A 20-year plan to develop a one-square-mile tract of land for Scripps
Research Institute and more biotech companies in Palm Beach Gardens has been approved by the city council. The project had created much
uproar among environmentalists, who claimed that initiative would
destroy a rare forest ecosystem, sometimes staging provocative
protests. The plan also include offices, retail, 300 hotel rooms and
almost 3,000 residential units. [Palm Beach Post]
