After more than four hours of discussion, and 27 speakers from the public, Vero Beach City Council voted 3-2 to not accept either the County or the developer offers to buy the former Dodgertown golf course property. Most speakers advocated for either the County or the developer’s plan, but Peter Robinson, longtime local developer of Laurel Homes properties, made the point that any developer must go through the planning process with City staff to even determine if the project was feasible, so it is way too early to make a decision. Councilman Laura Moss suggested a third alternative, which is not to do either. In the end, after making a motion that was seconded by Councilman Lange Sykes. Councilman Tony Young joined them, leaving Val Zudans and Mayor Harry Howle in favor of the developer.
