On Nov. 17th the P.B. Zoning Staff certified Richard Siemen's golf course conversion proposal 2010-1728 for Mizner Trail. This does not mean it has been approved, it has not. What this means is that after several revisions it meets the MINIMUM legal code requirements and can now be sent to the next step which is a hearing and vote on January 7, 2011 by the P.B. Zoning Commission.
In the meantime, we await the P.B. Zoning Staff's recommendation to approve or disapprove the proposal. In 2006 the zoning staff was adamantly against any building on any portion of the golf course. Regardless of the outcome of that vote, it will then be sent to the Palm Beach County Commissioners for a hearing and vote on January 27, 2011. ONLY if the County Commissioners vote to approve the zoning change will development be allowed.
HERE IS WHAT YOU NEED TO DO:
Email the P.B. Zoning Commissioners by sending your brief objection to the Zoning Commissioners secretaries: RParker@pbcgov.org and SSmalls@pbcgov.org.
In your subject line print: Forward To All Zoning Commissioners Re: Mizner Trail 2010-1728 Their staff are required to forward your comments to all Zoning Commissioners. This is extremely important, previously you may have sent an email to the County Commissioners, this is a completely different board.

Defending our community from wealthy developers with deep pockets who are poised to make millions does not come cheap.

HISTORY IS ON OUR SIDE
In 2006 the Zoning Staff recommended for denial of the zoning change, the Palm Beach County Commissioners voted against the zoning change, and the Palm Beach Circuit County Court ruled against the zoning change. Nothing has changed since 2006, we should expect the result to be the same. No Zoning Change.
The Second Coalition Against Mizner Development (a group of your neighbors) wants to thank every one of you for your overwhelming and continued support to defeat this zoning change, but now is not the time to sit back, now is the time to step up. The coalition's unwavering position is "no building on any fairway", we represent all of you and will not compromise or sellout any community under any condition. You have until January 27, 2011 to make sure your voice is heard. Let them hear you loud and clear.
