Selva Marina to Sell Portion of Property for New Residential Development

13 03 2007

Selva Marina Country Club Inc. has cleared the first hurdle toward selling the southern portion of its property for residential development.

After a lengthy debate the Atlantic Beach City Commission voted unanimously, with one commissioner absent, to submit to the state Department of Community Affairs a proposed amendment to the city’s Future Land Use Map changing the designation of the property from recreation/open space to residential, low density.

Club President Alan Ennis is analyzing four private developer proposals to buy the property and transform it into 80 to 108 single and multi-family units. The money the member-owned club earns from the sale will be used to fund the estimated $16 million worth of needed renovations that are necessary, he said, to help keep the club open for business.

Residents of Selva Linkside II directly south of the current boundaries of Selva Marina are not happy with the proposal. The homeowner’s association has hired attorneys and plans to appeal the property owners’ request to rezone the land to a planned unit development.

The commission’s recent decision does not include an action on the zoning change or a specific plan for the development.
