Quite a dust-up over 18-acre plot of land at northeast corner of Silver Beach Road and Congress Avenue. Developer wants to sell to Army Corps of Engineers for reserve training facility. Palm Beach County Bioscience Land Protection Board, in a unanimous vote, will send a letter to the Army recommending they find a different site.
Dan Liftman, aide to Rep. Alcee Hastings, recommended that the Army look at Belle Glade or Pahokee. Seems like there would be cheaper land, and no community resistance at all in Western Palm Beach County.
