Residents Against the Location of Drug Rehab Hosp

LOCAL RESIDENTS FILE LAWSUIT AGAINST ST. LUCIE COUNTY’S RECENT SITE APPROVAL FOR A 220 BED FACILITY ON SOUTH HUTCHINSON ISLAND

A lawsuit has been filed against St. Lucie County seeking both a declaratory judgement and injunctive relief. Our claim is that the recent County approval to rezone 22 acres on this barrier island from Residential to a Planned Non-Residential Development in order to accommodate the building of a 220-bed drug and alcohol treatment center is not consistent with our local Comprehensive Plan.
After legal review of County staff memorandums, traffic reports, zoning and land use designations and environmental concerns, it is apparent that exceptions were made by the County that may not comply with the applicable law.
We live on a unique barrier island located in south St. Lucie County. It is a residential area with a low population density. People have moved here, relying on the area’s Comprehensive Plan maintaining the area as residential. With the County’s recent decision to allow the building of a 220-bed facility, the overall landscape of this island will be forever changed.
We are requesting that the Court declare the County ‘s approval of the Subject Development to be void, invalid and inconsistent with the Comprehensive Plan. In addition, we are asking the Court to permanently prevent the County from implementing the development order(s) by any means.
