"I need to live with the product," Beruff said. "It's a good loca- tion, and we had two rounds of tests and t h o s e h a v e c o m e back with no public safety concerns." After county planners heard Beruff's proposal, the developer told The Sarasota News Leader he was reassured by the recent tests and that making certain there are no contamination problems on the property is his "biggest con- cern." The subdivision would be constructed next to, not on top of, the former landfills, Beruff pointed out. Two other subdivisions, Red Hawk and Ashley, are already located in the area. If environmental con- cerns do come up, Beruff said he would reconsider his plans. "There is plenty of land in Florida," he noted. In February 2013, the County Commission rejected a previous development proposal for the old Foxfire Golf Course property. Residents then voiced concerns to the com- missioners about the former landfills. Medallion Home encompasses Land Experts Inc., which proposes the new subdivision on the former grounds of the Foxfire Golf Course in Sarasota County.
