Many of the bloggers above do not give a hoot about students on Marco. They are more concerned about fighting against Sloar Panels. This conversation needs to start over again and everyone needs to express their opinion, and develop their opinion, with the understanding that CCSB is NOT going to build any school on this property. Lely, and it's proximity, legally meets their (CCSB) obligation to Marco and doing anything on Marco to buid another High School, dilutes an already "empty" Lely. There will not be any money coming from CCSB or Collier County for any School on Tract K. They have said that, and we need to accept that. All the wonderful ideas about what type of school would be great are relevant only if those proposing them understand that it would have to be funded by Marco Island taxpayers. Maybe a Private High School is the answer ?? We would need to study out years (10 plus) to estimate cost and demand. Everyone needs to accept the fact that no money is forthcoming from CCSB and Lawsuits have already been lost, at State Supreme Court Level (City of Naples), arguing getting money back from CCSB and Collier County. So who wants to pony up the money to build a school ?? I do not know what should be done, or can be done, with this land, but it will not be a school unless Marco Island pays for it. Period, end of story.Ed Issler
