Boca Raton Approves Future Development on Environmentally Sensitive Land

The city of Boca Raton has changed the Land Use (similar to rezoning) on 79 acres of land that the city's own comprehensive growth management plan has designated as Environmentally Sensitive Land. Why do city officials talk about being green or responsible environmental stewards and then bend over backwards to bailout a poor real estate investment? This property is located between Spanish River Blvd. & Yamato Rd. & East of I-95 and West of NW 5th Ave. The current city leaders approved over 1 million sq.ft. of development on this property against the wishes of the area residents.
