One of many Bismarckia nobilis.  A few have been hit by weevils.

Archontophoenix cunninghamiana trimmed a bit to aggressively in most cases

Traveler's Palm (Ravenala madagascariensis) - while in a mild microclimate, the wind off the lake shreds the leaves.  They do set seed, though.

A Copernicia... perhaps Copernicia baileyana

Beccariophoenix alfredii - The second one is trimmed a bit too aggressively

Mules - Butiagrus nabonnandii - there are a lot of these put in place where CIDP used to dominate the landscape

Livistona - probably the most reliable replacement for Lethal Bronzing cold hardy palms
