Wearing red shirts, opponents have attended town council meetings and said the plan will bring too much traffic and pollution to Jupiter’s Inlet Village.

Finally — after three years of revisions, lawsuits and public hearings — the Love Street plan to build an outdoor marketplace on the Jupiter Inlet is scheduled for a final vote before the town council Thursday, Sept. 7.

See full story in The Palm Beach Post.

Love Street developer Charles Modica says the outdoor marketplace will bring recreation, jobs and tax revenue to Jupiter.
