This week on the City Voice Podcast I talk with Friederike Mittner, the City of West Palm Beach Historic Preservation Planner.

We talk about why the historic preservation of historic homes and commercial buildings is more than a permitting nuisance.  

She outlines:

  • Economic benefits
  • Job creation
  • Environmental benefits
  • Increasing property values in a variety of West Palm Beach neighborhoods.
  • Paint color guidelines?
  • Tax exemptions that come with your remodel
  • And more…

On this week’s City Voice Podcast, we discuss the Saturday, April 21 Northwood Village Grand Opening. It’s a kind of celebration of Northwood Village but the focus is on eight new businesses.  (see below for business names and links)

The day will be filled with discounts and deals for shoppers, music and great food. Also eight ribbon cuttings by West Palm Beach Mayor Jeri Muoio.

Personally, I’m excited about this event because I know how much hard work went into it by business owners, residents, and the City Of West Palm Beach. Events like this build businesses but over the long term, they build community. You going and supporting this event makes our community stronger. 

My Guests this week:

Lourdes Sanchez, owner of Om Yoga and Wellness at 410 Northwood Rd in WPB. Lourdes is also the Executive Director for Northwood Main Street. Lourdes gives us the 411 on this Saturday’s Grand Opening event!

Will Davis owns The Day By Day Shoppe (at 513 Northwood Rd in WPB) along with his husband Matt ChambersWill explains why they opened in Northwood Village and what Frank Sinatra and his Mom had to do with it.
