The third Love Street plan along the Jupiter Inlet was supposed to have a preliminary vote Tuesday night before the Planning and Zoning board.

However, that didn't happen.

Teri Grooms was once again there to voice her opposition.

"In total, it's just the Jupiter Inlet. It doesn't need more retail and restaurants on it. It overburdens A1A, which is a two-lane road," said Groom.

The latest plan is an amended version of a larger plan approved last year, which reduces the amount of development from 4 to 2 acres.

On Tuesday night, the board tabled their vote because several board members had concerns about potential conflicts of interest.

"We're obviously disappointed we weren't able to move forward," said land planner Donaldson Hearing.

He can't see why anyone would be opposed to this new plan.

"Low scale. We have only one two-story development. It's very, very low scale, and as you know it's on one of the most beautiful waterways in Palm Beach County," said Hearing.

The board is expected to vote next month.
