Boynton Beach Arts District Monthly Art Walks Back On!

Boynton Beach Arts District's acclaimed monthly art walks will live to see many another day!
We hit up BBAD's outspoken leader Rolando Barrero yesterday and found him to be in great spirits about the outcome of his meeting with the City of Boynton Beach on Friday.
Barrero met with Boynton Beach's city manager as well as the chiefs of the police and fire departments last week and says he couldn't be more pleased with the resolution Boynton Beach's city leaders proposed to him about continuing the successful run of BBAD's art walks.


"Lori LaVerriere (Boynton Beach's city manager) couldn't have been more amicable," he revealed. "The moment I arrived, she held her hand out and said, 'I think we have a solution that you are really goong to like.'" The ban on the art walk will be lifted, and BBAD will simply have to pay $250 for a yearly permit to conduct their monthly art walks. "My mouth was an ear-to-ear grin when they told me the news of the proposal."
