Members of the town council and residents of Loxahatchee Groves in central Palm Beach County are resisting a plan to build 94 houses there. The planned development would put the houses at a 47-acre site on the southeast corner of the intersection of C Road and Collecting Canal Road. Joe Lelonek of Atlantic Land Development represented the owners of four parcels comprising the 47-acre site during a preliminary public presentation of the planned development, called Loxahatchee Farms West, on Jan. 16.

For the development to advance, the town would have to rezone the site and amend its land use plan to allow denser residential construction, Lelonek said. Town residents at the public presentation complained that Loxahatchee Farms West would change the town’s rural character and could generate excessive traffic and more crime. Mayor Dave Browning expressed opposition to denser residential development in the town. He said Loxahatchee Groves, which limits residential development to one home per acre, would have to allow two homes per acre for the 94-house development to unfold on the proposed 47-acre development site.
