Debate delays college campus development

January 20, 2009 03:17PM

Wellington officials continue to dispute the merits of a proposal to
convert the town’s 67-acre K-Park into a campus for Palm Beach
Community College. Mayor Darell Bowen supports the project, but city
council members are skeptical, and the conflict has stalled the pace of
the proposal, the mayor said. Some council members want to know how the college plans to pay for the construction and how the development will economically benefit Wellington, including the number of jobs it will create.
