The Palm Beach County Planning Commission rejected plans to build a senior housing facility in the Agricultural Reserve, a rural area with strict limits on development.

St. Louis-based Allegro Senior Living proposed construction of a 235-bed facility on a 13-acre site west of Boca Raton, which already is zoned for a school and a day care center.

But the county planning commission recommended denial of the proposed Allegro Senior Living development on Clint Moore Road near Florida’s Turnpike.

Neighbors objected, calling the proposed Allegro development too big to be compatible with its surroundings in the Agricultural Reserve, a 22,000-acre conservation area.

Allegro wants to build on Clint Moore Road because it believes more than 16,000 people who are 75 or older live within three miles of the site of the proposed development.

There are two existing Allegro Senior Living facilities in Palm Beach County, in Boynton Beach and Jupiter. [Sun-Sentinel] — Mike Seemuth
