City Commissioner Allan Katz was given the job to find some alternatives for the eastern electrical transmission line that was supposed to be built down Mahan Drive.
The reason is because residents say they didn't want the lines near their homes. In the process, Katz's idea entails purchasing 450 acres of Welaunee Plantation.
"Owning this piece of property will not only give us the easement for the transmission lines, but enormous opportunity for the city," Commissioner Allan Katz said.
Welaunee Plantation is located between Miccosukee, Fleishman Road, Centerville Road and I-10.
The plan includes using the land for economic development and public use.
