Why Developers are spending $377,700 to Privatize our Green Space


It’s so they can develop any piece of land that remains in Downtown Boca Raton to turn a profit!

Here who is funding the campaign to defeat the Boca Raton residents’ petition to preserve the precious downtown green space:

Please Tell Our Sponsors You Saw Them on BocaWatch

  • $230,000 – Changing Florida’s Future, PC (A Tallahassee group whose interest is to defeat the city of Boca Raton Question).
  • $64,500 – Mike Arts’ ForBoca.Org, Inc. (Arts is the former President of the Boca Raton Chamber of Commerce).

  • $200 – Mark Guzzetta (Developer – responsible for the Archstone, now Palmetto Promenade project, on Palmetto Park Road east of Mizner Blvd.)

These people and special interest groups are misleading you so they can develop the Intracoastal green space – a space you paid for with your tax dollars.

Please vote yes to keep our Intracoastal waterfront land green for the use of all the people.

Once gone, it is gone forever.

A yes vote preserves our waterfront land and parks for you to enjoy; for recreation and with the concessions needed to make your park experience enjoyable.

This issue concerns all the waterfront lands; this is not about a single location. All of the public’s Intracoastal land is at risk.

Your vote is your voice!!!

Vote yes on the Boca Raton question. Yes to preserve our city!

  1. Good article Al. I can see where Hillstone would be OK with a $50K investment to defeat the citizens so Hillstone can get the sweetheart lease deal: https://bocawatch.org/open-letter-to-boca-raton-restaurant-operators/ Why the Boca Raton Chamber of Commerce and Investments Limited would invest in this is not so clear. In the Hillstone lease agreement the City pays Hillstone’s property taxes for 45 years and assumes all inflation risk. This is a competitive disadvantage to all existing restaurant operators in Boca. It seems that the Chamber of Commerce and Investments Limited should be more concerned for all of Boca’s citizens and businesses.

  2. These developers are on to something.

    Perhaps they plan to buy the land for a dime … and then, out of “civic altruism”, sell it back to the City … for a DOLLAR!

    This type of cronyism must stop.

    We don’t need the overdevelopment and grid lock that has befallen the City of Fort Lauderdale.
