Community Members Voice Opinions On Firmenich Property Proposal
Despite protests from residents, a planning and zoning board decision means the residential and commercial complex planned for the corner of McMullen Booth Road and SR 590 will go to the city commission for final approval.
The Safety Harbor Planning & Zoning Board approved a proposal Wednesday night that would allow a 296-unit residential complex and large commerical and retail development to be built on the site of the old Firmenich Citrus Center.
Residents have been voicing their opinions on this subject ever since it came to light that a major residential property developer, the Richman Group of Florida, wanted to build the multi-purpose complex on the northeast corner of McMullen Booth Road and SR590.
The decision to move forward with the development now rests in the hands of the city commission for final approval.
