Palm Beach County officials could end up duking it out with a board that governs the Acreage over the traffic impact of the massive proposed Minto West development.

Indian Trail Improvement District officials plan to ask the county to close off Minto West’s eastern boundary and threatened to block the Acreage roads if they don’t get their wish. The district wants all traffic arriving to and leaving the 6,500-home development to come from one road, Seminole Pratt-Whitney.

“We want to protect our way of life,” Carol Jacobs, president of the district’s board of supervisors, told the Palm Beach Post.

County Engineer George Webb claims the authority to maintain the public easement lies with the county, not the district. Webb noted Acreage residents would also be blocked if the district follows through with its threat.
