A developer hopes to convert 239.6 acres worth of vacant, wooded land south of State Road 100 and the Flagler Executive Airport into a community of over 500 homes.

The Seminole Palms development would have 451 single-family detached sites plus another 78 single-family attached townhomes about a mile and a half south of S.R. 100 on the west side of Seminole Wood Boulevard.

The city of Palm Coast’s Planning and Land Development Regulation Board at a Sept. 15 meeting voted 6-0 in favor of a rezoning that would replace the several zoning designations currently on the land — general commercial, single-family residential, and public/semipublic — with the Master Planned Development designation. 

The board also voted 6-0 in favor of the developer’s request to change the Future Land Use Map designation for 37.7 acres of the property from mixed use and undesignated to residential, with a policy limiting development to a density of three units per acre rather than the current 15 per acre.

The city has worked out an agreement with the developer to swap land to allow the city a right-of-way along Citation Boulevard — which the developer plans to extend — for emergency services access, saving the city from needing to build another fire station in the area to improve its emergency response times. 

The development would be built in phases, starting with the extension of Citation Boulevard and the construction of the 78 townhomes, followed by the creation of an amenity center and 155 single-family detached homes. Later phases would add more homes.
