Although all homeowners living within 200
feet of the proposed project were notified prior to
Tuesday's scheduled meeting, the homeowners association was
not alerted by mail as required by city code, according to
City Clerk Rosemarie Call. Two other hearings scheduled for
Tuesday for projects on Gulf to Bay Boulevard and Eldorado
Avenue were also postponed because their respective
homeowners associations were not notified.
An employee in the city clerk's office realized the error on
Monday morning, Call said.
Neighbors around Agami's property, a vacant lot near the
corner of Sunset Point Road and Edgewater Drive, have
organized a staunch campaign against the 80-unit, 86-foot
tall proposal for its height and impact on surrounding
one-and two story homes. They have also questioned
assurances from the developers, who are Scientologists, that
the project is not tied to the Church of Scientology.
This condo would be the second residential project in
Clearwater by Agami, CEO of Valor Capital, and his
father-son partners Elias and Diego Jafif. The developers
also built the SkyView on Cleveland Street.
Valor Capital CEO Moises Agami, and his father-son
partners Elias and Diego Jafif, is proposing a 7-story, 86-foot
condo on the vacant lot at Edgewater Drive and Sunset Point Road.
