Here We Go Again Indiantown.
The next meeting of the PZA (Planning and Zoning) Board will put the freshmen members in a position that has very strong similarity to the Tractor Supply ordeal. As a matter of fact, a former PZA Board Member is the one that has made the announcement this time. Instead of human remains in the form of Indian Mounds, she has provided a confirmed sighting of a, wait for it, here you go, Gopher Tortoise on the Garcia Groups massive proposed Development of Regional Impact.
The same Garcia Group that has to ask the PZA for approval to start tearing up the land and putting down pads at the next meeting this Thursday. Then it is off to the Council for their input on the matter a short week later, like a screaming rocket with no way to slow before it burns up in the atmosphere.
Will anyone in power speak up this time? Or will the PZA and Council just breeze past it and give it no attention? If they do raise the issue, will anyone else support them in their effort to slow this down a bit until we know the facts. Things like this have derailed more than one developers dream of big bucks.
We are in the process here @TAM of researching the legal and ethical requirements of all the players in this situation and will update you as we find out more. Until then – say hi to Marjorie’s Gopher Tortoise.
