Developer faces backlash over Cape Coral golf course development
CAPE CORAL, Fla. — A developer wants to build houses over the abandoned Cape Coral Country Club.
DR Horton, a national home builder, wants to change the property’s future land use from recreation to residential so they can build homes.
However, not all residents are happy about it; some neighbors want to keep the peace and quiet while others believe the golf club is an eyesore.
A DR Horton representative told WINK News the company has worked “very carefully and patiently” with the community to create a neighborhood that blends in well with their surroundings, even making financial cutbacks to their original plan due to opposition from residents.
The company submitted a land use change application but no public hearing has been scheduled at this time.
