers and home seekers alike. When it comes to small-town charm, Lantana hast it. Step foot inside any of the three square miles of Lantana and you’ll be greeted with a warm welcome! Originally named after the gorgeous wildflower that grew in the area, Lantana was founded by Morris Lyman and was incorporated in 1921. Pieces of Lantana’s history are found throughout town with nods to Lyman and the earlier settlers on various parks, buildings, and developments. This hidden gem is home to small cottagestyle shops, a fishing pier, a two-acre boat launching facility, a kayak park, and panoramic views of the Intracoastal, making it a destination for a day on the water, kayaking, picnicking, or simply watching boats go

by. On a dazzling sunny day, Lantana Municipal Beach is the perfect place to warm your toes in the sand. Ample parking, sand volleyball courts, picnic tables, and the children’s playground create the perfect setting to spend the day with family and friends soaking up the sun and watching the clouds pass by. Just steps from the beach, nature lovers can gather at the Lantana Nature Preserve. What was once the town landfill, the land has now been shaped to create a beautiful native habitat for wildlife. These 13 acres of nature sanctuary welcome bird watching and hiking alongside views of the Lake Worth Lagoon. This unique coastal forest is home to zebra longwing butterflies, red fox, osprey, kestral, green heron, loggerhead shrike, and many more beautiful species of birds and small mammals. Still need convincing? Lantana Nature Preserve was recently named the “Best Hidden Preserve” by Florida Weekly. The town also hosts an array of ways to get involved. Beach clean ups are a fun way to meet new friends and offer an opportunity to give back to the community. The town coordinates these cleanups to help protect the ocean and ecosystem—something the town puts an emphasis on in many different ways. The

junior lifeguard program is offered to children interested in learning the responsibilities of ocean lifeguards. The program provides young men and women a sound aquatic background and acquaints them with the hazards of ocean swimming while exposing them to an environment that promotes courtesy, respect, discipline, sound morals, and good sportsmanship. For artist-minded people, the town has an exciting adopt-a-hydrant program, which lets the artist paint a fire hydrant as they wish! From simple stripes to elaborate landscaping, choose a design that fits your style and paint a piece of Lantana. In 2015, the town introduced “Enjoy Lantana!,” a town-wide initiative to produce a variety of special events that provide unique year-round experiences for residents and tourists alike. Throughout each year, the community comes together for family friendly movies at the beach, a concert in the park, Bark in the Park (an event for fourlegged friends held at the town’s dog park), and a spectacular July 4th Celebration that features a colorful fireworks display.

Conveniently located in the heart of the Treasure Coast, St. Lucie County offers an affordable South Florida lifestyle. Comprising Fort Pierce, Port St. Lucie, and St. Lucie Village, St. Lucie County was founded in 1905 with deep agricultural roots in cattle, citrus, fishing, and pineapples. While you can still smell the tasty orange blossom breezes from the grooves in the western part of the county, it’s St. Lucie County’s natural and coastal environments that made it one of the fastest-growing areas just a few short years ago. St. Lucie County’s current population of roughly 291,000 is twice what it was just two decades ago. And there is plenty of land and housing available for that number to continue to grow.

Founded in 1961, the City of Port St. Lucie (Florida’s eighth-largest city) features a variety of housing options from gated golf communities, in and around the award-winning PGA Village and Golf Club complex, to the newer townhomes and traditional residences inside the Tradition area. Those looking for older historic homes can find hidden treasures in Fort Pierce, founded in 1901. With its easy access to the Atlantic Ocean through the Fort Pierce Inlet, Fort Pierce is a city that is looking toward the future without forgetting its past, from the renovated Sunrise Theatre (built in 1924) to its award-winning Saturday morning Farmer’s Market.

Despite its growing population and business industry (St. Lucie County features three hospitals, including a cutting-edge trauma center and a heart institution), local leaders have taken great steps to protect the natural beauty that makes St. Lucie County unique. Through a voter-approved bond, the county has purchased nearly 11,000 acres that is open to the public for passive recreation such as horseback riding, hiking, biking, fishing, and bird watching. St. Lucie County is one of the few places in Florida where horseback riding is allowed on the beach. There are dozens of one-of-kind arts and cultural facilities including the Zora Neale Hurston Dust Tracks Trail, Florida Highwaymen Heritage Trail, A.E. Backus Museum & Gallery, and Heathcote Botanical Gardens; environmental learning centers such as the St. Lucie County Aquarium, Manatee Observation & Education Center, Oxbow Eco-Center; sporting activities like charter fishing outfits, private and public golf courses, Fort Pierce Jai-Alia, and Tradition Field (spring training home of the New York Mets); and historical institutions like the National Navy Seal UDT-SEAL Museum and St. Lucie County Regional History Center. It’s these and other reasons that have helped St. Lucie County grab the attention of those who enjoy arts, culture, outdoor activities, and sports.

The beauty of the Treasure Coast is unparlike a golden necklace along the Atlantic coastline, separated from the mainland by the Intracoastal Waterway, the boating lane that reaches 3,000 miles from New Jersey to Key West and around the Gulf of Mexico to Brownsville, Texas.

FORT PIERCE North of Port St. Lucie is the City of Fort Pierce, named for the fort constructed by Lt. Col. Kendrick Pierce during the Second Seminole Indian War in the 1830s. Fort Pierce has a population of over 43,000, and a rural ambience with ranching and citrus farming being significant factors in its economy. Florida has four million acres of pastureland and one million of grazing woodland and is eleventh nationally in the production of beef cows. This ranching tradition remains strong in the Fort Pierce area, and it is a highly attractive location for those seeking to enter or expand a cattleproducing enterprise.

Encompassing the communities of Port Salerno, Stuart, Palm City, Jensen Beach, Indiantown, Jupiter Island, Hobe Sound, and Hutchinson Island, Martin County residents enjoy an exceptional quality of life. Here you will escape the concrete jungle. As soon as you travel over the county line, you’ll recognize the Martin County difference and note the fact there are no buildings over four stories here! Martin County was created in 1925 with the northern portion coming from St. Lucie County and the southern portion coming from Palm Beach County. It was named for John W. Martin, former Governor of Florida. The county seat is located in Stuart, the “Sailfish Capital of the World.” Martin County is centrally located on the Treasure Coast. Within 100 miles, you can access the attractions in Orlando and Miami. The county is known for its natural beauty. It is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean to the east and Lake Okeechobee to the west. The community has a deep connection to water and the natural resources sustained by it. Martin County residents and visitors play on some of the finest beaches in the United States and have access to a diverse array of waterways connecting to both the St. Lucie River and the Indian River Lagoon. Easy access to the Gulf of Mexico from Martin County is possible through the Trans-Florida Canal, the only channel traveling east-west in the state. There is a reason why the area was named one of the “Happiest Seaside Towns in America” and number three“Best Small Town to visit” and why it landed the number nine spot on the “50 Most Beautiful Small Towns in America” list. The natural beauty and attractions here offer up a treasure trove of activities—minus the crowds of its next- door neighbors. Enjoy ever y thing from rodeos to high-end shopping, art galleries, world-class fishing, one-of-a-kind museums, and eco-friendly adventures. Martin County is home to approximately 153,400 residents. Martin County’s schools are consistently highly rated in the State of Florida. Public school offerings include 12 elementary, five middle, and five high schools, in addition to two charter schools and private schools.

St. Lucie County School District provides excellence in education to students and families. Students are given unique opportunities to work with local businesses, including the Vaccine Gene Therapy Institute and the FAU/Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute, an aeronautics academy in partnership with Embry Riddle University. The school district also offers an award-winning manufacturing academy and a veterinary academy. In the past decade, the district constructed nearly $800 million in new facilities, including two new state-of-the-art high schools and four K-8 schools.

St. Lucie County School District In St. Lucie Public Schools, the system of one neighborhood, one school has developed into the concept of a larger community with several schools to choose from. What was formerly an annual ritual of redrawing school boundaries and moving children from one school to another involuntarily to accommodate growth has been replaced with an open-enrollment system where parents select from among a variety of schools close to where they live. Once a child is enrolled in a school, parents have the assurance that their student will remain in that school through the highest grade offered unless the parent voluntarily chooses a different school. The district employs more than 2,700 teachers and 2,1000 staff, along with more than 12,000 volunteers to serve its approxaimtely 36,650 students. St. Lucie provides 17 elementary schools, nine K-8 schools, four middle schools, five high schools, one 6-12 School, and four magnet schools, including Fairlawn Elementary (K-5) in Fort Pierce, Fort Pierce Magnet School of the Arts (K-8) in Fort Pierce, F.K. Sweet Elementary (K-5) in Fort Pierce, and Lincoln Park Elementary (6-12) in Fort Pierce, a high achieving academic school that attracts students from across the county

The Treasure Coast is a beautiful region with beautiful beaches, charming towns, and something to do for everyone.

APARTMENT+ CONDO LIVING Palm Beach County is one of the fastest-growing counties in the United States. Sales of townhouses and condominiums are on the rise, while the skyline is ever-changing, with new constructions being built to feed the huge demand for new housing.

In July 2017, Palm Beach County’s population estimate was a 1,471,150. From the year 2010, this the amount of change in growth was 11.4 percent. For that matter, in the year 2016 alone, Palm Beach County grew by a shocking 22,000 people just in that year, noting it as one of the fastest-growing counties in the United States. Not too far from Palm Beach County, St. Lucie County has experienced a change in population of 13.1 percent from the year 2010 through July 2017. The bad news is that with demand high, rents are rising—growing 6 percent in the past year. While rent can vary greatly within the county depending on neighborhood, the average price for a studio apartment is $1,485 per month, a one-bedroom $1,234, a two-bedroom $1,485, and a three-bedroom $1,745, according to RENTCafé.com. Sixty percent of available apartments fall in the

$1,000 to $1,500 range, and 40 percent run from $1,501 on up. The largest demand is for three-bedroom apartments.

With demand so high, apartment availability in the county is tight for the most popular sizes, with 4,500 two-bedroom units and only 2,300 three-bedroom units available, compared to 2017 when more than 10,000 units were available in each category. For smaller sizes, 5,200 one-bedroom and a miniscule 70 studios are available. About 30 percent of available rentals are pet-friendly.

$175,900, compared to $179,500 in 2017. Reports from the Realtors® Association of the Palm Beaches and Greater Fort Lauderdale show that from May 2017 to May 2018, while single family home sales dropped by 2.7 percent, sales of condominiums and townhouses rose by 3.9 percent. Active Inventory dropped from 6,210 to 6,122, with the months of supply holding nearly steady

MARKET OVERVIEW In the Palm Beach County housing market, sales of townhouses and condominiums are on the rise. Sales have risen nearly 4 percent from May 2017 to May 2018, while the average sale price jumped 23 percent from $269,000 to $331,000, according to

differences to take into consideration. Both types of housing often include central locations, amenities like swimming pools, and parking within proximity of the housing unit. However, apartment complexes are typically owned by a company or person and are run by a property manager, while condominiums are owned by the individual buyer, who is also required to join a condominium or homeowners association as a voting member. In an apartment, the property owner or manager is responsible for maintenance of the physical building—so the roof, appliances, air conditioning, landscaping, and driveways are not the renter’s responsibility. If something breaks, you call the property manager for help. With online reviewers quick to chastise facilities that are slack on maintenance, companies are usually responsive. Leases are typically a minimum of one year, though in Florida there is also a large market for winter seasonal rentals. Renters who plan to stay in a location for one or more years may want to inquire whether any of the units around them are seasonal and may have multiple tenants at different times of the year. Rent usually includes garbage pickup and may include water or other utilities like cable service. Owning a condominium is like home ownership with a twist. Units are owned by individuals, who are collectively part of a condominium or homeowners association and pay a monthly fee for the maintenance

of amenities like a central clubhouse or swimming pool, street lighting and paving, and usually landscaping upkeep and improvements. Some include cable television or other utilities. Because the variety of building types—some are apartment-style blocks while others are clusters of three to five units—what is included in maintenance fees can vary greatly. Block-style buildings often include roofing in their fees, while cluster-style units may not. The cost of monthly maintenance can vary greatly from community to community. These communities also typically have rules of conduct, and breaking these rules may result in fines. It is important to completely understand the association’s documents before purchasing—and it is advisable for renters of condos to review them as well. When renting a condominium, the renter typically deals directly with the owner. Arrangements may or may not include use of a clubhouse, pool or golf course, and the homeowners association may place special restrictions on renters such as only allowing certain kinds or sizes of pets. Renters may be asked to pay a deposit to both the landlord and the homeowners association, so when considering renting a condo or townhouse, ask detailed questions about costs, amenities available, and rules of conduct. Some associations do not allow units to be rented out, or may have restrictions on the number that can be rented at one time, so it is important for potential renters of condos

CHOOSING THE RIGHT NEIGHBORHOOD Finding the right neighborhood can be great fun as you and your family explore the county and learn what is available in your new area. With 38 municipalities, Palm Beach County offers many lifestyles, including urban cities, suburban towns, and country villages, all offering unique atmospheres and activities. There are some general things to keep in mind when looking for a neighborhood that matches your needs. For young families just starting out, local school district boundaries are important to consider, as is proximity to daycare, preschool, and playgrounds.

Walking to places such as the Norton Museum of Art, CityPlace, and Clematis Street, are all special advantages to living downtown. Public transportation, the breathtaking view from a high-rise apartment, and constant activities make downtown areas in Palm Beach County appealing to young adults who crave excitement, energy, and cultural activities. South: The southern part of Palm Beach County ends at Boca Raton, which is currently one of the hottest real estate markets in the state—not only for all the new apartments and townhouses being built, but also for a boom in corporate headquarters and office developments, reflective of the great job market. Boca Raton, Delray Beach, and Boynton Beach are some of the larger cities in the area. Boca Raton is home to Florida Atlantic University and offers high-end shopping, especially at the Town

Center at Boca Raton mall and Mizner Park, where the amphitheater offers frequent open-air concerts and seasonal events. Delray Beach is a favorite locale for retirees as well as young adults, with ample hospitals, medical care, close proximity to the beach, and a downtown area with plenty of restaurants and cultural activities. Delray is also home to the Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens, an internationally recognized cultural attraction with picturesque views of the beautiful gardens, hours of exploration, and fascinating exhibits in the museum. The annual celebrations of the Hatsume Festival and Lantern Festival each draws more than 12,000 attendees. North: Northern Palm Beach County includes Jupiter and Palm Beach Gardens, as well as the plenty of waterways and outdoor activities. The Loggerhead Marina, Roger Dean Stadium, Florida Atlantic University, Downtown at the Gardens, and the Gardens Mall are all attractions unique to the northern part of the county. Palm Beach Gardens is also

one of the most sought-after places to live, and has multiple housing, apartment, and condo developments under construction—so plenty of new places to live are coming soon.

Prices range dramatically based on location, views, and proximity to the Atlantic Ocean, however, there are plenty of housing choices available bordering both the IntraCoastal Waterway and the Atlantic Ocean. Populations throughout the county are concentrated on the eastern coast with most of the population within a half-hour drive from the coast.

INSURANCE REGULATIONS AND TENANT RIGHTS Palm Beach County’s government is renterfriendly. Tenants generally have limited responsibilities other than paying rent. Besides keeping the dwelling clean and removing trash, renters must complying with housing and health codes, refraining from damaging or defacing the residency, and use systems such as electric, air conditioning, plumbing, and heating responsibly. Landlord responsibilities are divided into two categories. First, if the rental unit is a single-family house, duplex, triplex, or mobile home, the landlord must make sure screens are in reasonable condition, and if not, repair them yearly; keep the plumbing in working condition; comply with building, housing, and health codes; and maintain structural components of the dwelling, such as the floor, foundation, doors, windows, and walls, in good condition. For triplexes and units that don't fit the other categories, the landlord must provide garbage removal and containers, a smoke detector, a working heater, running water and hot water, locks and keys, and pest and animal control. If any of these things, such as working smoke detectors, are not otherwise agreed upon in writing, the landlord is responsible. However, that does not mean the landlord is responsible for the cost of water, garbage removal, or other utilities, though that is sometimes included in contracts. Florida does not have specific rent control rules, though rates can only be increased at the beginning of a new lease. Leases are typically one year in length. For additional details, visit leg.state.fl.edu, explore Florida Statutes, and select TITLE VI Civil Practice and Procedure, where Chapter 83 deals with landlord and tenant rules and regulations.

Finding a Palm Beach CONDO OR APARTMENT Apartment complexes are popping up just about everywhere; after all, apartments offer high-density living in a relatively small footprint. Apartments also offer many size options and benefits. Apartment living makes it possible to sign a lease and then move in a year, two years, or even five years, at will. Remodeling and other improvements, such as carpeting and air conditioner maintenance, are not typically the responsibility of a renter. Apartment complexes are often equipped with various amenities such as a pool, tennis court, basketball court, fitness center, and community building. One of the many benefits of South Florida’s frequent sunny days and mild winter weather is that grilling and outdoor cooking are easily done almost every day of the year. Many apartment complexes and condo associations have communal outdoor grills. Consider whether the apartments allow children and pets, and whether the location gives access to schools, special venues ,and cultural amenities, as well as the distance from work, transportation options, and of course, the cost of rent. Timing your move is also important to getting the best price. In the winter months, beginning around Thanksgiving and lasting through late spring, South Florida experiences a huge influx of “snowbirds” —retirees and vacationers from the northern states seeking to escape the snowy winter and enjoy the tropical lifestyle for a few months. This annual influx drives up prices. In and around Wellington, the Winter Equestrian Capital of the World, equestrians arrive with their horses, groomers, veterinarians, and teams for the competitive season, pushing up housing demand and costs. The Internet is a great starting point for your search, where you can find a Realtor® who specializes in rentals, or use search websites like zillow.com, trulia.com, apartments.com, or rent.com. Using online resources allows potential renters to plot possible locations and get a sense of rent pricing, amenities, animal-friendly properties, and sites near schools. Many rental websites offer the flexibility to search by category, select preferences, and sort by price and size. When it comes time to pound the pavement and check out apartments or condominiums, there are two uniquely Florida things to keep in mind: • Covered parking is important for preserving your car’s paint under the tropical sun and during the rainy season’s afternoon downpours. Don’t worry, these storms don’t last long and help lower the sultry summer temperature a few degrees. • Storage is different in Florida. The high humidity and temperatures mean that outdoor storage of books, electronics, photos, and clothing in a storage shed or closet is not advised. Use your storage shed for lawn furniture and landscaping equipment and keep your valuables indoors where the air conditioning keeps humidity levels low. More and more apartment complexes are adding dog parks and other animalfriendly areas. Fur-covered family members need their exercise, and Palm Beach County has plenty of dog parks to accommodate them. Renting is a great way to explore the area before committing to purchasing a condominium or a house. With the housing market growing ever hotter in Palm Beach County, fewer units are available for sale, prices are up, and closings happen quickly. If you find that perfect gem of a home, be prepared to make your move from renter to owner.

GETTING AROUND PALM BEACH COUNTY

Transportation options are both plentiful and efficient. From train service and multipe airports to buses and water taxis, there are many ways to get around the area and explore. THE LAY OF THE LAND At nearly 2,000 square miles of land area (excluding its large portion of Lake Okeechobee), Palm Beach is the secondlargest county in the state (after Collier County in southwest Florida). It’s also bigger than two entire states: Rhode Island and Delaware. Well over half of Palm Beach County, though, is made up of wetlands, the northern remnants of the Everglades, agricultural (especially sugarcane and vegetable) fields, and wildlife and water conservation areas. Most of the county’s roughly 1.4 million residents are concentrated along the 45-mile Atlantic oceanfront, commonly known as “the Palm Beaches” or the Gold Coast,

where the transportation network is intricate and advanced and most people get around by car. More than 30 municipalities are laid out in a north-to-south line along the most heavily populated 15-mile slice inland from the coast. In the past several decades, though, more villages have popped up in the central-western areas, out to the natural demarcation point along State Road 80/U.S. 98 (most often called Southern Boulevard), which is well-known as 20-Mile Bend. A few miles west of Wellington and Royal Palm Beach is where urban and suburban Palm Beach County gives way to agricultural fields and the hour-long drive to the handful of smaller, rural communities surrounding the southeastern end of Lake Okeechobee.

Palm Beach County encompasses five general areas. Locals will tell you there’s north county, or all of the cities from Riviera Beach north to the county line; central county or “downtown,” where the largest and oldest city, county seat, and most common destination, West Palm Beach, is surrounded by a number of smaller cities; west-central county, where most new development is taking place; and the Glades, which is the area around the shores of Lake Okeechobee. Finally, there is south county, the mostly built-out area south of Hypoluxo. West of Florida’s Turnpike, populous areas lying just east of the Everglades—inland several miles from coastal Boca Raton, Delray Beach, and Boynton Beach—could

constitute a city or two in their own right but never have incorporated. That region is also home to the county’s Agricultural Reserve Area, which is under heavy development pressure.

TRANSPORTATION ARTERIES Living in any of those areas except the Glades is most convenient for people who work along Florida’s southeast coast. That is where the region’s two major controlledaccess highways are: Interstate 95, a multilane freeway that runs the length of the East Coast (whose “missing link” north of PGA Boulevard in Palm Beach County was only completed in late 1987) and Florida’s Turnpike, a multilane divided toll road that spans 313 miles from its northern end at Interstate 75 in Wildwood to U.S. 1 in Florida City south of Miami, the gateway to the Florida Keys. I-95 has more than two dozen exits to major east-west roads in the county; the turnpike has eight full interchanges and two partial ones. Tolls on the turnpike average roughly 7 cents per mile but are discounted by about 25 percent for users of the SunPass electronic toll system, which works on all state toll roads and is being updated to operate in a number of other states. The state Department of Transportation makes navigating rush hours somewhat easier

130

PA L M B E A C H R E L O C AT I O N G U I D E

128_Getting Around PB_0419.indd 130

with electronic signboards on the interstate and turnpike that are used to alert drivers about delays and road closures due to accidents, construction, special events, and other incidents. A special radio frequency broadcasts emergency messages, and WPTV-Channel 5, the local NBC station, has the county’s only traffic helicopter and runs regular reports during its morning and evening news programs, coinciding with the rush hours. The Department of Motor Vehicles also offers a system known as Florida 511, which is available via the Internet at FL511.com and via phone by dialing 511, which provides similar information for those planning a trip. Traffic cameras and estimated travel times are also accessible through Florida 511. There are several other major north-south roads clustered near the Atlantic’s shores: State Road A1A, which hugs the entire Florida east coast and is the “main street” for the communities lining the barrier islands; U.S. 1, which runs from Key West to Maine, coinciding in places with A1A and elsewhere with what’s often called Federal Highway, which is just across the bridges spanning the Intracoastal Waterway from A1A; Congress Avenue (State/County Road 807); Military Trail (State/County Road 809); and, farther inland, State Road 7/U.S. 441, the main route for the county’s western suburbs. All of the

last three are heavily trafficked commercial corridors. One road, commonly called the Beeline Highway (State Road 710), diagonally connects the coastal cities with communities to the northwest and on into Martin County, Palm Beach’s northern neighbor. It is being improved to service the growing, more rural communities in north county and points north. Hundreds of bridges crisscross the Palm Beaches’ many waterways, including 20 drawbridges maintained by the state or county that span the Intracoastal. No tolls are charged, but sometimes bridge openings take a toll on easy commutes since their schedules vary. Some lift on boaters’ demand; others open at regular intervals, most commonly on the hour and half-hour.

OPTIONS FOR COMMUTERS Palm Beach County is serviced by both Amtrak and Tri-Rail, the commuter railway operated by the South Florida Regional Transportation Authority, a consortium of counties, and running north-south from Mangonia Park (just north of West Palm) to Miami, right next to I-95 for most of the way. Tri-Rail runs trains every 20 or 40 minutes, depending on the hour, between 4 a.m. and 10:30 p.m. weekdays, and every hour on weekends between 5 a.m. and 11 p.m. Fares vary, and a variety of different passes also are offered.

OTHER TRANSIT CHOICES The Lyft and Uber car-hailing services are available via their smartphone apps in the county. Local cab companies, which have pressured the county to make those services subject to the same sorts of rules that they must follow, are too numerous to list. There are three limited water taxi services in the county, Sailfish Marina Resort’s and the Peanut Island Water Taxi in Riviera Beach

and Admiral Water Taxi in Deerfield Beach. Bicycling is not a highly visible mode of commuting here, mostly because of crowded roadways, but some roads have been retrofitted with bicycle lanes, and new roads must have them by state law. Also, Tri-Rail trains and Palm Tran buses have accommodations for bicyclist commuters.

WATER TAXIS If you are looking for a fun way to see the beaches in Palm Beach County or to spend the day at the very popular Peanut Island then a Water Taxi might be the way to go. Sailfish Marina Resort on Singer Island (98 Lake Drive) operates the Palm Beach Water Taxi, which has 20-passenger covered vessels and 49-passenger Corinthian catamarans that travel to all areas of the Palm Beaches accessible through the Intracoastal Waterway. Narrated sightseeing “Now and Then” tours of Palm Beach are offered daily, as well as shuttles to Peanut Island, which has picnicking, swimming, snorkeling, and camping facilities and is a very popular gathering spot during holidays, and special events.The marina’s number is 561-844-1724, and its website is sailfishmarina.com; call 561-683TAXI for reservations, which are strongly recommended.

PUBLIC AND PRIVATE AVIATION Palm Beach International Airport in West Palm Beach is the county’s premier portal for air travel (both via major airlines and general aviation aircraft), but visitors may find it less expensive to travel from or to Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood, Miami, or Orlando international airports. Many car rental agencies are based at PBIA, but for other options such as cabs, shuttles, and private transportation (utility vehicles or limousines), it might be easiest to go through Airport Transfers Southeastern Florida Transportation Group. Palm Tran bus service is available to take travelers wherever they need to go, including to transfer to Tri-Rail or Amtrak. There are three other airports operated by the county Department of Airports. The North Palm Beach County General Aviation Airport provides quick access to Jupiter, Palm Beach Gardens, and the Florida Research Park, and is a reliever for

PBIA but has no major airlines servicing it, accepting both jet and private aircraft. Palm Beach County Park Airport is in Lantana, 6 miles south of PBIA, and is also a reliever airport but does not accept jet aircraft. It is home to several flight schools. Palm Beach County Glades Airport is near Lake Okeechobee and is the county’s designated general aviation recreational and sport flying airport.

WHEN YOU MOVE HERE … The first thing new residents should do is register their out-of-state vehicles with the Department of Motor Vehicles, because the law gives them only 10 days to do so after establishing residency in Florida by placing a child in public schools, securing a job, or engaging in any occupation here. Strangely, the law also mandates that new residents acquire a Florida driver’s license within 30 days, and that is needed before registering a car. (Drivers may be ticketed if they’re discovered not to have completed these tasks in time.) Auto insurance must be obtained from a company licensed in Florida. Vehicle registration is done by completing an application for certificate of title, which begins the process of transferring title from a person’s former state of residence and gives drivers a license plate, vehicle registration certificate, and validation decal for the plate. Applicants will need their Vehicle Identification Number(s), current license plate number(s), and out-of-state registration number(s) and must prove ownership and that they’ve met Florida insurance requirements. Those are: $10,000 minimum Personal Injury Protection (PIP) coverage and $10,000 minimum Property Damage Liability protection (PDL).

What’s New at the Norton? Just About Everything! Welcome to a new Norton Museum of Art, which opened to the public on Feb. 9, 2019! The Museum’s expansion, designed by Pritzker Prizewinning architect Lord Norman Foster of Foster + Partners, is the most comprehensive in the institution’s 78-year history. Dramatic changes include re-orienting in bold fashion the main entrance to South Dixie Highway. You can’t miss the Museum – or its main entrance – now! A 65-foot-tall banyan tree and a 19-foot-tall sculpture, Typewriter Eraser, Scale X, by Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen, flank the entrance to the new 59,000-square-foot Kenneth C. Griffin Building, and a 44-foot high reflective metal overhang all signal a significant destination. Rooftop letters that glow at night proudly trumpet the Museum’s name. This is not your grandma’s art museum. The original 1941 building and galleries were refurbished and seamlessly incorporated into the sleek new design. Taking advantage of the area’s lush vegetation – especially the magnificent 80-year-old banyan tree – the Foster + Partners new campus plan created, in Lord Foster’s words, “a museum in a garden.” Bordering the Museum on its south and east sides is the beautiful new garden, featuring a great lawn, abundant sub-tropical plantings, and more than a dozen sculptures by artists including Keith Haring and Joel Shapiro.

Another major change is the introduction of natural light into the Museum via towering windows along the west façade and ceiling-to-floor windows along the south colonnade. Light now cascades into the Museum in different shades throughout the day. The dazzling Ruth and Carl Shapiro Great Hall with its dramatic, 44-foot-high ceiling, serves as the Norton’s living room, encouraging visitors to enjoy the new coffee bar or relax before visiting the galleries or attending a program. (The Hall’s Cyclops-sized oculus and 300-square-foot window also allow more light to flow into the building.)

Speaking of programs, the Norton is presenting an array of new offerings, including: an Arts Leader Lecture Series, an Artist Talks series, a Sunday Speakers series, a Norton Cinema series, featuring independent and rarely screened films, and a Contemporary Dance series. The popular weekly series Art After Dark –Where Culture and Entertainment Meet – has been moved to Fridays and expanded to 10 p.m. As for the art, the new building has 12,000-square feet of additional exhibition space, including the first gallery dedicated to showing works from the Norton’s impressive Photography Collection. Classroom space has doubled, and there is a larger and more appropriate space to exhibit student artwork. Nine exhibitions, including one by high school students, are on view now! The Stiller Family Foundation Auditorium features state-of-the-art sound and lights and comfortable seats, allowing guests to better enjoy lectures, films, and performances. Visitors also will discover an enticing new restaurant and bar, and delightful new Museum Store. You’ll no longer have to leave the campus to eat, drink, or shop! All of these changes have two primary goals: exhibit art in its most meaningful way, and serve the public through engaging programs and exhibitions that educate and inspire. Coming soon, in fact, is a summer exhibition titled Coming Soon: Film Posters from the Dwight M. Cleveland Collection, on view July 12 through Oct. 29, 2019. It comprises more than 200 posters representing comedies, musicals, Westerns, sci-fi thrillers, dramas, and others that date from 1903 to the late 1980s. © Jacek Photo

LEISURE &

RECREATION It won’t take long to discover what longtime residents already know: Living in Palm Beach County provides for a truly amazing lifestyle. With year-round sunshine and plenty of activities covering a wide range of interests, there is something for everyone to enjoy. According to the U. S. Census Bureau, there are more than 1.4 million people residing in one of Palm Beach County’s 38 cities and towns, from Boca Raton to Jupiter. Every family that moves here soon discovers what long-time locals already know: The lifestyle is amazing. Whatever interests you, there’s a related venue nearby. If you admire Mother Nature’s handiwork, you’ll applaud the county’s natural areas and wildlife refuges. If you love animals , whether wild or tame, visit Busch’s Wildlife Sanctuary in Jupiter or the Loggerhead Marinelife Center in Juno Beach, or drive straight into an exotic adventure at Lion Country Safari in West Palm Beach. If you’re a sports fan, you can cheer for your favorite team during a match at the

International Polo Club in Wellington or at a baseball game at Roger Dean Stadium in Jupiter. If you like being outdoors, then head out for the day to one of the many beautiful beaches along the coastline.During the winter months, browse the West Palm Beach Greenmarket with its array of locally harvested foods and produce and enjoy the excitement of the South Florida Fair. Cool off in the swimming lagoon on Peanut Island or make a wet and wild splash at Rapids Water Park in Riviera Beach.

FISHING Fishing ranks a close second to golf in popularity among residents and visitors alike, and there’s an abundant amount of places to cast your line, regardless whether your preference is saltwater or freshwater fishing. Fishing the Atlantic Ocean off Palm Beach County’s shores provides a wide selection of opportunities to snag a prize saltwater catch. Anglers regularly reel in bluefish, blackfin tuna, cobia, dolphin, kingfish, and a variety of snapper. There’s also wahoo and sailfish that roam these waters, the latter of which provides an exhilarating experience and a chance to click a keepsake photo if you’re quick enough with the camera. If you don’t own a boat, there are a slew of saltwater fishing charters/guides throughout the county. Check out the website surfinggator. com for an extensive list. The Palm Beach Post sports section also regularly publishes the local fishing report, which is helpful in determining what is biting when and where. If you prefer to stay closer to shore, you might snag a Spanish mackerel in the surf. Tossing your line from bridges or an inlet jetty can possibly bag you a jack or snook or even a pompano if you’re lucky. If freshwater fishing is more your thing, you owe it to yourself to spend a day on Lake Okeechobee, whose southeastern shoreline forms part of the western edge of Palm Beach County and is only about an hour drive from West Palm Beach. The Big O, as locals call it, is the best largemouth bass fishing lake in the state. It’s the second-largest freshwater lake— next to Lake Michigan—contained entirely within the contiguous 48 states, so there are plenty of spots to anchor or just drift, or you could hire one of the local guides to lead you to the hot spots.

When the waves are good, such as when winter low-pressure systems deliver fairly consistent groundswell toward the beaches, there are some great spots for surfers, most notably Reef Road....

cycling enthusiasts. Three of them offer mountain bike trails for those who are looking for a more challenging or exuberant ride. Dyer Park in West Palm Beach has a 4.7-mile single-track perimeter trail and a 2.4-mile trail called the “Hill” that is built upon a former landfill that has been converted into a winding-climbing trail—the only location in the South Florida region with appreciable climbs and descents. There are also single-track trails at Okeeheelee Park (3.2 miles) just west of West Palm Beach and West Delray Regional Park (2.5 miles) in Delray Beach.

CAMPING The 726-acre family-oriented John Prince Park in Lake Worth has a 48-acre campground situated next to Lake Osborne that includes a ramp to launch watercraft. Peanut Island is a permit/fee-only campground that is surrounded by the Intracoastal Waterway near the Palm Beach/Lake Worth Inlet and is ideal for fishing, boating campers, and snorkeling. The South Bay RV Campground in the western part of the county is a spacious, fully equipped site that includes boat ramp access to Lake Okeechobee.

CANOEING AND KAYAKING

Fishing doesn’t tickle your outdoor fancy? No problem. There are also several recreational parks that offer an array of other outdoor activities, from biking paths to water skiing, all of which are at your beckoning call 365 days a year, thanks to the county’s year-round tropical weather.

A wonderfully scenic paddling experience is the 7.6-mile stretch of the Loxahatchee River from Riverbend Park in Jupiter downstream to Jonathan Dickinson State Park.Whether you’re looking for a oneor two-hour kid-friendly trip or prefer to embark on an all-day adventure, the Loxahatchee offers a variety of options. And even if you rent a canoe or kayak, it’s an inexpensive form of outdoor exercise and fun. For more information, check out canoeoutfittersofflorida.com.

The Atlantic Ocean forms the entire eastern boundary of Palm Beach County, but it’s

not always conducive for great surfing, especially during the summer months, unless there’s a tropical storm or hurricane brewing offshore. However, what it lacks in wave consistency, it makes up for in quality. When the waves are good, such as when winter low-pressure systems deliver fairly consistent groundswell toward the beaches, there are some good spots for surfers, most notably Reef Road, which is tucked away in the north end of the county’s riches real estate. Other good spots are just off the Jupiter Inlet and Juno Beach Pier. Check out surfline.com for the latest surf reports and live video web cams.

TENNIS Most of the numerous private country clubs have tennis courts, as do 12 of the county parks (go to pbcgov.com/parks for locations). One of the nicest full-service public tennis facilities is the Delray Beach Tennis Center near the bustling downtown Atlantic Avenue in the heart of the city. It has 14 clay courts, six hard-surface courts and an 8,200-seat stadium and offers a variety of adult and junior programs, clinics, and camps. The center hosts the ATP World Tour’s Delray Beach Open tournament in February each year. There’s also the Delray Swim & Tennis Club that has 24 clay courts.

WATER SKIING Okeeheelee Park, just west of West Palm Beach, has a nationally recognized competitive water-ski venue that offers five courses for traditional, barefoot, wakeboard, and kneeboard skiing, including one course that is lighted for night skiing. Only USA Water Ski– approved boats are permitted. There’s also the Intracoastal Waterway that stretches the entire north-south length of the county, as well as numerous canals throughout the county. Just be sure to obey the no-wake zones.

Lake Worth Inlet, are great places to anchor out. They also recommend Miami, across from Baker’s Haulover inlet in front of Florida International University; in front of Watson Island by the cruise ships at the port; and the anchorage in Boca Chica Harbor.

Lake Okeechobee, the second-largest freshwater lake entirely within the United States that encompasses 488,000 acres, forms part of the county’s western border and is renowned for its largemouth bass fishing. A handful of other smaller inland lakes also provide boating opportunities, the largest being 540-acre Lake Mangonia. The Palm Beach Yacht Club is a worldclass marina located in the heart of the county in West Palm Beach and is a short

Doug Sease wrote a helpful article called “Guide to Buying a Boat in Florida,” and in it, he highlights several factors to consider when purchasing a vessel and some pertinent information to remember. One of the first things he suggests is that you need to know why you want a boat. Is it to learn how to sail? is it to cruise the inlets? is it primarily for fishing? It is a simple question but will help you focus on exactly what kind of boat to start researching.

distance from the Palm Beach/Lake Worth Inlet. The marina is open to the public on a first-come-first-serve basis and can accommodate yachts up to 150 feet, as well as sport fishing boats and sailing vessels. Loggerhead Marina has five facilities in the county from Jupiter to Lantana, with wet and/or dry storage available. Those who enjoy boating but don’t own or

Another factor to consider when buying a boat in Florida is that the boat itself is just part of the cost. Boats are expensive to own, operate, and maintain. Paying for fuel to power the boat is just one of the costs to owning a vessel. Other expenses include: boat dockage/slips, maintenance on the boat, technology for the boat such as GPS, fuel and transportation of the boat, and insurance.

care to own a vessel can join the Palm Beach Boat Club, which offers a variety of membership plans and has a fleet of boats ranging from luxury motor yachts to center-console fishing boats and cabin cruisers.

BOATING IN FLORIDA The Florida Marine Patrol is now Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission (FWC). Contact them at 850-488-4676 for the latest Boating Safely Education Requirements, information on how to register your boat in Florida, and the minimum equipment requirements.

Another thought to consider, according to Sease, is do you buy new or used? Typically, you can purchase a boat that is used for less money than a new boat, but you must be weary of the boats condition and history. A marine surveyor is recommended and an expert at assessing the condition of a boat. The National Association of Marine Surveyors can provide names of members both by type of boat and the state in which you are making your purchase. You can also ask the loan department of your Florida bank for the names of surveyors the bank uses when making a boat loan.

Also take note of the Anchoring Restrictions in the Florida waterways. A new Florida law eases anchorage restrictions allowing boaters to anchor for an extended period of time in various cities, but check with the local ordinances. Several great anchoring spots, according to floridamarineguide.com, are: Peanut Island in Palm Beach County, as well as across from

Purchasing a new boat will most likely cost more than a similar used boat, but there are advantages It is like purchasing an automobile—you can get it the way you want it. From the electronic instruments to the interior decor, you will be able to choose according to your own tastes. Also you know that the boat does not have any known damage or bad history

associated with it, and it usually comes with a warranty. So, how do you find the boat of your dreams? According to Sease, much depends on the size and kind of boat you want. Smaller boats, whether power or sail, are often advertised in the classified sections of newspapers and online classified sites, such as Boat Trader. If you are searching for a larger boat, visit some local brokers. They usually have a very large database of boats that include vessels not listed on some of the known classified sites. There are also several alternatives to owning your own boat including Boat Renting & Leasing and Charters.Yacht charters are obviously going to be far more expensive that renting a boat for an afternoon outing, but if you are considering chartering the yacht of your getaway dreams, keep these tips in mind: • Use a professional Yacht Broker • Ask about special foods and provisions •  Budget: Charter costs are not allinclusive. Ask about fuel, gratuities, and extra activities. • Number in your party: The maximum number of charter guests allowed by law is 12. • Activities: Ask if there will be equipment for snorkeling, scuba diving, kayaking, etc. Different yachts often specialize in different pastimes.

by Todd McFliker

n February 28th, 2017, FITTEAM Ballpark of the Palm Beaches opened its state-of-the-art facility. Home to the MLB’s Houston Astros’ and Washington Nationals’ spring training, the 160 acres are located just off I-95 in the heart of West Palm Beach. With a main entrance off Haverhill Road, the $150 million complex features a 6,500-fixed-seat stadium designed to accommodate sports and entertainment fans. The grand facility’s 12 full-size and 2 half-size baseball fields are covered in Bermuda grass. Spectators can make themselves comfortable in the shade to watch their teams train on a 360-degree concourse and dine at primo concession stands, including The Capitol Hill Grill and Lone Star Cantina, as well as H-Town Bar and Grill. On the impressive Suite Level, baseball fans can enjoy the stylish atmosphere that holds six private suites. Each premium suite consists of an open-air balcony overlooking the field. Folks can sit back in the air-conditioned atmosphere while enjoying fine dining options, refrigerators, and flat-screen TVs. The deluxe suites are perfect for friends, family, clients, social clubs, and business colleagues to revel in a memorable spring training experience. Every suite requires a 15 guest minimum, and prices start at $900 per suite per single game. A person can have loads of fun in the ballpark’s two posh Party Decks on the Suite Level. These Party Decks, including one just behind first base, were designed for flexible party environments, easily accommodating groups from 40 to 100 people with unlimited food and soft drinks. The Ballpark Classic option comes with burgers, brats, hot dogs, sides, and fresh baked cookies. The Backyard Barbecue menu lists smoked pulled pork, citrus-marinated grilled chicken breasts, brats, sides, and cookies. The

priciest option, The Chef’s Table, begins at $55 per person with upscale menu options, like alligator tail bites, crab cake sliders, ahi tuna, fish tacos, elaborate salads, and decorative desserts. The suites also provide men, women, and children with spectacular panoramic views of the stadium and practice field areas. Enjoying distinguished hospitality service with a devoted suite hostess, visitors can relax in a Florida atmosphere with customized catering options. They can also enjoy an all-you-can-eat menu and a full-service bar while sitting back in an assortment of patio furniture. There are even private bathrooms located on the Suite Level and Party Decks. In the complex’s Field Box, guests make themselves at home with both executive-style seating and exclusive field-level views that bring baseball fans close to the action. The Left Field Bar has 32 brews on tap along with an array of other adult beverages to enjoy while watching America’s pastime.

Its multipurpose fields can also accommodate a variety of music concerts, outdoor festivals, and corporate events such as luncheons and banquets. The large compound consists of City Park, which is a 12-acre contemporary playground with a waterpark, four lighted basketball courts, and a 1.8-mile walking trail that’s open to the public from sunrise to sunset on a daily basis.

ACTIVE ADULTS

+ senior living From upscale retirement communities offering residents social, cultural, travel, and sporting experiences to full-care facilities providing medical assistance, Palm Beach County has an endless amount of options for senior citizen living. Seniors in the Palm Beach County area find that they have a wide variety of housing options that can accommodate their budget, while enjoying their lifestyle in a community that encourages the development and pursuit of their personal interests, goals, and activities. While aging is inevitable, medical advances and healthy lifestyle choices are responsible for increasing the number of years a person may live and improving one’s quality of life. The result is that the demographics of seniors in Palm Beach County have undergone some significant changes: The term “senior” may describe an active person between their late 50s and early 80s. Baby Boomers now entering the senior arena are not only faced with the responsibility of preparing for their own retirement but also with making retirement and

housing plans for their elderly parents.

account personal living expenses, health, interests, and expectations.

Fortunately, the Palm Beach area offers a wide array of options to accommodate the different requirements and lifestyles of its seniors. From upscale retirement communities offering residents a choice of social, cultural, travel, and sporting opportunities, to active seniors, to full-care facilities specializing in caring for the elderly with mental and physical disabilities, there is a senior citizen living solution to fit every need.

TAKING STOCK OF YOURSELF When making retirement housing plans, there’s no denying that the number and diversity of choices available might make the process feel overwhelming. Begin by taking a personal inventory that takes into

Budget Inventory: Make a list of monthly expenses, from rental or housing fees to day-to-day living expenses such as dry cleaning and energy bills, to current or anticipated medical expenses. The point is to be realistic about everyday expenses now, so there are no rude surprises later. Lifestyle Inventory: Active golf enthusiasts, for example, might want close proximity to a local golf course. Those who want to use this time for community involvement might want to live close to schools, churches, or community centers; while others who want to continue developing and pursuing an active lifestyle might want easy access to hike and bike trails or fitness centers.

being realistic on the front end helps determine smart choices that can only benefit later.

SHOULD YOU STAY OR SHOULD YOU GO? Staying Put: Packing up and selling a loved home with so many memories is a difficult decision for many longtime homeowner. One viable option open to senior homeowners is the reverse mortgage, which allows homeowners to turn the value of their home into cash without having to move or repay the loan each month. Guaranteed by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, HUD offers seniors a federally insured private loan as a means to provide financial security and supplement social security, meet unexpected medical expenses, make home improvements, and more. The money from a reverse loan may be paid to the borrower in a variety of ways, from a lump sum to a regular monthly cash advance, as a credit line account, or in any combination of the above. Typically, borrowers do not have to pay anything back until they permanently move out of the home, sell, or pass away. Eligibility for most reverse mortgages requires that the home should be owned outright by the applicant, and that the applicant is 62 years of age or older. Visit AARP’s website and use their Reverse Mortgage Calculator at rmaarp.com. A reverse mortgage offers retirees a distinct advantage. Since most lenders require that

186

borrowers have some sort of income so they can determine a borrower’s ability to pay back the loan, many retired seniors simply cannot qualify for a traditional home equity loan. But a reverse mortgage does not require monthly payments, and therefore no minimum amount of income is required for the loan application. Most reverse mortgages require no repayment as long as the owner, or any co-owner, lives in the home. The best way to determine if a reverse mortgage is the best fit for one’s retirement plan is to honestly assess the following: • How much would the home sell for on today’s market? • What would the cost be to buy and maintain, or rent, a new home? • Would there be any money left over from the purchase of a new home that could be safely invested? • What are the options for downsizing into a less expensive home, renting an apartment, or moving into an assisted living or alternative senior housing situation? Jumping into borrowing money for a reverse mortgage is not advised until looking into all of these senior living options. By being honest about current needs and housing trends, and exploring all the options, seniors can rest easy that they have selected the best housing choice that custom fits their particular budget and lifestyle needs.

Pack It Up: Being realistic about your life, finances and longevity is a must if you decide to move to another community, says Calvin Chamness, real estate agent/developer and builder with JW Development Inc. “You have to think about your health and your future,” advises Chamness, “and expand your thinking beyond the average life expectation. Make sure that you’re close to hospitals and doctors that can provide you with the best care. Do they accept your insurance? All of this needs to be considered when moving from your current circle of friends and community to a new area. This is where a real estate agent can really help a person or family trying to find a retirement situation for someone, as they have access to the most current facts and figures to help you make an informed decision.” “Many who are making these decisions for themselves need to learn to be a little bit selfish,” says Chamness. “I mean, be selfish in a good way,” he laughs. “Move to a community or area that you enjoy. Many of my senior-aged clients are downsizing their lifestyles and selling a home they’ve owned for 30 years. They’re trading down in price range, want to be in a good area and need to select a home that’s a good investment for them. If your health is good, and you’re reasonably active, you also want an area with residents of a similar age and situation—just like you, they’ve raised their kids, have a lot of interests and a lot to talk about, and can help each other.”

SENIOR HOUSING OPTIONS The Department of Housing and Urban Development estimates that private senior care housing can range in cost from $20,000 to $200,000 per year, depending on the services and degree of care offered by a facility. Many senior care housing communities employ medically trained staff and provide housekeeping and meal preparation services, as well as transportation for shopping, medical visits, and social outings. HUD also notes that as Baby Boomers approach their own retirement years, the trend toward creating active retirement communities where residents are involved and physically active will continue, and seniors are encouraged to live as independently as they are capable of handling.

“The time to begin thinking about a retirement community isn’t when you have to have it,” advises Terry Martinez with Parmer Woods Retirement & Assisted Living. “The time to think about it is when you don’t need it. There are not enough retirement communities to keep up with the demand, and you want to be sure that you know your options and what’s available beforehand.” Martinez says that more than 60 percent of her facility’s residents have moved when their adult children also decided to relocate. Martinez credits the Internet as a source for families to learn more about retirement communities, check on specific programs and associated costs.

Many active senior communities have information packets that may be requested in advance, and offer tours of the community itself. A personal visit will give valuable, firsthand information and an opportunity to visit with current residents who can offer their own experiences and provide an insider’s view on the community. Be sure to determine that personal interests and pursuits are offered, such as health and fitness programs,

organized activities, or sports. Other day-to-day living arrangements should also be considered, such as shopping centers and grocery stores within easy walking distance. Are transportation services provided, if needed? Where is the community located in proximity to major health care providers? And what security measures are in place for residents? For ultimate peace of mind, some seniors rent a home under a short-term

“When you’re trying to stay within a particular price range, you want to match your living requirements with services offered,” she says. “If someone’s parents are very independent and don’t need assistance—they just want a meal plan, for example—then the associated costs are much less than for someone’s parents who require more care.” “Remember”, says Martinez, “Medicare generally does not pay for long-term care, only for services deemed medically necessary that are provided by a skilled facility or home health care that meets certain conditions. Medicaid will pay for certain health services and nursing home care for older people with low incomes and limited assets. Optimally, the selected community should have someone on staff familiar with the requirements and criteria of both programs.”

ACTIVE SENIOR HOUSING COMMUNITIES Many seniors find that they simply do not want to worry about the upkeep and maintenance of a home, preferring to spend their leisure time in other ways. Independent seniors in good health may find that they need nothing more than a community where they can fully enjoy pursuing their personal interests. For them, moving to an active independent living retirement community might be the best fit for their budget and lifestyle, where options include renting an apartment or the outright purchase of a property in a senior community.

services, and health care for more than one year, or the balance of their lives. Usually, it is a wise idea for seniors to move into a CCRC sooner rather than later, as most CCRCs require that new residents be capable of living independently when they first move in.

agreement at first to make sure the community provides for their needs and lives up to their expectations.

CONTINUING CARE RETIREMENT COMMUNITIES A Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) offers 360-degree care in residential community for seniors, with a full menu of services and living situations. Residents at a CCRC may move between independent living, assisted living and nursing home care, depending on their individual, changing needs. Seniors electing to live in a CCRC (also known as “Life-Care Facilities” and “Life-Care Communities”) contract with the community in advance for a lifetime commitment to provide care, regardless of their future health and needs. They then live in the residential community for the remainder of their lives, and are placed within a living situation appropriate to their needs and abilities. Seniors or family members of seniors who are concerned about future security find CCRCs a safe bet, addressing any worries about future health problems down the road and alleviating any concerns about hidden costs along

There are a number of contract options offered by CCRCs to seniors and their families. An extensive care contract is the most expensive, but affords the least risk, providing unlimited long-term nursing care at little or no additional cost for as long as nursing home services are needed by the client. A modified care contract comes with medium financial risk, and provides long-term health or nursing services for a specified period of time, after which, the senior or their guardian is responsible for the additional cost. A fee-for-service contract offers an a la carte approach, requiring that residents pay separately for all health and medical services provided by the facility, as well as long-term care. While a fee-for-service contract is the least expensive contract, it does have the highest risk, as costs can run very high for seniors who require unanticipated extensive care later in life. The most common element in a CCRC contract is an entrance fee, where regardless of whether the contract is an extensive, modified or fee-for-service contract, the resident pays a lump sum entrance fee, plus monthly fees thereafter. Another CCRC contract option may require an equity agreement where seniors purchase a condominium or co-op apartment on the property instead of paying an entrance fee. Less commonly found are CCRC contracts where residents pay monthly fees only. Seniors and their families are advised to be sure to read the fine print on the contract carefully to ensure that they are signing an agreement that guarantees the lifetime of services and support over an extended period of time that they are looking for. There are so-called copycat senior-care residences that claim to offer all the benefits of a CCRC, but in reality the services guaranteed by the actual contract fall far short of the claims made by management.

the way. A CCRC generally offers seniors a contract or contracts that provide a continuum of care that includes access to housing,

Before signing a contract with a CCRC, seniors should conduct a thorough review of

PA L M B E A C H R E L O C AT I O N G U I D E – S P R I N G

184_Active Adults_0419.indd 188

|

the facility’s services, operations and finances, and determine that the CCRC is appropriate to their needs, lifestyle and expectations. It’s also a good idea to ask a family attorney or accountant to review the contract as well. If the contract is found agreeable, ask to spend at least one night and two days at the facility, to test drive the community and make sure it is a good fit. Some points to consider include: • Are pets allowed in your residence? • What social, recreational and cultural activities are offered? • Is food prepared onsite? If so, how is it? • Are there fitness facilities onsite? • Is the staff friendly and knowledgeable? • What healthcare and personal care services are available? • What preparations have been made for handling medical and evacuation emergency situations? CCRCs are an excellent option for those who are independent and in good health, but might need some assistance with daily living needs or require skilled nursing care. The variety of housing offered by CCRCs is varied as well, ranging from ultraurban high-rise apartment communities to cottages, townhouses, duplexes or even single-family homes located in a beautiful, natural setting.

ASSISTED LIVING COMMUNITIES An Assisted Living Community (ALC) bridges the gap for seniors who need assistance with daily activities as a nursing home might offer, but wish to live as independently as they are capable of living for as long as possible. Residents in an ALC are unable to live by themselves, but do not require constant supervision. An ALC offers its residents assistance with eating, bathing, dressing, laundry, housekeeping, and keeping track of medications. They often have centers for medical services, but typically do not offer the extensive medical services provided by a nursing home. An ALC is not a substitute for a nursing home, but rather is a stepping stone between complete independence and service provided by a nursing home.

SUMMER 2019

Often, an ALC will create an individualized service plan for seniors upon admission, detailing personal services that will be provided to the resident. This plan is periodically reviewed and updated to provide the correct care each resident receives. Housing in an ALC may be studio or one-bedroom apartments with small kitchen facilities. Typically, ALC housing units have group dining facilities and common areas where residents gather to enjoy social and recreational activities.

An ALC may be licensed as a “Type A” or “Type B” facility, says Martinez. “A facility with a Type A licensing means that the residents are mentally and physically able to vacate the building without assistance within 15 minutes,” says Martinez. “A Type B certification means that residents require assistance to vacate the building within 15 minutes. Our facility is licensed for Type B, as we are also certified to care for residents with Alzheimer’s.” “Your first impression of an Assisted Living Community is the most important,” says Martinez. “What do you see when you get out of the car? How do they take care of the lawn? What is your first impression of the staff? Are the residents properly dressed? How’s the lighting inside the buildings? What activities are available? Are staff members all in the same uniform? Scrubs are not appropriate for an Assisted Living Community, but nametags are important.

later on. A nursing care facility should have clean floors, and a clean smell. Facilities with dirty floors and a sour smell do not put a high priority on cleanliness, and should not be considered. In Florida, ask to see the Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) inspection report. Nursing facilities and Assisted Living Facilities are licensed and inspected by AHCA and they offer the following questions that you should ask when researching and/or visiting a facility: • What deficiencies, if any, were cited during the last inspection? (Ask to see the survey, which is AHCA’s inspection report). • How many residents does each nurse and nurse’s aide care for during each shift? • What do they do about medial services and special therapies? • What transportation arrangements for residents are available? • What special training does the staff have? • What are the policies regarding deposits, refunds, and bed holds? • How much advance notice is provided before increasing charges? • How are personal possessions safeguarded? • What activities are available? (Ask to see the calendar). • What are the designated visiting hours, and are exceptions allowed? • Does the nursing home have a program to limit the use of physical restraints?

specialized care. Assisted Living Facilities offer services and separate facilities for residents with early onset symptoms, but because of the progressive nature of the disease, it may become necessary to transfer the resident to another facility that can provide more appropriate care. Facilities specializing in the treatment of Alzheimer’s and dementia should provide a treatment plan that takes into account not only the resident’s medical needs, but also the needs of the entire family with social services and professional consultations and individualized treatment reviews. Emphasis within the facility should be placed on providing a calming, soothing environment that is sensitive to the needs of the patient. Check out your local Area Agency on Aging (AAA) for more information. AAAs Advocate for older adults living in their area develops community-based long-term care services to meet the needs of those adults, and administer funds to implement services. Most services coordinated by AAAs are provided through community service providers at the local level. Look up member agencies at www.o4ad.org.

ACTIVE ADULT LIVING OR INDEPENDENT LIVING The lure of days lounging by the pool, bronzing at the beach and just escaping brutal northern winters have drawn seniors to Florida for generations. Yet today, it’s more than the Shuffleboard Generation that’s headed to the Sunshine State, and particularly to Palm Beach County. Seniors retiring here are looking for more than cookie-cutter cottages or sterile, impersonal high-rises.

ALZHEIMER’S AND DEMENTIA CARE FACILITIES

Today — with more longevity and greater expectations — seniors relocating to Palm Beach County have much more variety in their lifestyle and housing choices. Whether it’s the active vibe of active adult living communities, the helping hand of an assisted-living facility or the world-class care of the area’s nursing facilities, Palm Beach County can cater to the interests and needs of a wide array of seniors.

TIPS FOR SETTLING IN • Write down three or four goals to achieve in your new city. • Continue all your special family celebrations and traditions. • Share some of your family’s special recipes and cultural aspects with new acquaintances and neighbors. • Keep a log of new experiences and accomplishments. •

Give everyone in the family manageable moving chores (taking care of practical matters will take the edge off homesickness).

• Join an athletic or special interest group. •

Get involved in community and/or religious organizations, especially those that sponsor activities, volunteer efforts, and programs for newcomers.

• Learn about the local government, issues, and politics. • Most importantly, be patient and take one day at a time.

If you have chosen to take a break from your career, consider volunteering your time and talent. Volunteering to a charitable organization is a wonderful effort as well as a way to meet new people and learn more about the community. Volunteer activities add depth to résumés, but the experience needs to be documented so that the service equates to business expertise. Before you again become fully employed, use any free time to enjoy your new community. Refer to the Advice for Volunteers website for guidance in selecting a volunteer position and monster.com for spouse assistance in the Helpful Websites sidebar.

SUCCESSFULLY RELOCATING YOUR SMALLEST MOVERS The majority of relocating families have dependent children. If you are moving with children, you probably researched schools before moving; however, personal school visits will transform the unknown into reality. Visits to new schools to survey the classrooms and meet teachers will go a long way to allay your and your children’s worries about the new environment. Listen carefully to each child’s concerns—every move can bring new issues to the surface. Encourage your children to maintain contact with former friends, even while trying to make new friends. Exchanging photos, having email access and possibly a cell phone with a camera feature can help bridge the gap between old and new friends during the early weeks in a new location.

DEALING WITH CHALLENGES Keep in mind that every stage and every age can bring new challenges. Children who sailed through the last move could be in an entirely different place emotionally and physically for this move, so parents cannot assume that a child will ease into the current move. Routinely share accomplishments and challenges with each other and talk about ways to overcome difficulties. Children need to know that even though the parents are responsible for uprooting them, you both have challenges to face, and you need to work together as a family to solve them.

The following signs may indicate that children are struggling with the adjustment: sudden reading difficulties, changes in attention span or study habits, weight loss or gain, altered enthusiasm or energy levels, strained relationships with you or their siblings, or disturbed sleep patterns. Stay closely involved with your children during the early months in a new location so you know how they are feeling, what they are thinking and who their new friends are. Consider volunteering or get involved with the school so that you can see for yourself how your children are managing. Both adults and children need the stability and comfort

of established routines, so keep the same rules, bedtimes, mealtimes, allowances, and expectations that you had before moving. Refer to the “Tips for Settling In” sidebar for more great info to help both you and the kids.

CHILDREN AND SAFETY When children are in an unfamiliar environment, they can easily forget basic safety rules. The following are always a good reminder: •

Keep close to a parent, and take an adult’s hand in crowded areas.

• •

Carry personal identification and phone numbers to contact parents at all times. Know where to meet in case families become separated.

Review street crossing safety guidelines.

Make sure children understand how to get help safely if they get lost.

MEDICAL AND SAFETY PRECAUTIONS It is a fact that moving places additional stress on individuals and consequently, they are more vulnerable to accidents or illness, not to mention unexpected flare-ups of chronic health conditions. If an emergency occurs, every second counts; therefore, as a precaution, locate hospitals, pharmacies and physicians that will meet your family’s needs before an emergency arises. Learn the procedures, telephone numbers, and access codes for emergency care and always carry medical identification with you. Also, in an emergency, you may forget your new telephone number and/ or address, so before an emergency arises, program them into your cell phone and place written notes near each telephone

in your home, as well as basic directions to your residence. Directions will not only be useful for family members in the early days at your new home, but they will also assist babysitters and visiting relatives.

EMBRACE THE MOVE Whether or not you have children, or you are married, single or retired, relocating to a new community can ultimately become a wonderful and enriching experience. The suggestions in this article have worked for many relocating families, and they can also help your family become comfortable in your new home. As an aside, when people learn that I’ve moved 19 times, the response is often “What place did you like best?” My answer is always the same: “Where my family was.” I wish you all the best!

NEWCOMER INFORMATION Here is some information such as local utility providers, vehicle registration locations, and voter registration that might help the settling in process go more smoothly. To start becoming acclimated to your new community, reference the Palm Beach Relocation Guide and other community resources for all the fun things to do and places to go! SETTING UP UTILITIES Call a couple of weeks ahead to have utilities connected at your new home the day before or the day of your scheduled move-in (resources for phone, Internet, cable, gas, electric and other utilities are listed below). Check to make sure the utilities have been connected and follow up on any delays. Make sure your phone is connected, if you have a land line. Ideally, you should have the phone company hook it up the day before you move in. Most moving companies advise, that to prevent possible damage, televisions, stereos, computers, other electronic equipment, and major appliances should not be used for 24 hours after delivery, allowing them time to adjust to room temperature. Make sure you have payment on hand for your moving charges. Unless other billing arrangements were made in advance (like with a new company if you’re relocating in a corporate move), most moving companies require payment upon delivery in cash, traveler’s checks, money order, or cashier’s check. Personal checks are usually not accepted.

LICENSE & REGISTRATION, PLEASE Moving, be it across town or to another state, is a detail-oriented process that is further complicated by the fact that some laws and regulations are, more often than not, different in a resident’s new home than one’s old home. This fact is particularly true when it comes to getting a new driver’s license, vehicle registration, and vehicle titling. Never fear: We’ve provided some basic information to help you get going in the Palm Beach County area.

Moving can be a stressful time—but with the Palm Beach Relocation Guide, it doesn’t have to be. On these pages, find tips and tricks for making your transition to Palm Beach County as seamless as possible. Welcome, Floridian! “Organization is the key to having a great moving experience,” says Charlie Morse, general manager of Ward North American Van Lines. “Any move is stressful, but being prepared makes all the difference in whether you look back later on your move as a wonderful introduction to your new home or as a very traumatic time.” Morse says that the best moves are the ones that are planned well in advance before moving day. Using an experienced, professional moving service can help you maximize the most of your time, and alleviate your moving anxieties by helping you anticipate potentially tricky situations. In addition to their expert packing services, professional moving companies often offer additional care protection up front before the big move. “Check with your homeowner’s policy to make sure your items are covered in case something unforeseen happens,” advises Morse. “If they aren’t, you can often buy additional coverage from your insurance company or moving insurance from us. That way, your goods are insured against anything that could happen during transit—including road accidents, tornadoes, lightning and even van fires.” Remember that a packer’s job is to do exactly that: pack. “The packing team doesn’t pick and choose what goes, they just pack everything,” explains Morse. “They don’t have any bias on what you want to take or not. Often when people do their own packing, they spend valuable time thinking, ‘Do I need this or not?’ It takes our people less time because they don’t worry about that. So, unless you tell them otherwise, everything goes.

ON YOUR MARK: A FEW WEEKS BEFORE YOU MOVE Get Rid of It: Once you’ve decided to go for it, make a major purge of all your unnecessary goods and possessions. Have a garage sale, donate your unwanted items for a tax write-off, and advertise them in the newspaper or on craigslist.com. Getting rid of extra things you don’t need makes for a cleaner move, and drops the shipping weight and bulk. Meet and Greet: If you’re using a moving company, an agent will meet with you at your home and conduct a survey of the items you want to move to your new home. Some of the points your moving agent will review with you include the items you want to move and the items you will leave behind, items that will go into storage, care and handling of items of exceptional value, and items that will need to be disassembled because of size or access out of your residence.

GET SET: A FEW DAYS BEFORE YOU MOVE Take & Grab Party: Instead of filling up the landfill with perfectly good condiments and other food items, invite friends over to “take & grab” whatever they want from your fridge, freezer, and pantry. Do you really want to transport those one-third-full bottles of alcohol across the country? A “Take & Grab Party” is a fun way to get together one last time before the move and responsibly discard some things that won’t be going with you, like plants.

As a result of the “everything goes” philosophy of packing, be sure to keep your personal items that you want to take with you on your trip in a “safety zone.” Tell the packers and the movers that these items are going with you and not to pack them.

Big Ticket Items: Disconnect, defrost, and clean refrigerators and freezers, empty the evaporation pan and drain the water reservoir of the automatic icemaker. Leave the door of your fridge, freezer, or washing machine open at least 24 hours before loading to allow all moisture to evaporate. Make sure that your stove has been cleaned and all pots and pans have been removed.

As for making sure your possessions arrive on time, Morse says you can relax: “Many of our trucks are equipped with GPS tracking systems, so all they have to do is plug in your new address and they’ll find you. And the driver will give you his phone number so you can keep in touch with him in transit along the journey. We do our best to get your possessions from Point A to Point B safely.”

Electric Boogaloo: Electronic equipment requires a little extra tender loving care. If possible, pack your electronics in their original cartons and packing material. If not available, make sure your mover provides professional packing materials. Disconnect your wiring and code it with colored tape to make reinstallation easier at your new location. Back up important files on your computer’s hard drive, and if it has a CD/DVD drive, make sure it’s disc-free.

RELOCATING A

HAPPY PET

Your pet is probably as excited as you are to move to Palm Beach County! Beaches, trails, dog parks, and an abundance of off-leash recreation options await. Relocating is tough enough without having Fido or Fluffy out of sorts, but there are some things you can do to make sure your pet’s transition is a walk in the park. First and foremost is getting your pet to your new home safely—and happily. Whether you’re traveling by plane, train, or automobile, make sure you pack the basics for your pet just like you’d pack an overnight bag for yourself and your family—that includes food, water, medicine, and any special toys or blankets. If you’re going by car, plan for frequent stops for food, water, and bathroom breaks for your pet and for yourself. Resist the temptation to feed your pet while you’re in the car, otherwise you might have an unpleasant accident to deal with somewhere between Roseburg and the Rose City. According to pettravelcenter.com, good-to-have items while traveling include a portable kennel, pet travel bowls, and any special feeders. They also recommend that your pet’s vaccinations are current before you travel— it’s one less thing you have to worry about when you get to your destination. Next, it’s absolutely imperative that your pet has proper identification. If your pet doesn’t have a tag or a collar and happens to get out, it could be difficult for your pet to get back home. If your dog or cat won’t wear a collar, a microchip surgically implanted as the best way to identify a lost pet. Even after your pet gets used to your new neighborhood, a microchip is still the best way to avoid losing your pet. The microchip is your best chance to get your pet home safely, since animal shelters and other pet centers always scan stray pets to see if there’s a microchip. Finding a new veterinarian for your pet should also be at the top of the list. Check with your local pet stores, Humane Societies, and animal shelters, or find a vet through the Palm Beach County Veterinarians Society at pbvs.info or go to veterinarians.com/fl/palm-beach. Neighbors with pets are a great resource and can also give you valuable pet tips specific to your neighborhood. It’s also a great reason to get to know your new neighbors. If you’d rather leave it up to the professionals, Pet Relocation provides personalized door-to-door pickup and delivery of your pet anywhere in the world. petrelocation.com

Precious Car Go! If your moving company is transporting your vehicle, make sure your car has no obvious fluid leaks and secure your battery in the mounting bracket. Have your car cleaned so that movers can perform a valid quality inspection on moving day (a dirty car might limit your ability to file a claim on major damage). Make sure that your gas tank has at least one-eighth tank of fuel and disconnect, disable, or turn off all alarm systems. Remove all non-permanent luggage racks, bike racks, or ski racks on the exterior of your car and take out any personal items from your car’s interior. And last but certainly not least, have an extra set of car keys and alarm remote ready to hand over to the moving team, as well as a working phone number where you may be contacted. Make Advance Reservations: Depending on where you live, you might need to obtain a parking permit for the moving truck or van. Also, if you live in a highrise building, you should check to see if you need to reserve use of the elevator. Smile and File: Gather and organize your important documents in advance and have them ready to go; you never know if you might need access to them in your new home. Never place these items in the trunk of your car. A short list of documents to take with you includes birth certificates, life insurance policies, medical and dental records, real estate documents, and school records. Other helpful items include an address book, appliance manuals, appraisals for high-value items, and your copy of the household goods descriptive inventory.

GET GOING! THE DAY OF THE MOVE Get in the Zone: The safety zone, that is.

REGISTER TO VOTE! Make sure to exercise your right to vote. Registration to vote in is easy. Just pick the method that works best for you! HOW TO REGISTER You must be 18 years old, a U.S. citizen, and legal resident of Florida to register to vote. If you are 16 years old, you may pre-register and receive your card in the mail after your eighteenth birthday. You are NOT entitled to register to vote if you have been adjudicated mentally incapacitated with regard to voting in this or any other state and you have not had your right to vote restored pursuant to law, or, if you have been convicted of any felony by any court of record and you have not had your right to vote restored pursuant to law. If you met the above requirements, you may register or vote in Palm Beach County by either: 1. Going online at pbcelections.org OR 2. In Person/Telephone You may obtain a voter registration application in person or by telephone by contacting: The Supervisor of Elections Main office: 240 South Military Trail West Palm Beach, FL 33415 Office Number – (561) 656-6200 Or you may apply at any of these locations: Glades Office Building Branch Office Main Office West Palm Beach Northeast County Courthouse Branch Office Southeast PBC Administrative Complex Branch Office After completing the voter registration application, it can be mailed or delivered to the Supervisor of Elections office. A voter identification card will be mailed approximately two to three weeks after the application is processed. Be aware of the following if you decide to register to vote by mail: As a result of the enactment of the 2002 Help America Vote Act (HAVA) by the United States Congress, Florida law (97.0535, Florida Statutes) now has new requirements for anyone who registers by mail. As of January 1, 2003, if you are a new voter in Palm Beach County, you registered by mail and have not voted in an election for Federal office in this county, you must present a current valid photo identification or a copy of a current utility bill, bank statement, paycheck or other government documents that shows your name and address. If you wish to vote by mail, you must submit with you ballot the same documentation stated above.

Anything that you wish to take with you and not have packed should be placed within an area that you identify to the movers as the “Do Not Pack/Do Not Move Zone.” This would include anything from your important papers and documents, luggage, medications, travel clothing and toiletries, and favorite toys for the kids. Create a First Night Care Kit: Separate the items you will need the most when you first arrive in your new home and have the movers pack and load them separately so they will be the first to unload in your new home. If you are putting items into storage and you need special items for a temporary living situation, clearly mark and separate these items before the mover arrives. Some items to consider for your First Night Care Kit include alarm clocks, a can opener, first-aid items, clean sheets and pillow cases, toiletries, a flashlight, extension cords, basic tools, and hardware from disassembled furniture. A Note about Utilities: Call a couple of weeks ahead to have utilities connected at your new home the day before or the day of your scheduled move-in (resources for phone, Internet, cable, gas, electric and other utilities are listed in this section). Check to make sure the utilities have been connected, and follow up on any delays. Make sure your phone is connected, if you have a land line. Ideally, you should have the phone company hook it up the day before you move in. Electronics: Most moving companies advise, that to prevent possible damage, televisions, stereos, computers, other electronic equipment, and major appliances should not be used for 24 hours after delivery, allowing them time to adjust to room temperature.
