AN ARTS PLAN FOR DOWNTOWN LAKE WORTH.
A culturally and architecturally rich community, Lake Worth is home to one of the most ethnically diverse populations in Florida. Known as the geographic and artistic center of Palm Beach County, the city embraces many different cultures and lifestyles. City leadership has undertaken a series of initiatives to achieve economic vitality through arts and culture—from establishing LULA and the Lake and Lucerne arts district, to building artist housing with support of a Housing Urban Development (HUD) grant.
To build on these efforts, the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County (CCPBC), headquartered here in Downtown Lake Worth, and the Lake Worth Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA), with participation by the City of Lake Worth, spearheaded development of an Arts and Culture Master Plan for Downtown Lake Worth, funded by a grant from Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties. The resulting plan—this document—aims to boost arts and culture and helps create a thriving Downtown, and thereby enhance quality of life for all of Lake Worth residents and visitors.
