DCA’s ruling that Palm Coast’s Comprehensive Plan Amendment adopting a Northwest Corridor Overlay Area makes no sense.
My partner is the conversation lived in one of the communities surrounding the original ITT core of what is now Palm Coast. Using his own logic, his development would never have been approved in time to be ready for his arrival here. New arrivals need choices.
The other point I made is that 40,000 lots represents only a potential. It’s not reasonable to think they will all be built upon. I’ve played golf in Grand Haven for 10 years. During that time, I’ve birdied every hole at least once and had three eagles. Par is 72, so my potential is a round of 51; not possible though I still keep trying. My very best round on the course is 74; that’s 23 strokes above my potential.[And that was a long time ago.]
In perspective, the increase in entitled (permitted) residential units for the two communities will be only 30% with phased 20 to 30-year build outs. Flagler County grew by about 50% in ten years. Plus, the Old Brick Township DRI ties phase two and three residential growth to successful commercial growth. Until the jobs are there, growth is suspended.
