Support Housing, But Don't Neglect Deerlake
Last updated 5/4/2020 at 10:23am
Tore Borhaug is planning to build a major development next to the Deerlake Village community, one that he says will provide affordable housing for workers and retirees. Borhaug has asked the city of Brevard to treat his development as a Planned Development District (PDD) and exempt it from many of the zoning regulations that would otherwise apply.
We very much support affordable housing for workers and retirees, including housing adjacent to Deerlake Village. However, we oppose relaxing zoning regulations that protect the safety, privacy and home values of Deerlake Village residents.
