Re: G. L. Homes' Proposal to Preserve the Indian Trails Grove Property by Transferring Residential Units to the Agricultural Reserve Area
Dear Mayor Burdick, Vice Mayor McKinlay and Commissioners:
On May 23, 2017, GL Homes presented their proposal to transfer unit rights from their Indian Trails Grove property to their land within the Agricultural Reserve area of Palm Beach County; utilizing a portion of the Indian Trails Grove property as required preservation for their proposed developments. This proposal: (1) does not increase the number of units already authorized by the County’s Comprehensive Plan; (2) actually results in significantly MORE land being set aside for preservation; (3) directs growth to an area of the County where infrastructure and planned developments already exist; and, (4) provides for a large contiguous area for farming operations to continue.
On this day, the board of the ALA voted unanimously in favor of supporting GL’s proposal. We believe this proposal is in the best interest of the County for the reasons enumerated above and should be given serious consideration by the Board of County Commissioners.
While we have been working with the representatives of GL Homes for years on their development plans for this area the ALA board firmly believes their proposal identifies and alleviates many of the concerns that the ALA had. We applaud their plan.
