With a population of 1,200 residents, the Town of Palm Shores announced three new projects, including the Town’s first aquatic center. Mayor Carol McCormack said, “I welcome each project and am excited about the continued growth of our Town.”

At the end of March, groundbreaking will begin on the Palm Shores Aquatic Center, which will include a 10-lane competition pool and a three-lane teaching pool. The center is designed with an “end-to-end” program in mind, which provides swimming lessons and programs for babies to adults. The aquatic center will be the first of its kind in Brevard County.

The mission of the aquatic center is to grow a comprehensive swim program and culture in the Brevard County area. The center will hold swim programs designed for individuals with Autism and other special needs and will provide space to neighboring schools that don’t currently have access to other facilities. The center will also host health and wellness programs beyond swimming.

The Palm Shores Aquatic Center will be built in partnership with the Swim Melbourne Foundation, which has swimming programs for youth and adults.

Beyond the aquatic center, the Town is welcoming two additional projects, including a 45,000-square-foot office space and a new restaurant. The goal of the office space is to incentive small businesses to settle in Palm Shores. Jimmy Hula’s, a fast-casual dining restaurant, is also in construction after the close of a local restaurant.

“Palm Shores is known as the ‘little Town that cares’ and is becoming the ‘little Town that’s growing,’ said Town Clerk Pat Burke. “More and more commercial businesses are finding the Town of Palm Shores the place they want to call home!”
