The planned public hearing on the redevelopment of the Lodge at Hammock Beach on the Flagler County Commission’s agenda Monday, January 12 may be postponed until early February.
Palm Coast, FL – January 9, 2015 – The planned public hearing on the redevelopment of the Lodge at Hammock Beach on the Flagler County Commission’s agenda Monday, January 12 may be postponed. A new hearing date will likely be sometime in early February.
It looks like both blue-shirted and white-shirted Flagler residents will be able to stay home Monday and watch the National College Football Championship instead of attending the BOCC meeting Monday evening.
County staff will recommend the hearing be postponed for two reasons. The staff received a new site plan late Friday from the representatives of Salamander, the developer of the project.
“There is not enough time for the staff to properly review the plan and make a recommendation to the Commission, Deputy County Administrator Sally Sherman who is also the director of Growth Management said. “ A copy of the application and new site plan has been posted on the County’s website.”
Secondly, due to medical reasons, there is a concern that a County Commissioner would likely be unable to attend Monday’s meeting. In fairness to all concerned the County wants to have the testimony heard and evidence considered by a full board of the County Commissioners, if possible.
“We appreciate the understanding of everyone who is engaged in this process”, County Administrator Craig Coffey said.
Of course the delay will only fuel the ongoing debate between the Blues (who oppose the Salamander project) and the Whites (who favor the project). Look for more colorful postings on their respective Facebook pages. GoToby.com will continue timely coverage and commentary.
