Residents who attended the Oct. 20 Ocoee City Commission meeting had a difficult time holding in their applause as developers of the CSUSA Charter School lost their right to purchase the property located along Clarke Road and Ocoee Vista Parkway.
The developer's contract had an inspection period that was set to expire last Friday. The developer, in order to obtain the special exception for school use, had asked for an extension of the inspection period until Nov. 3 and also requested to move the special exception hearing to Nov. 3.
Commissioner Rosemary Wilsen made a motion to vote on the extension of the contract—but it failed as it did not receive a second. Because the contract was not extended, developers lost the right to purchase the property.
“Are we allowed to applaud in here?” someone called from the audience.
