Fossil, I need another cup of coffee you're making me laugh too much. It's really sad that there are people like you in the world, you do not have the ability to see things rationally and you don't know the difference between right and wrong.
The renaming of Veterans' Memorial Park on Collier and Barfield Blvds is very simple. Useless Park with a special Thank you placard listing the names of all City Council Persons who voted to make it a Park!
kosherdeli, Veterans Community Park became a park by referendum which means that the voters voted to purchase the land and make it a park. You obviously havent attended the Christmas Tree Lighting, the Farmers Market or any of a hundred other events at the park. You didn't even know that "We the People" voted for the park!
Liberator100; AKA Montel Lazarus, do you ever feel like you even repulse your own friends?
jchamberland...I believe kosherdeli means the little useless plot of a park at Collier & Barfield. The one that's only purpose is signs advertising the Famers Market.

What to Name City Hall
If you are from the Rob Popoff School of Protecting, Respecting and Tolerating the Rights of Others Exercising their 1st Amendment Right of Free Speech:The City of Marco Island Marxist Hall
If you are from the sludge the oozes behind closed-doors and arranges for surprise items to be voted on and then show up by "coincidence" to speak supporting the unscheduled item:The Syndicate Puppet Factory
If you still believe that the STRP was put in motion because septic tanks were polluting the waterways:The Patterson "There Be Fecal" Emporium
After the feds prosecute for violating the Clean Water Act and the Clean Air Act:They All Worked or Laboured Here before They Got Indicted
So exactly why did several councilors claim that Charlie Crist personally told them that the City will get a sewer system "whether the citizens wanted it or not" at about the same time that the partner of a city councilor was appointed to Crist's Commissioner of the Florida Elections Commission:The Syndicate-to-Crist Good 'Ol Boy Club Meeting Hall
In memory of he who publicly boasted to deleting emails about city business from citizens he did not like (and unlike his colleague not getting prosecuted) and lying about having photographs of people planting asbestos:E. Glenn Tucker et. Al.
And to prove that there is consistency and that rules are always applied uniformly, the Syndicate will ensure that their ilk and those in the now defunct Celebrate Marco show up to support the following name, and when African-Americans or Hispanics or Orientals or anyone who is one of "those people" stand up to decry the name, they are escorted out of the building because after all the individual for whom city hall is to be named is "not here to defend himself":William Joseph Simmons Memorial Building
Named after the ONLY two idiots stupid enough to put themselves at risk by repeatedly measuring toxic levels of hydrogen sulfide in the air, hydrogen sulfide and sulfuric acid in the waters and stupidly believing that the Crist-FDEP-Tucker-Minozzi-Popoff-Trotter cabal would act or vote to at least temporarily stop damaging the health of people and the environment, and for believing that anyone else could give a flying F$%&!@K:Godfrey Davies and Mario Sanchez Hall for the Naively Dim-witted
If you want to know who paid for it:Quality Enterprise Park
To commemorate he who contributed the parking to very same City Hall being named while being stupid enough to solicit a "patient" (presumably not a mental one) while said patient was recording him:Andrew Guidry Halfway House
If you want to give it an apt name:District 9
If you want to give it an honest name based on who really runs the place:Syndicate Hall
… but seriously,
If you are an American that values free speech and those that speak the truth:The Robert Glaub Democracy Citizens Centre.
Sorry kosherdeli I was mistaken, I know what park you are talking about and agree, it's a total waste.
