The City of Delray Beach
Delray Beach is truly a unique city! From its award winning public beaches and vibrant downtown nightlife to its excellent neighborhoods, bustling economy, and abundance of cultural activities, Delray Beach offers an unparalleled quality of life.
Located in the southern end of Palm Beach County, Delray Beach was settled as an agricultural community in 1895. First incorporated in 1911, it became the City of Delray Beach on May 11, 1927. The City has experienced substantial growth from 1,015 people in 1920 to 64,000 people today.
Delray Beach encompasses slightly over 16 square miles of land area, of which 90% has been developed. As the City approaches "build-out," growth management has shifted focus to renewal and redevelopment.
