Boynton Beach’s 16-acre Town Square redevelopment plan received another nod of approval from city commissioners, but not from all.
Commissioner Mack McCray voted against the project because he doesn’t know how the city will pay for it and Commissioner Joe Casello is still not happy with the location of the new police station at High Ridge Road and Gateway Boulevard, away from the city’s downtown.
Staff plan to host a meeting March 13 and will present the final budget, costs and schedule. The Palm Beach Post previously reported the city has to come up with about $133 million.
Town Square, a private/public partnership, is about four blocks off Boynton Beach Boulevard east of Interstate 95 where the historic high school, library and police station are. It will be transformed into a town center with modern public buildings such as a city hall and fire station, a 40,000-square-foot amphitheater, parks, parking garages and apartments, a hotel and retail space.
