Message From the City Manager
Whether you're a longtime resident, a newcomer or a visitor, the City of Palm Coast is glad you're here! Our goal is to provide you and your family a great quality of life in a true Florida paradise. We pride ourselves on a well-run local government with high standards for public safety, planning and development, environmental stewardship, water quality, and a wide array of services our citizens enjoy day-in and day-out.
Palm Coast has a comprehensive economic development effort titled "Prosperity 2021: Our Plan for Growing the Local Economy." The Business Assistance Center, a partnership between the City and the University of Central Florida Small Business Development Center, has the mission to help grow local businesses "one job at a time." Other major initiatives of Prosperity 2021 include maintaining the quality of Palm Coast's neighborhoods, helping existing businesses, and attracting new investment by offering events and bringing in sports tournaments.
Today, there are many positive trends – spending is up, unemployment is dropping, growth is strong, and business is improving. We have landscaped our medians, upgraded our parks, and we now have more than 125 miles of connecting trails and pathways for walking/bicycling. Recreational programs and events are offered year-round.
We are so happy you've "Found Your Florida" here in Palm Coast! We look forward to serving you as we make Palm Coast an even better place to live, work and play.
