What about West PBC? If there is any area that might be most likely to see some development in the Miami MSA, I think it would be the areas around Belle Glade and Pahokee. I wouldn't be surprised if they stick another Lehigh Acres there.

I agree since Royal Palm Beach's western edge is already halfway there along US98.

Areas like Port Charlotte, North Port, Lehigh Acres, Cape Coral can no longer be built. Areas of that size must now be 'planned communities' with infrastructure and all the amenities. And because they are large, most of them become a CDD with the individual buyers paying the developers bonds [mortgage].

No! No more development, we already too many people as it is. I wish all the Yankees would leave so FL's population could drop down to 5 million. The fewer people, the better.

I am not very familiar with what the development boundries are up in WPB. Are there any? If not I agree WPB is the best candidate for possible increase in Sprawl. But for the most part Miami-Dade and Broward are at capacity in width.

Yeah, as if anyone would actually want to live closer to Belle Glade and Pahokee than Wellington, which IMO, is close enough as it is.

Have you, pray tell, ever even been out that way?

I am surprised the idiot who owns Subway has not started building the new version of Lehigh Acres at Yeehaw Junction.

Well I live west of Clewiston and an hoping that if enough of us get together we can sabotage any new development plans. This is an area of cattle, sugar cane and abandoned citrus farms. Florida is way over developed anyway, and only survives due to the billions printed by the Fed each month.
