URGENT: Donations needed NOW to fight group homes expansion

Goal: $30,000 by Friday, June 21st. Dedicated PayPal account created.

A special committee of residents, along with the PBCE Landowners Association Board, is aggressively working to fight these zoning applications to dramatically increase the size of group homes that currently provide rehabilitative services to adolescent boys in PBCE. The owner's applications request an increase from 6 beds per home to up to 14 beds per home, plus counselors, or possibly 18-20 occupants per home at one time. Approval of these applications would fundamentally change the nature of PBCE as a single family residential community.

We are on a very tight timeline, with a lot of work required to fully support our position, leading up to the Zoning Commission public hearing on July 3rd and the Board of County Commissioners public hearing on July 25th. We need your financial support now more than ever!

We have been working with highly regarded subject-matter experts, who have generously offered their time at no charge to assist us with planning the best strategy for the zoning approval process and developing key arguments. We are now at a point where we need to retain paid legal and zoning experts to represent us going forward.

In order to have the best chance of success at the upcoming public hearings, we need to raise $30,000 as quickly as possible to be able to retain these experts.

A special PayPal account for online donations has been created and can be accessed via the link below or Donate button on this website. PayPal is the fastest, easiest, and most secure way to make your donation. Any donations made will be used exclusively for this call to action. We will be very grateful for any donations, but for those with the financial means, we are asking for $100 or more, in order to ensure that we are able to attain this short-term urgent need.

Donations may also be made by check payable to PBCE Landowners Association. Please write 'CLF' in the memo section and mail to PBCELA, PO Box 30638, Palm Beach Gardens, FL 33420.

URGENT: Please donate TODAY. Thank you!!!

Welcome to the Palm Beach Country Estates Landowners Association website! Check this site often for the latest news on what's happening in the area.

Palm Beach Country Estates is a 2000 acre suburban community just west of I-95 off of Donald Ross Road in Palm Beach County. Custom single family homes are situated on a minimum of 1-acre wooded properties. There are approximately 1500 homes built.

The Association, founded in 1980, provides a unified voice for the community when addressing issues that impact the quality of life in Palm Beach Country Estates. The Association is entirely voluntary and run by landowners and has no authority to tell landowners what they can or cannot do. Officers are not compensated in any way for their service.

Meetings are held bi-monthly, usually on the second Tuesday of the month. A newsletter, "Countryside Living", is periodically published.

Membership in the Association gives landowners a vote and a voice and the voluntary dues ($40) help pay the various expenses we incur providing services for the community. Please see the "About Us" page for a more detailed list of what the we do.
