The last gasp to save Suni Sands in Jupiter: a 4-minute video attacking the developer

Bill DiPaolo at the Post has this latest news about Suni Sands. Here is an excerpt:
     Hobe Sound resident [Charles] Modica, who paid about $17 million in 2013 for the prime 10-acre property fronting the Jupiter Inlet, is moving forward with his plans for a non-gated community with a 200-room hotel, a dozen cottages, retail space and underground parking for about 400 vehicles. Current zoning limits building height to three stories.
     Eviction notices have been sent by certified mail to the roughly 100 residents of the mobile-home park. Residents are eligible for up to $6,000 from Florida to help with moving expenses.
     Modica said he sympathized with residents, but town regulations allow development of the property. He said he has purposely stalled development, which is not expected to start until next year, to allow residents to find a new place to live. [emphasis added]
