DEVELOPER OF PROPOSED 30-STORY CONDO APPEALS TO BOCA RESIDENTS
Sun Sentinel, 12/23/14

Next time you are driving, walking or jogging through “downtown” Boca, take a look.  New construction is everywhere—from Camino Real to Palmetto Park Road.  Not only are these new projects BIG, but most of them exceed Boca’s historic 100-foot height ordinance.  As a result, by exception, the village of Boca Raton is being transformed right before our eyes.  And the results are far from exceptional. 

IT IS TIME FOR THE RESIDENTS OF BOCA TO TELL OUR CITY COUNCIL, OUR CITY “PLANNERS” AND OUR CITY MANAGER THAT ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.  IT’S TIME FOR A PAUSE IN BOCA’S BUILDING BINGE.

We are not anti-development. We are in favor of development that comports with Boca’s downtown master plan and history. We do not want the condo canyons of West Palm Beach or Ft. Lauderdale here. 

We are BocaBeautiful.org, a volunteer organization, endorsed by Bocawatch and Build a Better Boca, whose purpose is to inform and educate regarding issues of importance to the citizens of Boca Raton. If you share our concerns about out of control high rise development in downtown Boca-- and all that it will bring-- join us. 

THERE ARE MORE THAN ENOUGH 10+ STORY BUILDINGS ALREADY UNDER CONSTRUCTION IN DOWNTOWN BOCA.  WE DO NOT NEED ANY MORE. 

HELP US MAKE THAT POINT.
