Help Imagine Palm Coast's Future!

The City of Palm Coast is excited to announce the launch of "Imagine 2050," a comprehensive plan update that invites you to have a direct hand in planning the future.

In simple terms, a comprehensive plan is like a roadmap for the future of our city. It's a big-picture plan that helps guide how Palm Coast grows and develops over the years. Imagine 2050 will serve as our community's blueprint, outlining what we want our city to look like in the year 2050 and how we'll get there.
