"[The Connerton New Town Development] cited as a national model for suburban development. [The project involves] converting thousands of acres of Pasco County pasture into a new city of 20,000 people...Mentioned in the same breath as Disney's Celebration, the old- style development in Orlando, Connerton promises thousands of homes ringing a city center of shops, a junior college campus, a town hall and a hospital."
