Indian Trails Groves gets initial approval from PBC Commission

The massive Indian Trails Grove development project west of The Acreage got preliminary approval from the Palm Beach County Commission Tuesday.

Commissioners voted 6-1 in favor of moving forward with the project, which calls for 3,900 housing units to be built on 4,900 acres west of 180th Avenue North and south of Hamlin Boulevard. Commissioner Paulette Burdick cast the lone dissenting vote.

Some area residents, environmentalists and preservationists opposed the project, saying it will invite sprawl, increase traffic and degrade the environment.

A pair of public hearings will be held later this year before the project could get final approval.
