         Palm City is the
       happening place in Martin
       County!  We continue to
       work to create our own
       walkable downtown area.
       Mapp Road is becoming
       the center piece for our
       downtown.  The new road
       design and landscaping
       along with the 10-foot sidewalks make it THE place to
       be in Palm City. Mapp Road connects the two bridges that
       are the gateways to Palm City from other Martin County
       areas. We will continue to feature this area with events
       as the progress continues.
         Martin County High School Art Club students under
       the direction of Amanda Jones, Studio Art Teacher, are
       currently working on a beautiful Salute to Service mural
       on the east wall of the Palm City Post Office located at
       the intersection of Mapp Road and State Road 714. This is
       what drivers see as they cross over the Veterans Memorial
       Bridge and enter Palm City.
         Mapp Road is in the CRA, Community Redevelopment       2022 Palm city
       Area, which also oversees Art in Public Places. This
       mural, along with others to come, is the vision of District   chamber of
       5  County Commissioner  Ed Ciampi. He presented  his
       idea to the Palm City Chamber of Commerce, and we             commerce
       contacted the Palm City Postmaster, Allison Rios, and
       Amanda Jones, at Martin County High School, to put
       together a meeting to discuss the process. Everyone was   board of directors
       on board and very happy to bring this concept to life.
