Citizens Against Golf Course Redevelopment, Inc. started this petition to City of Parkland Commission and

As concerned citizens of Parkland and Coral Springs, Florida, we are fighting to stop a huge commercial development planned for Heron Bay. There is a plan to develop 69 acres of pristine land on Coral Ridge Drive and Nob Hill Road within the Heron Bay residential community. The planned commercial development includes 47 acres in Parkland and 22 acres in Coral Springs.

North Springs Improvement District ("NSID") (our water utility organization) is in the final stages of an agreement to acquire the Heron Bay Golf Course from ClubLink. NSID is then planning to sell 69 acres of the golf course to a developer for purposes of building one of the largest commercial developments in the State of Florida! 

Three proposals have been submitted, ranging from 500,000 square feet of retail space to 800,000 square feet, which would make the shopping center one of the 25 largest in the State of Florida. By way of comparison, City Place in West Palm Beach has 600,000 square feet of space; The Promenade in Coconut Creek has less than 300,000 square feet of space; and Mizner Park in Boca Raton has less than 400,000 square feet of space.

In addition to filling up the roadside on Nob Hill, the Heron Bay Shopping Center will engulf many homes within Heron Bay. Parkland will be the new shopping, restaurant, and bar destination city of South Florida. This is not good for Parkland, and particularly not good for those in the shopping center’s proximity. Goodbye quiet, peaceful, residential lifestyle. Hello, loud noise at all hours of the night (every night), traffic and more people coming to our community. 

The current proposals include three-story office buildings, and as building codes and noise ordinances are lifted, we can expect up to 50 foot high structures (twice as high as the surrounding homes), and an extremely busy, loud environment.

Please sign our petition and tell the Parkland and Coral Springs Commissions to negotiate a deal with NSID to purchase the land and keep Heron Bay green!
