FHA Lifts Cancer Warning On Acreage Homes

THE ACREAGE — Yet another black cloud is dissipating over The Acreage.

The Federal Housing Administration has lifted a warning it imposed in August advising appraisers that a state-declared cancer cluster might harm home values in the central Palm Beach County community.

The FHA removed the alert on Sept. 15. It was the same day the Florida Department of Health sent a letter to families who are part of the cluster investigation, saying that interviews it conducted with them still show no cause for the area's elevated rates of childhood brain cancer.

The letter also said the interviews revealed that "longer residency in the Acreage study area posed no higher risk for brain tumors among children."
