All Aboard Florida will not attend the next meeting of the Florida Development Finance Corp., tentatively scheduled for July 21 in Orlando, a company official said.

“AAF is not attending this meeting,” spokeswoman Lynn Martenstein said Friday.

The finance corporation has refused to comment on the June 21 meeting agenda and whether All Aboard Florida’s application for $1.75 billion of tax-exempt private activity bonds would be discussed.

The quasi-state-government agency originally was to discuss and rule on the $3 billion Miami-to-Orlando passenger-rail project’s financing application May 28, but canceled that meeting, citing scheduling conflicts for All Aboard Florida representatives. The corporation later canceled a June 10 meeting.

Martenstein said she only learned of the June 21 meeting from an article in Treasure Coast Newspapers.
