About the Condo News

Established in 1971

The Condo News print newspaper, in its 53rd. year, circulates within the condominium communities of Palm Beach County, Florida, from Delray Beach in the south to North Palm Beach in the north, and along the beach on Singer Island, Palm Beach, and South Palm Beach, west to Royal Palm Beach. The paper is delivered in bulk to the clubhouses, lobbies and mail rooms of  most of the major condominium and co-operative association communities as well as some home owner association communities in the distribution area every other Thursday. 

The Condo News is a socially oriented print newspaper featuring news supplied by correspondents from the various communities; items of interest to associations and their boards by Ask the Lawyer - a question and answer column about Condominium Law issues; and the Community Association Counselor  - columns on Community Association Law;  Local News page featuring The Condo Connection - local writers with columns about their communities; The Condo Connection section (formerly Food Fun Entertainment); Essays written by Condo News readers; Fit After Fifty, a health and fitness column; Grandparents' Brag Book which features photos of grandchildren and great grandchildren of Condo News readers, Milestone Birthdays, Wedding Anniversary Announcements; Veterans organizations' news and directory; Hotlines on Happenings; Guest Opinions; Letters to the Editors; display and classified advertising (our bread and butter); and much more. 

We are a small, specialized newspaper which attempts to provide comprehensive information for people who live in association communities. 

Condo News Online is an extension of the Condo News, taking its content largely from the print version, with the addition of links to interesting and informative websites we feel are of interest to our readers. The columns by condo correspondents appear only in the print version.

We hope you enjoy this website. Let us hear from you. We welcome your comments.
