Non-Essential Business & Certain Parks Are Open in Palmetto Bay
Village of Palmetto Bay
May 20, 2020
As part of its "Moving to a New Normal" process, Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez issued Emergency Order 23-20 allowing for the re-opening of non-essential businesses throughout the county, including Palmetto Bay, with some restrictions. To assist business owners in developing their own reopening protocols, the County Mayor has published this "Initial Reopening Plan" detailing the rules under which businesses may operate.
Palmetto Bay has been making contact with commercial owners within the Village to provide the county plan, along with information detailing the specific protocols that apply to their business type.
During a Virtual Special Council that took place on May 14th, the Village Council voted to reopen the two main parks in the Village; Coral Reef Park and Palmetto Bay Park. You can watch this short video by Mayor Cunningham informing residents of the meeting discussion and outcome.
Following Council direction, Interim Village Manager Greg Truitt issued Emergency Order 03-20 for the reopening of the facilities and to outline the specific uses allowed and the new rules for the parks. At this time, the Village is considering allowing bicycling and skating on the paths.
All other parks remain closed. All park staff has been assigned to the two open parks to enforce the park rules and provide assistance to park visitors.
Village Hall is closed to the public. However building permits and zoning applications may be dropped off at Village Hall, Monday through Friday, from 8:30 am to 2:30 pm. Click the previous links for details.
