PALM CITY, Fla. — Neighbors have been complaining for years about major flooding in parts of Palm City.

Roads and sidewalks are now being ripped up as Martin County works to fix the issue.

"I'm a fourth generation general contractor," said Ron Skelton.

Skelton has been living in Old Palm City for 31 years. He's seen the growth, and now he has a front row view of more upgrades being made right near his home.

"It's going to be an improvement. We have areas of Old Palm City where water and puddles stand for days," Skelton said.
