Palm Beach Speedworld

I have attached a copy of the petition sent to the County Commissioners protesting the development of Palm Beach Speedworld. The Commissioners received hundreds and hundreds of these, resulting in the postponement of the
February 3, 2000 hearing concerning approval of the site. Several of their "points" are simply not true. Read it and judge for yourself. I believe we racers can accomplish the same kind of response from the Commissioners, but in a positive way, if we contact them with overwhelming support for the facility.

Dear Commissioners:
As a property owner in the Jupiter Farms area I am concerned about the proposed development of Palm Beach Speedworld, PDD99-074. You are scheduled to review this development on February 3, 2000. Before deciding whether this proposal is appropriate for this site I hope you consider the negative impacts it will have on our neighborhood.
NOISE from this proposed facility will be intrusive and detrimental; not only to our lifestyle, but to the neighboring wildlife conservation areas. The developers claim that this site is ideal for a motorsports park because this is a “noisy” part of the County. They base this claim on the existing industry and commerce in the area. However, residents here can tell you that the Farms are QUIET and PEACEFUL. Yes, we can hear the occasional jet engine or train, but this is nothing compared to the potential racket of six different motorized venues practicing simultaneously from 8:00 a.m. until 11:00 p.m., seven days a week. There is little doubt that the intrusive qualities of this proposal will also negatively impact the animals and birds who hunt and roost in the newly acquired Pal-Mar Conservation lands; adjacent to the northern border and westward across Pratt Whitney Road.
You must also consider that this facility will be IN ADDITION to the existing and approved events that occur in the area specifically the fact that Moroso Motorsports already has County approval to build a 3/8 mile stock car track on their property. This means that if you approve the Speedworld stock car track, we will have TWO tracks within A MILE OF ONE ANOTHER, and both within 3 miles of Jupiter Farms residences.
Pollution from this proposed facility is also a major concern. All the residents of Jupiter Farms are dependent on well water for drinking and bathing. There is no protection to our groundwater from fuel, oil, and other discharges made onto the dirt tracks and into the jet ski lake. There is also no pre-treatment planned for any stormwater washing over this site. Instead the plan is to drain straight into the canal system which eventually discharges into the Loxahatchee River.
In addition there are concerns over increased traffic on Indiantown Road, potential decrease in our property values, and safety for our young people. This proposal claims to provide a place for young people to ride their ATVs in a legal and safe manner. However, there is minimal space for any real riding, and more importantly there is NO LEGAL MANNER for riders to reach this facility without carting the vehicles out on trailers.
We hope you see how detrimental and inappropriate a motorsports park would be on this particular site. We plead with you to use common sense and address the concerns of thousands of property owners in the Jupiter Farms Community by not approving this development.
