A sizeable update on the legal battle to save Mizner Trail former golf course from development in the Boca Del Mar community appears in today’s (April 1) Sun-Sentinel. It’s headlined “Boca Del Mar drops golf course development fight.”

The article includes quotes from residents representing views of those who object to the community’s loss of its master-planned green space.  Residents will have a chance to voice their opinions again in public comments at the next Boca Del Mar board meeting on April 8. The Boca Del Mar community is Florida’s oldest and largest PUD, formed in 1971.

The board of the Boca Del Mar Improvement Association (BDMIA) announced at its March 11 meeting that it would not pursue any legal appeals to prevent development on the course. The board was met with overwhelming objections from the residents packing the meeting room.  William “Billy” Vale was the only BDMIA board member who objected to the decision.

Residents were told they were on their own and free to pursue other legal options. After the meeting, a group of residents exchanged information to explore the legal options open to them.
