New proposal for Murphy Oaks development in Venice

New proposal for Murphy Oaks development

VENICE, Fla. (WWSB) - Later this week, the Venice City Council is expected to consider a new proposal plan for the ‘Murphy Oaks’ development.

Earlier this year, the council rejected a new gated community along Auburn Road near Fox Lea Farm after residents complained it was not a good fit for the location. A horse farm sits nearby where loud horse shows take place and there’s concerns that would be too loud for new residents.

Changes have been made to the initial proposal to include a better noise barrier between the new homes and the farm. That plan will be presented to the council.
