Drywall could cost WCI in Parkland

City commissioners in Parkland are set to consider allowing
developer WCI Communities to build again in Parkland’s Heron Bay, after
WCI underwent a series of problems due to Chinese drywall. In January,
the city’s Planning and Zoning board rejected WCI’s bid to build, saying
it wanted to be clear that WCI, which is based in Bonita Springs, was
not welcome in Parkland. Richard Coker, attorney for WCI, said the city
must consider only the proposal to build, not the drywall issue. Some
Heron Bay residents are eager for the city to approve WCI’s bid. [Sun
