GAINESVILLE - Alachua County commissioners have voted to take the first steps towards developing a new mixed-use community in northwest Gainesville.
The commission voted 4-to-1 in favor of moving forward with initial plans for the development, tentatively titled "Park Avenue at Santa Fe". The current plan is to construct the complex right off Northwest 39th Avenue near the Spring Hill area of town.
It will include about 300 apartments, and over 30,000 square feet of retail and office space. A handfull of nearby residents spoke out at tonight's meeting, concerned that the new development will hurt their homes' value.
Susan Baird was the only commissioner to vote against the proposal. The community planning group will now discuss the issue in detail later on this week.
