The city of Boynton Beach has given the final OK for the $118 million Town Square project.
“For so many years the city of Boynton Beach has not had a place to go to on Friday and Saturday night,” said Boynton Beach Mayor Steven Grant.
The project will completely change the area around the current city hall and library; both will be rebuilt along with a new fire and police station, a parking garage, and apartments.
“Boynton needs (a) little shot in the arm it certainly does, we can be that bridge from Lake Worth and Delray,” said Patrick Micheal Griffin who lives in Delray Beach.
Construction for the project is set to begin in July. The city building will come down and the current offices will be relocated during construction.
“For a little inconvenience it will make sure this entire project gets done in the next 3 years,” said Boynton Beach City Manager Lori LaVerriere.
The goal is to get the new city hall and library done by next September.
