Palm Beach Mayor Marty Millar is drawing heat for his vote to change the town’s comprehensive plan, a land use shift that would pave the way for a skyscraper on the beach. Millar sent a proposal to change the plan to the Florida Department of Community Affairs for review, essentially providing bureaucratic cover for plans for a 99-unit, 90-some-foot-tall hotel on the site of the Palm Beach Oceanfront Inn. Earlier plans capped the tower’s height at 16 stories.
