New Development Update
Property development on SHI is very active this year, as you have probably seen. Baron Island Storage has begun construction and land has been cleared in the areas of OceanGlass (28 townhomes) across from Atlantis, and Sea Oats (4 townhomes) & Missy’s Beach House (single family) across from Islandia. St. Lucie County’s Land Development Code (LDC) includes a section specific to Hutchinson Island Residential Development (HIRD) to ensure that the unique characteristics of our barrier island are protected. There are several vacant parcels that have caught the interest of developers who are discussing plans that exceed zoning and development codes, such as encroaching on shoreline protection setbacks and wetland buffers, exceeding 35’ building height limit and alcohol sales nearby county parks. As requests for waivers and amendments are submitted for County Commissioner consideration, PC will alert you to dates and details to encourage your support of existing zoning and development codes to protect the environment and residents of SHI.
