PB Co. shoudl follow the guidance of Broward Co. which has required stiffer requirements for golf course conversions in order to preserve open space & recreation land uses, as well as, requiring environmental testing at the outset of any development proposal involving a golf course. Historically golf courses have been heavy users of now banned chemcials which could be hazardous to the public health if contained in residential land.

OF course a golf course is feasible IF the owenr did not over-pay and over-leverage their purchase. Did the owner ever provide an independent feasibilty study by the NGF in order to prove that the current land use is not possible?...of course not! The owner/developer expects the County to take their word that a golf course is not feasible.

At least PB is supporting the residents in West Boca, unlike the city of Boca Raton who has approved a development of 211 townhouses on the Boca Teeca golf course. It appears that there is not enough vacant houses in Boca so the city wants to be #1 in that category too.

Save Boca Raton Green Space has been fighting the development in Boca on the Boca Teeca golf course, as the approved density for their master plan has been violated without so much as a whisper from the city staff. 1,774 units were approved, 1,682 have been built and after adding another 211 townhouses the total density has been exceeded. Boca has rubber-stamped approval of their golf course conversion.
Thank you PB Co. for supporting your established growth management and protecting residential property rights.

Open & Rec. space has always been the reason for including golf courses in master planned developments so that higher density can be achieved on the developed land within the plan. Allowing a reduction of the open space is incompatible with the original requirements which allowed the more dense land to be used for housing or other land uses. Thannk you PB Co. for supporting the original planned density in this area and protecting residential property rights.

Thank you PB Co. commissioners and PB Co. planning staff for standing up against this unecessary development.

If it's going to be green space, I hope it will be cleaned up. Get rid of the sand bunkers.
