The developer who is proposing to build homes on the Matanzas Woods golf course submitted initial documents to the city on Jan. 29.

The proposed master plan development agreement, or MPD, shows a mixture of single family homes and commercial space, plus some multi-family housing. 

This is the first time the proposal — which would involve construction of about 300 homes — has come before Palm Coast city staff, although developer Alex Ustilovsky of Hammock Real Estate presented it in a packed and contentious community meeting in December.

City staff expect to reply to the submittal by Feb. 20.

Residents receive notices about potential townhouse development

Some residents in the L-Section have also received public notice forms distributed by the Jacksonville District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers about a potential townhouse development with 188 units.

This development — in a rectangle of wooded land bordered by London Drive, Londonderry Drive and Longfellow Drive — is unrelated to the Matanzas Woods golf course property MPD.

The city has not yet received any official submittals about it from the owner, Matanzas Park LLC, according to city Chief Development Officer Jason DeLorenzo.

"We don’t have an application for it," he said. "We hadn’t been heard about it until we had two emails from residents who scanned and emailed the Army Corps report."

The property is already zoned multifamily, he said, and came into the city from the county with that zoning designation when the city was incorporated.
