  • West Palm Beach-Boca Raton, FL (1888PressRelease) May 19, 2011 - Gregg Weiss, Chairman of the Greater Delray Beach Chamber of Commerce, today announced that Florida Lieutenant Governor Jennifer Carroll and Florida House of Representatives Joe Abruzzo and Mack Bernard will be visiting Delray Beach on Friday, May 20, to view the bustling business success along Atlantic Avenue and participate in a special ribbon-cutting ceremony for the Village at Delray, a new community of affordable, luxurious apartments located at 695 Auborn Avenue in downtown Delray Beach.

    Developed by the Auborn Group, the new Village at Delray will also house the Milagro Center, a structured and positive after school program providing art education, academic support and mentoring for children from K-5th grade, and is conveniently located next to Youthland Academy of Delray, an on-site child care center, and across the street from Village Academy Charter School, the Boys and Girls Club of Palm Beach County and Catherine Strong Water Park.

    "Delray Beach has distinguished itself as both a great place to live and do business," said Weiss. "Up and down Atlantic Avenue and throughout the entire community, Delray Beach is providing residents and visitors with an incredible array of positive opportunities - for employment, for raising families and for fun - proving once again why this charming city is widely considered to be the jewel of South Palm Beach County."

    "Even during the sluggish economic environment of the last few years, Atlantic Avenue has distinguished itself as a popular tourist destination. It is home to more than 80 restaurants with an abundance of family friendly activities and exciting hotspots, providing more than 1,500 jobs in the hotel, food and beverage industry," agreed Michael Weiner, local attorney and leader of the Chairman's Club, the Chamber's premium membership level comprised of CEOs, community trustees and corporate executives.

    The Greater Delray Beach Chamber of Commerce is the largest business organization in Delray Beach, representing more than 900 businesses, professionals and organizations.
