In November, 2016, the new zoning for townhouses on the Orchid Bend property has been lost due to inaction by the owner. The land has been returned to Agriculture use only.
The land was sold to Kristi Lacy Bessio and Andrew Bessio. The Bessio’s are clearing the land. Kristi Lacy Bessio owns Lacy’s Landscaping in Boynton Beach, Florida in December 2016.
If you questions, contact Kristi Lacy Bessio at firstname.lastname@example.org her business phone (561) 965-0080.
The legal address for complaints to the County is 5401 Lake Ida Road.
