CNU Florida is proud to welcome our newest regional group: CNU of the Palm Beaches. This local group formed last year, with the goal of highlighting affordable housing, transportation and legislative policy that addresses rising sea levels. 2019 saw its first foray into educational events including a presentation on the town center and walking tour with local officials in the master-planned community, Abacoa, located in Jupiter, Florida. The goal was to introduce members to New Urbanist places and ideas. The chapter met to formulate a list of big-picture ideas and goals it wants to promote. In February, they will create a strategic plan to transform those ideas into action steps.
CNU of the Palm Beaches is making its presence known to county and regional governing boards while partnering with groups like the American Planning Association, Institute of Transportation Professionals and local group, Connect West Palm Beach. A busy 2020 is planned with outreach and education including an Earth Day celebration. To find out more, visit their Facebook page or follow them on Instagram.
