Ironwood funding ‘in jeopardy’ if deal not signed by December deadline

The Ironwood Development Group said if the December deadline to sign on the project is missed, its funding could be in jeopardy.

Ironwood, reacting to the National Conservation Council’s decision to require an Environmental Impact Assessment for the 10 mile extension to the East/West arterial, said it has kept environmental concerns top of mind from the very outset of the project.

In a statement, Ironwood outlined the environmental efforts it has undertaken since the project began in 2013. Ironwood pointed out it even re-routed the East/West Arterial due to concerns from the National Trust about potential impacts on the Mastic Trail. Additionally, Ironwood postponed construction activities on the Arnold Palmer golf course in order to accommodate the blue iguana nesting season.

“Now that the road has been rerouted, none of the land the proposed road will traverse through is protected and there are no national parks in the area,” said Ironwood’s written statement.

Work is expected to begin on clearing the land December first. In the meantime, the developer is moving ahead under the assumption the private public partnership to build the road will be signed in December as well.
