Deltona/ The Mackles genius?
They sure did know how greed worked.They bulldozed and dredged every inch of the island...till the Government "shut them down." They chopped the Island up into to small lots...to maximize their profits.They set aside green space because they were mandated to do so...not out of the goodness of their greedy hearts.They "set deed restrictions" because Deltona conducted questionnaires of every prospective buyer...asking what they wanted in a community...in order to sell the mosquito infested Island they had purchased.Deltona then proceeded to destroy the ecological structure of the area...just as they have in many developments they have built elsewhere.
You came to the Island in 1992 ...looking to relocate. I was born and raised on this Island.I'm 57 yrs old now. Let ME tell you what they did...through their "Genius Vision."
BTW...the term is "ten cent millionaires." The term some have referred to in regards to some residents of Marco Island.
