After failed attempts to develop its 3,900-acre citrus farm on Seminole Pratt Whitney Road, Callery-Judge Grove could become Palm Beach County's newest city.
The Florida Senate on Thursday gave final approval to a bill (SB 692) that would allow the special improvement district surrounding the grove to incorporate.
If approved by Gov. Rick Scott, voters could ask the improvement district's governing board to convert to a municipality. Ulitmately, a majority of the district's voters would have to approve the measure.
Seminole Improvement District, which includes Callery-Judge, is one of a handful across the state that would be allowed to incorporate under the legislation.
West Palm Beach attorney Bob Diffenderfer, who represents both Callery-Judge and the improvement district, could not be reached for comment Thursday.
