P&Z denies land use change for old golf course site.

By Staff | Jun 7, 2017

After after listening to more than two and a half hours of testimony that included approximately 20 speakers – all opposed – the Cape Coral Planning & Zoning Commission rejected a requested land use change for the old golf course acreage today.

P&Z voted 5-2 to reject the request brought forward by DR Horton, which proposes to build as many as 771 single-family homes on the 175-acre site.

The vote got a standing ovation from the Save Our Recreation contingent, a neighborhood group which packed the chambers in opposition.

The land is zoned for single-family residential, however the designated land use is for parks and recreational use.

City staff had recommended approval.

The request will come before the Cape Coral City Council for its consideration in August.
