City of Palm Bay Announces Phased Re-Opening Details

The City of Palm Bay will launch a phased re-opening of City facilities. Beginning with a soft re-opening on Monday, May 18th, public access to City facilities will be available by appointment only, where necessary. The City will continue to provide services virtually where possible to limit person-to-person interaction. As outlined in Florida’s re-opening guidelines,

City of Palm Bay facilities will reopen with a slow, steady, and safety-conscious approach to ensure that proper safety and social distancing guidelines are observed. The City of Palm Bay will limit building occupancy to 25% or less. The Phase 1 reopening plan will remain flexible to allow adjustments to be made based on new developments that may impact the health and safety of the community. During the initial re-opening phase, citizens are encouraged to continue utilizing the City’s online service options and contacting staff by telephone or email.

The City’s Facilities Department installed new protective measures such as sneeze guards in areas visited regularly by the public as well as, intercoms at the two main entrances on the north and south side of the City Hall Annex building located at 120 Malabar Road SE. Signage and floor markings have also been fitted throughout City buildings to encourage social distancing.

5-Year Consolidated Plan

Post Date:05/06/2020 2:00 PM

In preparation for the City of Palm Bay’s upcoming 5-Year Consolidated Plan for FY 2021-2025 (October 1, 2021 through September 30, 2026), the City is requesting participation in the Community Needs Assessment Survey which will inform the priority needs within Palm Bay.

The City receives approximately $778,726 in federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds and $303,693.35 in HOME funds each year. Eligible activities for CDBG funding must meet one of the three national objectives: 1) benefiting low- and moderate-income citizens, 2) aiding in the elimination of slum and blight, or 3) meeting an urgent need (i.e. national disaster).  Similarly, HOME funds are intended to facilitate affordable housing.

The City wants to hear from you!

Consider the needs in your community and how they can be improved.  Rate the level of need for each of the following items and circle the priority number that best applies with the number “1” as the lowest need and “4” as the highest need.

Responses are required by Friday, May 31, 2020.
