In 2009, the CRA was successful in attracting the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County to relocate their headquarters to downtown Lake Worth Beach. As a result of this relocation, the Cultural Council was instrumental in restoring the historic Robert M. Montgomery building located at 601 Lake Avenue. The Council, along with the City and CRA, supports the preservation and promotion of local heritage and provides another cultural anchor here in Lake Worth Beach (along with the Playhouse, the historical museum, the Lake Worth Art League, as well as local galleries and shops). The presence of the Council in downtown Lake Worth Beach has significant impact to the local economy. The Council is an active community partner with the City and CRA, cultural organizations and businesses. By working together and implementing a vision, we all realize the regrowth and renaissance of Lake Worth Beach. The Cultural Councils commitment to the arts and community, and their awareness that culture and art are two of the main ingredients that make a community viable and sustainable, make them a perfect fit, here in Lake Worth Beach.
