The owner of Bedner’s Farm Fresh Market, a popular agricultural attraction, has proposed rezoning part of its land west of Boynton Beach for industrial development.
Bedner Brothers Farms, managed by Stephen Bedner, filed a land use amendment with Palm Beach County officials concerning 14 acres of the 19-acre site at 10066 Lee Road, on the west side of U.S. 441.
The Bedner family proposed changing the zoning of the strawberry and pumpkin fields from agricultural to commerce/light industrial, which would allow up to 274,428 square feet of industrial uses. That could include warehouses, flex office/warehouse or self-storage facilities. However, the five-acre site including the farmer’s market would be preserved through a conservation easement.
The land use amendment will require County Commission approval. A hearing before the board is tentatively scheduled for Nov. 1.
