$18 million Canyon library supported by returning Boynton West leader

After a one-year hiatus, Myrna Rosoff is back in the president’s position at what is the suburban Boynton Beach area’s most influential group: the Coalition of Boynton West Residential Associations.

About 110 communities are part of the group, whose members are influential in incoming development and what it should look like. They vote on incoming projects, and give their recommendation to the Palm Beach County Commission.

Rosoff replaces Glen Harvie, who lives in Bellaggio, south of Lantana Road at US 441. She served as president for three years up until last year because of term limits.

“He pressed the default button and I came back as the factory standard,” Rosoff said Wednesday at COBWRA’s monthly meeting.

Despite the change in leadership, the group’s focus remains the same.

“We still need the park, the community center, the library in order to be a good solid neighborhood,” said Rosoff, who lives in Aberdeen, north of Gateway Boulevard and just east of Florida’s Turnpike. “While we still need them we are far closer to our dream.”

The county is looking at building wants to build an $18 million, 30,000-square-foot library around Canyon Town Center. A nearby park, for which a firm has begun already started working on the design and permitting, is expected to be built with money from the sales tax increase.

Other goals Rosoff laid out for the year include better communication between the group’s delegates and to residents who live in communities. Also, Rosoff wants to have a review of the group’s bylaws and to take a look at whether the five-member executive board’s one-year term should be extended. About four months of the year is spent recruiting and vetting potential officers.

COBWRA still has a strong interest in preserving the Agricultural Reserve, a farming zone located west of Boynton Beach and Delray Beach that has become the subject of passionate debates concerning development.

“It’s become the 800-pound gorilla that’s always on our shoulders,” she said.
