Key West residents overwhelmingly decided to lease more than three acres of land in Bahama Village for affordable housing.
Unofficial results showed that 69.3% of the voters gave the lease proposal a thumbs-up and 31% out of 2,646 voters disapproved of allowing a company to build 118 units of affordable housing on city-owned land.
Nearly 17% of the city’s 15,865 voters turned out to vote, according to the Monroe County Supervisor of Elections Office.
The Navy gave the land to the city in 2002. The new workforce housing development will be called the Lofts at Bahama Village.
