Yes it is true that the new Veterans Community Park is not developed yet. However, there has been extensive design work done. Also last night at the City Council meeting the Marco Island VFW Post presented the city with a check for 10,000. This money will be put towards the Veterans Memorial that will be constructed within the new park. I believe the Veterans Memorial will be one of the first phases of the new park. Our Veterans deserve a place big enough to accommodate a proper memorial. They also deserve a location that allows easy access to visit and remember friends and family members.
I realize it is hard to keep up with all the things that happen on the island, but this is a good thing. Veterans Community Park when completed will give Marco Island a much needed town center where all islanders can congregate. My hope is the park when completed will provide a much needed sense of community.
The old (Smaller Veterans Park) will be renamed Founders Park. The idea is to use this park to recognize members of the Marco Community that helped or will help to make Marco what it is and what it will become.
In the end we all need to get away from using the comment section to belittle each other (Heck I have said some things on here I wish I could take back). We have to move toward healing the island. We also have to listen to both sides before we sit down and hastily write a comment. I think if everyone took a little time they would learn that we all want the same thing.
