RaceTrac proposes spot west of Boynton near Canyon Town Center


RaceTrac wants to build at the northeast corner of Boynton Beach Boulevard and Acme Dairy Road on a portion of a flower nursery just east of Canyon Town Center.

The convenience store would be 5,411 square feet and the RaceTrac would have 24 pumps.

The County Commission will have to approve the project, which is in the Agricultural Reserve. A date has not been set. The majority of the RaceTrac space would be on Acme Dairy Road, according to the site plan.

Kevin Costello owns the 40-acre K & M Nursery there. The RaceTrac would be built on about two acres of the 40, but Costello supports the land owner’s vision.

Owner Tim Linkous has owned the 40 acres since 1978, and said RaceTrac has been interested in the property for about eight years.

K & M Nursery has eight locations in the Ag Reserve and has been there for about 20 years. Costello has been at this location about ten years, he said.

RaceTrac has several Palm Beach County locations including one in Royal Palm Beach , at Southern and Royal Palm Beach boulevards, that opened in November.

Bouquet dianthus reigns supreme for show and cut flowers

This season has been amazing for those of us who have been growing the Bouquet series of dianthus. The flower power of this dianthus is unmatched in the gardening world.
