Delayed by almost a year, construction of a new preschool in Palm Beach County is much closer to getting underway.

Developer Carlos Gonzalez has taken steps to resolve lingering issues associated with the future site of the 6,300-square-foot Kid’s College in Greenacres, the Palm Beach Post reported. Gonzalez has acquired the one-acre site on the southwest corner of South Jog and Dillman roads for $195,000 and is working on purchasing a small patch of land on the site owned by the Lake Worth Drainage District for $20,000. Along with buying the land from the district, Gonzalez is offering to take over maintenance of a pipe licensing agreement from it so the development can move forward.

About a year ago, Gonzalez received a special zoning exception for the project. He now must obtain site plan approval from the Greenacres planning commission and City Council. If successful, Gonzalez would start construction in the next 90 days and finish the school by year’s end. [Palm Beach Post]Eric Kalis
