    Palm Beach County Commission rejects new town proposal


    In the end it was really bad timing for the developer: water shortages, a depressed housing market, and huge road infrastructure shortfalls. Plus, the opponents came out in full force, which included three neighboring jurisdictions.

    But PBC commissioners did the right thing, as they did in rejecting the western Scripps site last year. The whole notion that this would be a new town was just an attempt to put lipstick on a pig- a 10,000-home hog actually. It seems that the county has finally wisened up after years of broken promises from developers.
