Palm Beach Gardens, FA

Western Northlake Communities Coalition ( is a grassroots project launched by concerned residents living in communities along the Western Northlake Boulevard corridor who oppose unnecessary zoning changes. BayHill Estates, Osprey Isles, Carlton Oaks, The Preserve at BayHill, Rustic Lakes, and other community groups oppose two specific projects - Vintage Oaks and Vintage Crossing - as we see no justification for rezoning to allow overly dense real estate projects adjacent to rural residential communities. We ask our City of Palm Beach Gardens planners and officials to consider the needs and demands of the communities at large and not approve projects merely for the benefit of commercial developers and increased tax dollars. We would like to be heard. ‍

We are particularly concerned about the impact of high or medium-density development projects on traffic safety when traffic accumulation and congestion along Western Northlake Boulevard present a tremendous daily risk to residents. We feel strongly that communities like ours are not built, but they can be broken when we fail to consider each community individually and cumulatively. Only through transparent and open dialogue with consideration of actual and planned projects generating impact on communities, the environment, school capacity, and our roads can we prepare for our future.

Richland County, SC

The February notice sent to all property owners in unincorporated Richland County (375,000 acres) indicated the rezoning would become effective on May 2. However, the process has been deferred for 30 days due to the County’s Planning Commission’s recent reveal of potential impacts unknown to most homeowners.

If approved, the rezoning will change every parcel to a new zoning designation and comes with new limits to homeowners’ permitted uses. Small rural farms and businesses will be impacted, and family property may not be able to be divided.
