The Royal Palm Beach village council has opted to delay a Commons Park project that would add a new entrance on the northeast side.

Many residents of the nearby community the Willows protested the project at the $23 million site over traffic and privacy concerns, as it would be located not far from about 170 houses. The Council plans to table it until receiving more feedback from residents.

“This message is loud and clear,” Council member Fred Pinto said at a meeting last week. “You don’t want this entrance. As far as I’m concerned, it doesn’t have to happen.”

The village paid $156,500 for a foreclosed house at 109 Heron Parkway in December, in an effort to tear it down and construct an access point to the park for pedestrians and bicyclists. Royal Palm Beach planned to apply for grants this year to fund the project. [Palm Beach Post]Mark Maurer
