The Zimmer Construction Consultants in charge of the Swim & Racquet Center of Greater Boca Raton was given a directive recently. They were told that the HOAs should have a say before any more design work is done.

This directive wasn't because the HOAs want to get rid of the project, but because they want to make sure residents get what they want out of this new center. The center will be located at 21626 St. Andrews Boulevard and plans will revamp the current property.

The architect hired for the project. Douglas Mummaw has stated that the company needs guidance…
