Boynton Beach officials want to name park after late police officer

BOYNTON BEACH - The city’s first and only dog park is named Boynton Village Park and Dog Park but officials want to rename it to honor a former police officer.

Joseph Crowder died at 44 in December after suffering a heart attack while exercising. On Tuesday, city officials discussed renaming the park after Crowder.

BOYNTON BEACH — The Boynton Village Park and Dog Park is a place where age barriers disappear while millennials and seniors converse about their furry pets, where residents can sit in a shaded spot in a gazebo and where the stresses of the world can seem distant if only for a short time, its developers say.

Tamarac Village is a go

Tamarac has moved closer to making its vision of a downtown a reality.

The City Commission signed an agreement with a master developer, JKM Developers, for the construction of Tamarac Village, along Northwest 57th Terrace between Pine Island Road and Northwest 94th Avenue. The project, which will be spread over 23 acres, will include 13 buildings comprising 400 residential rental units, 35,000 square feet of commercial space and a 0.79-acre public park.

 

Tamarac Village: Closer to Becoming a Reality

The long-awaited Tamarac Village project just got one step closer last week after the commission voted to approve a lease agreement with a major real estate development company.

Terms of the ground lease agreement with JKM Developers will be 99 years with a $250K deposit following the effective date and a second deposit of $750K on or before the commencement date.

"It's a go," said Mayor Harry Dressler. "It's been 10 years in the making. The city needs a place where people can live and dine and play on the grass with their children. There's no other place in the city that has the amenities that has what this will have."
