The developers of the controversial Minto West at the Acreage are hoping to persuade the Wellington Village Council to take a formal position on their plans with a presentation this Tuesday.

Wellington is the last of the western communities bordering the Acreage to weigh in on the project, according to the Palm Beach Post.

Minto Communities wants to build 4,549 homes and more than 2.1 million square feet of office and retail space on the 3,800 acre-property off Seminole Pratt Whitney Road. Minto originally proposed building as many as 6,500 homes.

However, the site is approved for just 2,996 homes and 235,000 square feet of commercial space. [PBP] Christopher Cameron
