PBCC presentation

Last night was a presentations by students, from the college down the street, expressing their visions of the future in Lake Worth.  It was a class assignment and site specific, the beach property.  So, we residents who came had the opportunity to dream and rearrange in our heads certain elements of the students project to fit into our vision of Lake Worth.   Each presentation had kernels of possibilities, that could be implemented.  Five square miles, 35 thousand people, 26 languages spoken in Lake Worth.  How to connect, be inclusive and eco friendly.   Part of the points made were, to entertain, inform via an eco system and inspire sustainability.  They had wonderful examples where communities that understood had undertaken some of these futuristic plans.   Also connect physically, culturally, and globally.   This part I liked a lot.  Who doesn’t want to see the availability of a city wide Wi-Fi.  Is this dreaming?  An App for Lake Worth, museums have them as does Amelia Island.  Loved the suggestion of rental boat homes on the inter-coastal and why not.   We are in the middle of PB Co.  so a car share (smart car shown) like a bike share, not so far fetched.  A video connect to our sister cities, in England, Finland, Haiti and Poland.  Don’t we already have a live feed from the beach?  This direct quote  resonated with me. “scared of what you don’t know”  regarding, sharing of our cultural diversity, connecting via sharing.There was an actual photo montage of a greenway through our downtown. Nicely done and a follow up image of Lincoln Rd. which once upon a time, was a two way street.  Love the idea of a greenway around the city, with putt putt courses, with shade pavilions and bike paths and promenades,  “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams ” Eleanor Roosevelt
