An advisory board reportedly halted plans for Minto West, Minto Communities’ megadevelopment in West Palm Beach.

The Planning Commission voted unanimously to reject a recommendation from county officials to press on with a review of the 6,500-home project, according to the Palm Beach Post. The development is slated to cover 3,800 acres on the old Callery-Judge Grove site in the largely single-family Acreage neighborhood.

The project, if approved after public hearings by the commission and the county over the summer, would also include a 3,000-student college campus, a baseball stadium and 1.4 million square feet of nonresidential space on Seminole Pratt Whitney Road. That includes 15 miles of bridle trails and “natural areas” covering 40 percent of the property, according to Minto’s website.

The development could take up to 25 years to build out.

The Coconut Creek-based developer purchased the citrus grove for $51 million, a mere $13,700 per acre, as previously reported[PalmBeachPost] — Angela Hunt
