Lake Worth considers name change
LAKE WORTH, Fla. — After nearly 100 years of existence, the city of Lake Worth could change its name to Lake Worth Beach if commissioners move forward with the proposal.
“Unlike some other cities with beach in their name, Lake Worth actually has a beach. So, there has been this discussion that’s ongoing about should we add the word beach so it is Lake Worth Beach and identifies us as coastal beachfront community?” said city manager Michael Bornstein.
The City Commission is exploring this option to boost tourism and to also to distance itself from the surrounding crime ridden areas.
