Latest news: Tonight’s Planning and Zoning Board meeting.

The developer (Meritage Homes, applicant; project name, “Lake Cove”) has asked for a postponement to work with neighbors on issues such as entrance and exiting the site. This item is off tonight’s agenda:

PZB Project# 17-01000001 and 17-01400006 requests for a rezoning from Single
Family Residential (SFR) to a Residential Planned Development District (RPDD) and a
Major Site Plan to allow for the construction of a 53 unit single family subdivision.

Stay tuned for more about this project in the near future. This will be a new community here in our City east of I-95 (see image below). After all that’s been going on in Palm Beach County with western sprawl it’s good to see a new housing community proposed within a coastal city. What will be interesting to see is who lines up in opposition and their reasoning why. Stay tuned for more about that.

“The vicinity in which the project site is located is a single family residential community. The applicant is undertaking the redevelopment of the site that will result in a viable single-family development. The type of compact urban development proposed by the applicant is consistent with the Single Family Future Land Use Element of the Comprehensive Plan. The redeveloped site is expected to serve as a catalyst for investment in Lake Worth.
