Old Palm City CRA

The Community Redevelopment Area Plan for Old Palm City was adopted in April 2002. The Vision for the Old Palm City CRA includes the following seven (7) components:

  1. Retrofit Mapp Road;
  2. Enhanced Neighborhood Streets, Sidewalks and Bikeways;
  3. Old Palm City Greenway;
  4. Develop Gateways, Signs and Historic Markers;
  5. Lead the Design of the Indian Street Bridge, 36th Street and CR 714 Corridor;
  6. Reconnect the Neighborhoods North of Martin Downs Blvd.
  7. and Upgrade Infrastructure.

The Old Palm City Neighborhood Advisory Committee (NAC) meets regularly at the Palm City Community Center on Cornell Avenue and provides advice and recommendations to the Community Redevelopment Agency regarding the implementation of projects adopted within the Old Palm City Community Redevelopment Plan.

Ripple Stormwater EcoArt Project

An important and exciting project is happening in our Old Palm City neighborhood that will combine art, science and YOU – the community!  “Ripple… as a drop of water becomes a river” is a unique combination of stormwater treatment, artistic elements and community engagement.

Ripple will reconnect the Old Palm City neighborhood with the St. Lucie River at three distinct sites along SW 28th and 29th Streets. Ripple is part of only a handful of projects across the country to receive grant funding from the National Endowment for the Arts.

This stormwater treatment project, integrated with artistic and educational elements, will not only enhance and beautify our community, but will be an environmental asset as well!

We experience things in multiple ways using our senses of sight, sound, smell, taste and touch. We often take these senses for granted; yet these too can be celebrated as we recognize how they help us reflect, connect and navigate our world.

Recording what our senses tell us can be both reflective and bring us a more conscious understanding of the environment around us. As you traverse the parcels, complete our online sensory tour below!

Martin County and your Old Palm City Neighborhood Advisory Committee are working to enhance Mapp Road into another beautiful streetscape in Martin County.

The Mapp Road Town Center Project will complete the vision with generous sidewalks, landscaping, decorative streetlights, trash/recycling receptacle, curb and gutter drainage, on-street parking and a well-connected corridor that safely accommodates vehicles, bicycles and people.
