GL Homes can double homes in agricultural reserve

Palm Beach County commissioners approved today developer GL Homes’ proposal to build nearly 1,000 homes on 996 acres between Lyons Road and State Road 7. The company’s original plans called for only 554 homes on that land. Additional homes are now allowed partly because construction in the area has dropped so much. But several commissioners still expressed concerns that there will be significant traffic in the area once the housing market comes back.
