Citizens seek redress in court to protect property and quality of lifeThe final hearing on the Administrative Challenge filed by ALERTS of PBC, Inc. against Palm Beach County is set to begin Wednesday, March 4, 2015 at 9:00 a.m.  This case challenges the comprehensive land use changes approved by the Board of County Commissioners (BCC) for the Minto West development.  The hearing will be held at the Palm Beach County’s Governmental Center, McEaddy Conference Room, 12th Floor, 301 North Olive Avenue, West Palm Beach, Florida. Support is appreciated. The public is allowed to attend, however seating is limited in this room.

Meanwhile, a Circuit Court action that challenges the rezoning approved on Minto West by BCC is pending.  1000 Friends of Florida has joined Alerts of PBC in that action.  An Amended Complaint was recently filed; however, no trial date has been set.  Alerts of PBC says that if it prevails in its Administrative Challenge the Circuit Court action will likely not be required.
