UPDATE: P&Z Board meeting: “[R]equest for a Major Site Plan to allow for the construction of a 189 unit mixed use apartment complex”.

This agenda item WILL NOT BE ON TOMORROW’S Planning & Zoning Board agenda. This item was moved to the next P&Z meeting on February 7th:

Here is new agenda item E2 from the City:

“Consideration of a request for a Major Site Plan and participation in the Sustainable Bonus Incentive Program to construct a 189 unit Mixed-Use apartment complex. Staff is requesting a continuance to a date certain of February 7, 2018.”

However, interestingly, on the topic of new construction. . .

Recent news from The Palm Beach Post headlined “Hypoluxo’s last large piece of undeveloped land now under construction” — for some strange reason — hasn’t drawn any opposition at all from anyone in the environmental community. Why is that?

Anyhow. So where exactly is the Town of Hypoluxo?
Hypoluxo is immediately south of Lantana.
By the way, when was the last time you saw any news in the Post about the City of Atlantis? It’s a delightful walled community west of John Prince Park in suburban Lake Worth (unincorporated Palm Beach County).

Note that the City of Lake Worth’s P&Z Board is usually scheduled to meet on the first Wednesday of the month. But due to conflicts with the holiday schedule the January 3rd meeting was moved to this coming Wednesday, Jan. 17th.
