It’s now up to the state of Florida’s Department of Community Affairs to decide whether the Town Commission’s decision to adopt changes to its codes in May are consistent with the town’s Comprehensive Plan.
Because the town of Longboat Key chose not to respond to a request by the Islandside Property Owners Coalition to amend the changes made within 30 days of their request, IPOC attorney Michael Furen filed an administrative appeal with the DCA.
And on Tuesday, Aug. 24, DCA assistant general counsel Lynette Norr and DCA planner Scott Rogers heard appeal testimony from IPOC, the town and Key Club officials at the Sun Trust bank building on Bay Isles Road.
The seven changes to the code were submitted to the town by the Longboat Key Club and Resort to diminish much of the legal challenges presented by IPOC, which opposes the club’s $400 million renovation-and-expansion project.
For more information on the hearing, pick up a copy of the Aug. 26 edition of The Longboat Observer.
