RPB Zoners OK Sign Changes, Paint, Birth Center Request


The Royal Palm Beach Planning and Zoning Commission approved several requests for sign and paint changes, as well as a special exception for a birthing center, on Tuesday, March 22.

SignJive requested architectural approval for modifications to the existing signage for the Point at Southern Blvd., located at 11020 Town Circle, including a color change to match the unit and building colors, as well as a new coating.

Planning and zoning director Bradford O’Brien said the applicant was requesting signage changes for an existing residential development, formerly known as Town Center. He said the staff recommends approval.

Commission Alternate Lauren McClellan moved a motion to approve the request, which passed 4-0 with Chair Adam Miller, Vice Chair Philip Marquis and June Perrin in attendance.

The commissioners also approved a request from plaintiff Frederick Nichols of Nichols Contracting to paint the exterior walls and accent lines of an existing building at 260 Business Parkway.

O’Brien said the plaintiff is requesting two shades of green for accent colors to match the colors of its logo on the facade. The paint job has already been done.

Nichols apologized for painting the building without prior permission. “We just moved to the area,” he said.

Perrin made a motion to approve the request, which carried 4-0.

Commissioners then approved a bid for the future location of World of Beer in the Southern Palm Crossing shopping centre. Joseph Belluccia of JVB Architect requested alterations and painting to the exterior of the building, located at 11121 Southern Blvd.

O’Brien said the applicant is seeking architectural approval to allow alterations to the existing building, including the installation of two wall signs and the replacement of a facade.

Marquis made a motion to approve the request, which carried 4-0.

Finally, the commissioners approved a request by Nelson Posada to approve a special exception use for a birth center in a commercial office zoning district located at 1490 Royal Palm Beach Blvd.

O’Brien said the plaintiff is asking for a special exception to allow a birth center, which is now allowed in commercial office zoning districts as a special exception.

The birthing center will occupy the entire 3,200 square foot building.

The Royal Palm Beach Village Council approved a zoning enactment amendment in August 2021 to allow birth centers as a special exception in commercial office zoning districts.

The change was made at the request of Posada.

O’Brien said the application is consistent with the overall plan and development standards. He added that staff recommended approval.

Marquis made a motion to approve the request, which carried 4-0.
