Lantana Town Council

Lantana’s Town Council has approved a final zoning — along with comprehensive plan changes — at the Cenacle property. The council disagrees, however, about just how the 1400 South Dixie Highway site should be developed.

The council changed the zoning from commercial low density to waterfront mixed use, with Mayor David Stewart voting against it and Vice Mayor Lynn Moorhouse absent, according to the Palm Beach Post.

“I hope you saw a little bit of just how this council’s working, so when you go back to finesse the next proposal, please keep in mind our codes and how we deal with them in Lantana,” council member Philip Aridas said to developer Trinsic Acquisition.

Trinsic is under contract to buy the 10-acre Cenacle property and because of council disagreement the developer withdrew the plan. Trinsic will soon return with a new proposal for the site, which would be named Aura Seaside.

The most recent plan called for two-story commercial buildings on Dixie Highway and multi-story residential buildings, with 319 rental units. [Palm Beach Post]Christopher Cameron
