Residents speak out about building on golf course in Boca Raton

BOCA RATON, Fla. - Eight hours of talking and there's still no decision on whether a developer can build homes on a closed golf course in Boca Raton.

Residents living in or near Boca Del Mar spoke out today during the Palm Beach County Commissioner's meeting.

Residents were hoping commissioners would make a decision. Instead, commissioners advised both sides to meet and try and find a solution in the next few months on what to do with the property.

Resident Arnold Ahlert said, "At this rate that's exactly what they are doing. they are looking for a way to get this back to the drawing board and seeing if they can work out a compromise."

Both sides will go before county commissioners on June 26.
