Honore/Palmer Ranch Parkway Rezoning

Turtle Rock Residents,
The Board of County Commission will be discussing the proposed development at the Northwest corner of Palmer Ranch Parkway and Honore. They will decide whether or not to send the development plan to the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity. This plan was approved by the County Planning Commission on June 18. This is the next step in the process to gain county approval to build a 232 unit apartment complex on that corner. The governing boards of all the surrounding communities oppose this development as proposed. We encourage all association members to attend the meeting and speak in opposition to this development. There does not seem to be a virtual meeting arrangement.
This proposed development is requesting build a complex with the highest number of units per acre in all of Palmer Ranch and it would be about 34% denser then the next highest unit density development. It also provides inadequate buffering/screening from the surrounding communities. If approved this development would create an apartment complex the size of the Sage, on south Honore, but on one-half the acreage.
Please consider attending the session at 1:30 on August 26 to voice your opposition to this proposed development.
If you have any question please contact myself or any board member.
Thank you,
Russ Gill – President
