A controversial plan to transform an area along Agualinda Boulevard and Beach Parkway into apartment complexes is about to take center stage in Cape Coral.
Neighbors who live in the area like the peace and quiet of their neighborhood, and some say they don’t want a big development in their backyard.
The City of Cape Coral is set to vote to rezone this area to accommodate multifamily housing.
The current zoning code allows for 238 multifamily units to be developed on three of the four corners. Monday, the city is looking at what kind of commercial development will go in one of the quadrants…the other 3 are planned for residential housing.
For months, neighbors who live near the intersection have spoken against the proposal.
“Our property values and the influx that 510 units with possibly two vehicles per unit, which would come out to over 1,000 vehicles, would not do good to our neighborhood,” said Jim Michalski, who is a resident in the area.
The council is set to vote on the proposal at its Monday meeting.
