PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla. — A protest was held Tuesday in opposition of a new development in western Delray Beach.

The Pam Beach County Common Sense Development Coalition was created to oppose the Terra Nova development project proposed at Hagan Ranch Road and Atlantic Avenue.

Chopper 5 flew over the scene just after 10 a.m. and spotted around 30 people holding signs protesting the development. Some of the signs read, "Safety, Yes, Terra Nova, No" and "No Drive Through Restaurants."

The project plans to build 212 apartments on 23,665 square feet of commercial space that would also include restaurants.

The CSDC, which hosted the protest march, consists of 26 area communities. The protest was scheduled to last until noon Tuesday.
