Letter to the Editor: Dear Village Board


The 55 acre piece of property in question is already a unique symbol of this town and its old Florida heritage that the native people the Seminoles used to thrive in.

I welcome new neighbors who will also love and care for their own property and this town.

I was shocked and angry when I first heard the rumors of rental apartments and zero lot line homes going in on the beautiful wooded 55 acres next to me!

I felt violated that our own Village Council would even think of bulldozing our towns old Florida woods for a cheap rental development. Then by the grace of God I realized that any decision or reaction made by me or the Village that is based on greed, fear, anger or anxiety/worry will most likely be wrong and lead to disaster.

I am part of an organized large group of approximately 60 homeowners that will work together with the Village to both preserve and develop this piece of property.

No apartments, no rentals, no duplexes, no townhouses will go in.

I live on a .51 acre lot. The smallest lot in this community is .28 acres and most lots are over 1 acre. This is the current community standard which is what is already between Southwest Famel Boulevard/Avenue and Southwest Palm Oak Drive and nothing less will be tolerated in our community.

I envision a Jupiter Farms type community where over 1 acre deed restricted lots will be sought after.

A park and wildlife preserve with wooded buffer zones will be included in the development plan.

Indiantown has a unique opportunity to financially improve the town and enhance our cultural diversity by working together to create something even more beautiful by developing this awesome track of ancient oaks and old Florida feel.

Let’s not fight or fail but rather work together as brothers and sisters of Indiantown.

Thank you,
John “JP” Pasquale & Family
