"JUST THE FACTS"
Updated on December 11, 2015
The following is a revised schedule for the Clubhouse that was discussed at the December 10, 2015 Village Council Meeting:
January 28, 2016 - There will be a Workshop regarding proposed amenities at the Country Club Clubhouse and pool areas which will include projected scope, costs and financing.
January 30th - February 5th, 2016 - Charrette - Country Club scope and costs will be available for discussion, modification, additions and opinions.
February 11, 2016 - Workshop to define scope of Country Club design so that Phase II - Design of the Country Club Clubhouse and other improvements may begin.
February 25, 2016 - Possible Workshop if Village Council feels that more discussion is warranted.
Architect Brian Idle, Director of Golf Casey Mitchell, and Village Manager Jim Kelly met with Jack Nicklaus this morning regarding the location of the Clubhouse. Mr. Nicklaus recommended that the Clubhouse be built on its current site because it is the center of all activity. He feels that placement of the Clubhouse on any other site would be disruptive to play on the golf course.
From the beginning it was the direction of Village Council that we would talk to Jack Nicklaus, and that if he did not support the option to build a Clubhouse on the water, that option would be withdrawn from consideration. Therefore, the Village will now move forward with plans using only the current Clubhouse site location.

Here is an update regarding the North Palm Beach Country Club.
From October 19th through October 28th, Consultant Rick Norton met with the following Advisory Boards and Committees: Golf, Audit, Recreation, Waterways and the Planning Commission.Minutes and Recordings are available on the Village Website under the respective Committees as well as through the Village Clerk’s office.Architect Brian Idle, Rick Norton and I met with residents of North Palm Beach in five different meetings to seek their input regarding the amenities, services, and facilities they would like to see provided at the Country Club.Minutes from these meetings are below:
Between now and January 20, 2016, we are seeking resident input through public meetings and an online survey that will be ready in December of 2015. From January 30, 2016 through February 5, 2016 a Charrette will be held in the Village Council Chambers for all residents to view, question, discuss, and help shape the scope of the Master Plan and Country Club Improvements.
This information will then be reviewed and discussed by the Village Council in one or more workshops.Only after the above will the Council make any final decisions.
Thus, no final decisions will be made by the Village Council regarding the Clubhouse, pool deck, splash park or Master Plan until February 2016 or later.
My responsibility as the Village Manager of North Palm Beach is to vet potential uses of the Country Club property, collect essential data and seek as much resident input as possible so that the Village Council has all the information they need to make well informed decisions.
