A big ticket construction project is raising concern within the Palm Beach Gardens community of Marisol, as some residents privately say they’re worried about the potential impact of the development.

According to a number of emails sent to the Palm Beach Post, residents expressed concern over the $40 million update of the Mirasol Country Club and what it’s impact will be on those residents living in lower-priced sections of the community.

For members with golf and tennis privileges, assessments will increase by about $175 a month for 12 and half years. The annual cost of operating club will increase to $1.3 million, or close to $1,100 for each member, depending on membership levels.

Other residents questioned the logistics of the project, including a $1 million plan to renovate and move a poolside restaurant to the far side of the building, as well as the addition of a bistro-style eatery near the pool. [Palm Beach Post] – Kerry Barger
