City of Delray Beach
Planning and Zoning

In the southeast corner of Palm Beach County on the Atlantic seashore, a village by the sea that began as an agricultural community in 1895 has become one of Florida's most popular destinations for visitors, new families and seasonal residents. The City of Delray Beach encompasses slightly over 16 square miles with a permanent population of nearly 65,000 and growing. Over the past decade, renewal and re-development efforts in Delray Beach have resulted in recognition as the All-America City in 1993 and 2001, a designated Preserve America Community in 2008, the Blue Wave designation for our clean and beautiful beaches and hailed by city planners around the nation as a model for growth management. All these accolades can be attributed to the significant involvement of the residents of Delray Beach. Every citizen of this City can claim authorship to an unparalleled quality of life in a very diverse community that works in concert for an even better future.
