Case Studies of this Municipality
Established in 2002, the Village of Palmetto Bay sought to construct a Village Hall facility that would not only serve the needs of its residents and visitors, but one that was environmentally friendly. Led by the Vision of Mayor Eugene Flinn, the Village pursued the goal to be the first Village Hall facility in Florida to achieve Platinum LEED certification. Platinum LEED is the highest recognition a building can received.
In 2008, the Village pursued a program that sought to increase the tree canopy within our community. The desire was to reduce the heat island affect, promote the greening of the Village, and improve the overall esthetic of the Village. The initiatives that were pursued resulted in the Village being designated a Tree City USA 2008. The Village continues to enjoy that designation to this day.
