Village partners with local firm to put businesses ‘on the map’

Palmetto Bay is in the early stages of developing the premier edition of a colorful, fold-out village map to be distributed within the municipality and at other strategic points throughout South-Dade in early 2010.

Business advertisers currently are being invited to participate as only about 35 preferential display-ad slots are available per year.

This program is the cornerstone of the village’s promotion of businesses and attractions in Palmetto Bay, thereby literally putting Palmetto Bay “on the map” for use by local residents and visitors to South Florida.

By partnering with a firm called Miami Maps, more than 75,000 maps will be produced and updated annually, partly in a “green” attempt to encourage residents to buy locally (whereby reducing their carbon footprint), but also to set the stage for the wave of anticipated development in Palmetto Bay’s emerging downtown district and northward along the US1 commercial corridor Miami Maps has produced this valuable marketing tool for several other South Florida communities during the past 20 years. Miami Maps currently produces maps for Coral Gables, Coconut Grove, Key Biscayne and Brickell. Merchants located in Palmetto Bay will receive a free standard listing inside the map. Visit < > for an example of these informative and useful maps.

Maps are distributed throughout the year to local businesses and residents, stores, restaurants, Village Hall, hotel concierge desks, the Deering Estate at Cutler, and many more locations. The maps also will be available at village events and will be mailed to all residences located within the village.

Merchants and business owners wishing to participate should contact Alex Schreer at 305- 962-2727 or Marshall Steingold at 305-710- 2720, via email at < > or < >, or visit Miami Maps on the Web. Display advertising is available. Join other businesses and become a part of an excellent way to promote your business — and our wonderful community.
