It'll be Rangeland Parkway

A sign soon to change. (Herald photo)

There was high drama for a few years about the proposed ice hockey rink and multipurpose entertainment complex at Lakewood Ranch.

DVA Sports, the developer,  moved the franchise here from Columbus, Ga., and spent millions before running out of money.

After plenty of legal wrangling, developer Schroeder-Manatee Ranch reclaimed the land and knocked down the unsafe walls of the stillborn arena.

When it was all over, there remained a Center Ice Parkway. It might seemed strange to someone who didn't know the history of the place to see such a name out in the middle of what had been farmland.

This week it was announced that Taylor Morrison's Esplanade, a active lifestyle community, is going into the area at Pope Road and Center Ice Parkway.

The old name obviously no longer works and it will become Rangeland Parkway.
