Royal Poinciana controversy heats up

A plan to develop condominium units at the site of the now-shuttered Royal Poinciana Playhouse has turned ugly with allegations of a threatening email sent to Town Council President David Rosow by a town resident critical of the plan. The e-mail was sent by Palm Beach resident Lowell Levine, who has been campaigning to remove Sterling Palm Beach, the project developer, which has itself applied to withdraw after being cited by the town for peeling paint, rotten wood and other violations which it subsequently corrected.
