Residents Can Comment At District Meetings Via Email

BOCA RATON – In an effort to allow the community to safely provide their input on local events and actions, the Greater Boca Raton Beach and Parks District is expanding the avenues for public comments at meetings.

As concerns about the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) grow, anyone interested in avoiding public gatherings but still desiring to address the Monday, March 16, District meeting can do so by sending an email to [email protected]

All emails will be read into the public record during the public comments portion of the meeting. In keeping with the five minute maximum time allotted to those speaking in person, emails should be no longer than 600 words. 

Emails need to be received by 4 p.m. the day of the meeting.

At this time, residents wishing to address the commission in person can still do so as normal. The District continues to monitor recommendations from health organizations and, if necessary, will adjust its policies further according to proposed guidelines. 

Five major topics of discussion are on the agenda for Monday's meeting – two pertaining to Ocean Strand.

The District will discuss a proposed declaration written to ensure that the Ocean Strand property, which reaches from the beach to the Intracoastal on A1A, North of the Palmetto Park Rd., remains a public park in perpetuity. Commissioners are also expected to address the budget for the Ocean Stand project.

The entire agenda is available on

District meetings are held the first and third Mondays of each month at the Boca Raton Swim and Racquet Center at 21618 St. Andrew's Blvd. Meetings begin at 5:15 p.m.
