Cassidy Homes has assembled 375 acres just east of U.S. 17-92 in the Davenport/Haines City submarket and is seeking a land use change to allow up to 1,875 homes.

Cassidy, one of East Polk County's most prolific land developers, already owns 155 acres of the assemblage, which is bounded on the east by Powerline Road and Baker Dairy Road to the south.

The Winter Haven developer has purchase contracts for the adjacent parcels, which are owned by the Landini and Mack families and are in unincorporated Polk County.

Cassidy has requested a pre-application meeting with Polk's Development Review Committee to discuss a large scale map amendment to allow for low-density residential uses with a maximum of 5 dwelling units per acre.

Cassidy has been extremely active in the Haines City area this year, having already scored permits and city approval for a 367-lot subdivision on Haines City's Scenic Highway. Meanwhile, Davenport's City Commission approved a 93-lot subdivision and another 457-lot subdivision, both on U.S. 17-92.
