The fate of a single-family home development planned for a golf course in Tamarac is in limbo due to contaminated soil found on the site.

The Tamarac City Commission will vote on whether to ban construction of 152 homes on the Woodmont Country Club site until the developer makes an effort to remove or decontaminate the 60,000-cubic-yard heap of dirt, according to the Sun Sentinel.

Pulte Homes paid $10.2 million for the 44-acre site at 7801 Northwest 80th Avenue last summer. The developer is building on nine of the golf club’s 18 holes.

Woodmont owner Mark Schmidt blamed Hurricane Irma for the setbacks, telling the Sun Sentinel that the removal of downed trees and debris is still underway.

Pulte and other home builders are increasingly buying golf course land for redevelopment. In 2016, Pulte launched sales of 645 homes and townhouses at the Parkview at Hillcrest community golf course in Hollywood. [Sun Sentinel] – Amanda Rabines
