This morning’s headline, “10,000-home Avalon Park project moving ahead” in our local newspaper turned my stomach.
The article, written by Clayton Park, informed us that, Beat Kahil, the developer, is predicting confidently, he’ll break ground for this massive project in Daytona Beach some time in 2023.
Predicting confidently? I can only imagine what that implies.
And ten thousand more homes is not what our area needs. We are over developed now.
Who is Beat Kahil? The name sounds fictitious to me.
A Googled search revealed the picture above and the information below.
Today’s article was nothing but favorable. No mention of the environmental impact, stripping the trees, changed zoning, or the strain on our hospitals and schools. The tone of the article hailed this developer’s achievement and success. Evidently he turned Orlando into a parking lot, not too long ago.
The article does discuss: building permits issued in 2021 by the City of Daytona, traffic concerns detailed by Maryam Ghyabi, the Ormond Beach engineering and transportation planning consultant chairing the LPGA Coalition and the fact that water and sewer services for Avalon Park Daytona Beach will be provided by the City of Ormond Beach.
All that happen while we were sleeping.
Nevertheless, Beat Kahil is confidently predicting his vision to create an entire town, will begin in 2023.
I’m confidently predicting it will be our worst nightmare.
. . . just saying
