Delray Beach Florida
Delray Beach is truly a unique city! From its award winning public beaches and vibrant downtown nightlife to its excellent neighborhoods, bustling economy, and abundance of cultural activities, Delray Beach offers an unparalleled quality of life. .
Located in the southern end of Palm Beach County, Delray Beach was settled as an agricultural community in 1895. First incorporated in 1911, it became the City of Delray Beach on May 11, 1927. The City has experienced substantial growth from 1,015 people in 1920 to 64,000 people today.
Delray Beach encompasses slightly over 16 square miles of land area, of which 90% has been developed. As the City approaches "build-out," growth management has shifted focus to renewal and redevelopment. Economic development reaches out to all areas of the City. In recent years, corporations such as Office Depot, Oriole Homes, Levengers, and North American Shared Services Center for Joseph Seagrams and Sons, Inc. have opened corporate headquarters in Delray Beach.
Our dynamic, evolving community is constantly energized by the rich diversity of its people and their determined efforts to shape a promising future for themselves, their children, their neighbors and their city. The City's educational system is constantly growing and improving each year, providing our children with unequaled opportunities. We have earned a well-deserved reputation as a city whose citizens take an active role in our neighborhood and community associations and in the affairs of City government. The All-America City award program annually recognizes ten communities within the United States for constructive citizen participation and collaboration of the public, private, and nonprofit sectors in identifying and resolving critical issues. The City was recognized as an All-America City in 1993, was a finalist in the 1998 competition, and has been recognized again as an All-America City in 2001. This makes Delray Beach the only Florida city to ever win the designation twice. In 1993 the citizens were honored for their community neighborhood efforts, school improvement initiatives and the culture and arts complex. The 2001 award honors the citizens of Delray Beach for their Community Neighbors Helping program, the Youth Enrichment Vocation program and the Village Academy.
In 2012 Delray Beach Florida was voted The Friendliest Town in the USA.
