West Palm Beach to settle suit with church for $65,000

From Florida-

A man-made trinity of mangrove islands off Flagler Drive has come with a terrestrial cost not envisioned when the environmental project won approval.

Holy Trinity Episcopal Church of West Palm Beach is scheduled to win city approval for a $65,000 settlement Dec. 7. The payment would end a 2013 lawsuit in which the church asserted the project would block its waterfront views and deny its right to build a 40-slip dock. The settlement follows a $160,000 payment to which the county agreed in October.

Under the settlement, the city and county affirm the property owner’s right to seek permits for a dock, should the church site be sold to a condo developer, for example. The church’s attorney, Robert Yerkes, has said previously, however, that no such sale is in the works.
