CAPE CORAL, Fla. - Cape Coral City council has given the thumbs up to allow the developer of the Sandoval community to build nearly 50 new single family homes.                          

In exchange they will build 104 fewer multi-family homes.

Sandoval representatives say the change will help them better adjust to the demands of the current housing market.

Councilman Marty McClain tells us that significantly more single family home permits have been pulled this year than last.

He says he commends Sandoval for their ability to change their business model to meet the current demand.
