DR Horton, The Palms, a new community on Palmer Road (coming soon?)

Sarasota Communities Real Estate

What is currently a single family home, horse steeples, and a horse track, seems to be getting rezoned for a new single family home community on Palmer and Tatum Road. This property was once up for sale back in the real estate bubble days of 2005. Now national home builder, DR Horton wants to develop a new single family community called “The Palms” on this acreage and put in 46 single family homes. You can read the full details about “The Palms” by DR Horton on The Sarasota County Website for Zoning

The property is 23.26 acres. There are planned trails and safer access for biking and walking around this future community. They’re proposing just 34% of this parcel for development. The preserve and trees on the northeast and eastern side are to mostly remain intact.

While I tend to stay away from giving my personal opinion on these topics (unless asked:-), I personally welcome the improvements to this part of Palmer Road. The road needs to be newly paved in this proximity, and for cyclists, it can only help by giving them a smooth surface less the patches over the potholes. I also think it’s a nice option for all of us in this eastern location to have a public walking trail to expand our walking options.
