The long-planned Palmer Place development has reappeared. The firm behind the project filed pre-submit- tal documents with the county on July 10, and representatives of the developer appeared before the county's Development Review Committee (DRC) on Thursday, July 17. The proposal for 300 market-rate and 300 affordable homes east of Interstate 75 was approved by the County Commission in 2008 after the developer scaled back the plans. A representative for the developer declined to talk to The Sarasota News Leader after the DRC meeting Thursday. "There is no story here," said the person, who was not identified during the meeting and declined to offer his name. "This is procedural." The DRC meeting was one step in the pro- cess required for developer Billy Springer to finalize his plans and begin construction of the homes on 412 acres of property at Palmer Boulevard and Iona Road in Sarasota. An aerial map in an application submitted to county staff last year shows the location of the Palmer Place development.
