D R Horton has applied for a Major Development Order (“MDO”) for a PUD containing 138 residential units in 46 triplexes and an additional Commercial tract. The subject 36.6-acre tract is located south of 30A, west of The Retreat Drive and bordering the Draper Coastal Dune Lake.
This project will have a negative impact to 30A’s quality of life as it is inconsistent with the character of the local area and other developments in the area.
If this development is approved as requested, the whole concept of 30A being a scenic road will be severely impacted.
