CITY OF BOYNTON BEACH - SIX EVENTS IN SIX MONTHS
In the summer of 2018, the City of Boynton Beach embarked on a 2-year, $500 million redevelopment project in the downtown area. It was a very controversial project - several of the City’s most valued public land and facilities would be demolished to make room for modern 5-story public buildings, housing units, and parking garages on a 16-acre area in the City’s small prime downtown area.
Several long time, well-known significant landmarks would soon be demolished along with the history and memories that accompanied each one.
Understanding the impact this would have on the community, Eleanor Krusell created “6 Events in 6 Months” – a plan to involve the community in the process of revitalizing the downtown area.
By creating these innovative events, Eleanor and her team created lasting memories and treasured mementos for residents and the results showed through social media.
