The Work Crews progressed down Casper east side, then down Casper Drives West Side and continue onto Clark Lane, then Collins Lane, etc.  Since the 'Company' required an 'Official Guided Tour' it was imperative to complete the first line showing the Showcase Neighborhood quickly with the required 'Official Guided Tour' on this leg final destination the 'Palm Coast Golf Course', now known as the Palm Harbor Golf Course. The now other entrance area now on Palm Harbor Drive extension had not been completed for the first phases of the required 'Official Guided Tour'.  ( Palm Harbor Drive is the extension of  ( Dr. J.
