About our Village
The Village of Palmetto
Bay is a vibrant community of more than 25,000 residents
who enjoy its beautiful surroundings and family-oriented atmosphere.
Situated immediately west of beautiful Biscayne Bay, Palmetto
Bay offers unique recreational opportunities and bay access
for all to enjoy! Additionally, the Village is home to excellent
public schools, all of which have annually earned the grade “A” under
the State of Florida’s A+ Plan, as well as exceptional
Village residents enjoy the benefits of an extensive park
system composed of six park facilities offering a myriad of
opportunities ranging from active to passive, recreation to
preservation, ground activities to water recreation, and a
soon to be constructed neighborhood library. Its commercial
corridor along South Dixie Highway is easily and quickly accessible
from any location within Village limits. Restaurants, lodging
and markets are a few of the service industries available to
our residents and visitors.
Incorporated on September 10, 2002, the
Village of Palmetto Bay is the 33rd municipality in Miami-Dade
County. The Village extends from the centerline of S.W.
136th Street, south to the centerline of S.W. 184th Street,
expanding west to the centerline of South Dixie Highway,
including the center island, and east to Biscayne Bay.
This year, the Village celebrates its Fifth Anniversary as a duly incorporated municipality! In this short span of time, the Village has succeeded in building community character by creating a distinct community identity through the installation of new street signs and completing traffic & beautification projects, improving customer service and facilitating access to government services, building a better police force, and improving and expanding Village park facilities for the enjoyment of all residents, dubbing us the "Village of Parks."
