The Planning and Zoning Board recommended the 211-unit townhouse project to be built on 30 acres on the southwest edge of Ocean Breeze Golf Course at Boca Teeca to the City Council after a hearing this past week. A public hearing will be held on August 14, and next the Department of Community Affairs must review the proposal. It then goes back to City Counsel in November or December for a final vote, requiring 4 yes votes of the 5 members voting. The proposal includes renovating the Inn at Ocean Breeze by adding 46 hotel rooms to the existing 46, and refurbishing the Boca Teeca clubhouse by adding a new social center. Included would be creating a new 9-hole executive golf course and a redesigned 18-hole golf course on the existing fairways. The townhouses would have golf course views. President of the President’s Council said that “the overwhelming majority of Boca Teeca unit owners fully endorse this plan and voluntarily agree to lift the deed restriction on 30 acres of the south course to allow for a limited 211-unit town home project.” Concerns included traffic along NW 2nd Avenue and the loss to some residents of golf course views.
