November 25, 2015 – Sun-Sentinel:  Five years and a seven-hour city meeting later, the Boca Raton City Council has approved a plan to develop the city’s last vacant parcel of land: a prized nearly 80-acre tract in east Boca now known as “University Village.”

In a 4-1 vote about 1:15 a.m. Wednesday, the City Council decided to rezone the land just north of Florida Atlantic University to allow for more construction than was previously approved for the lot….

Councilman Scott Singer was the sole vote against both the rezoning and the master plan.

“Make no mistake, approving this type of malleable zoning will easily be the most significant moment in land use in our city’s history,” Singer said before the vote. He added that those voting in favor of the proposal may down the road regret it.
