The Latest Development Proposals for Heron Bay

The Latest Development Proposals for Heron BayIn September of last year, the Parkland city commission held a vote and agreed to purchase 65 acres of the former Heron Bay Golf Course. This was a highly attended meeting by several community members of Parkland anxious to know who would take possession of the land from the North Springs Improvement District.  Many of those in attendance at the meeting for the decision to purchase the land were supportive of the idea.

The city commission purchasing the land means that the city is able to keep Parkland a park-like atmosphere with a controlling stake in the future development of Heron Bay. The city of Parkland purchased the land for $25,410,000. This saves land from being sold off to multiple different developers.

Development of Heron Bay is now moving forward

The city has received several different development proposals for what is known as the dogleg part of the former golf course. They had a meeting on Wednesday, May 17 at 4 PM to receive proposals and discuss or vote on what they feel is the best plan for development moving forward.

This portion of the former golf course is on the eastern side of the development and contains around 21 acres running parallel to Nob Hill Rd. right before the westward turn on Heron Bay Drive. Eleven proposals were received from real estate developers by the city's real estate representation. The selection has been narrowed down to four proposals from developers Ascend Mizner, DR Horton, Kenco communities, and Toll Brothers.

Each proposal comes with its own development plans. The top four current proposals being looked over include between 42 and 63 single-family homes at a range of different purchasing prices. All plans do offer access to new residential properties from Heron Run Drive. Each member of the commission was given a vote for their favorite proposal for development but no final course of action has been decided upon.
