DEBARY — Within the southwestern a part of the town you may discover about 170 acres of pure property that have not suffered the impacts of growth.

Officers with the town and the Aquatic Protect Alliance of Central Florida need to preserve it that means.

“There’s only a world of alternative to actually flip this right into a one-of-a-kind nature park,” Metropolis Supervisor Carmen Rosamonda stated. “It is a bit piece of heaven.”

The property alongside the banks of the St. Johns River is at the moment in a belief with a price ticket of $3.9 million, and the present zoning would permit for homes to be constructed on elements of the positioning, Rosamonda stated.

Practically 153 acres are freshwater marsh, and 17 acres are forested uplands.

The supervisor stated he would not need to see a plethora of outdated oak bushes taken down for the growth of housing, particularly with the Major Avenue challenge already within the works.
