SEBRING — Six years ago, Ralph Braha wanted a mud bogging park at Swamp Hammock. Although Highlands County Commissioners eventually allowed four events in 2012, Braha gave up on the idea after continued protests from neighbors.
On Tuesday, Braha’s latest idea — a luxurious fly-in community named Botanical Resorts — was also turned down by the Zoning Board of Adjustment. Through marketing director Bryan Pease and attorney Brandon Craig, Braha was requesting to subdivide 430 acres of a 1,202-acre parcel for a 4,800-foot-long runway and 25 to 30 10-acre home parcels for a gated subdivision.
