It really is almost as hard to imagine why a community redevelopment program would be a wedge issue as it is to stumble through the logic of your letter.
You do manage to try hard to create a wedge but one has to ask, why? Why not try to use your very fertile creativity to envision a pedestrian friendly vibrant community center with pocket parks and inviting shady areas perhaps with focal points for gathering families and their visitors?
Why do you want to try to divide the community between the businesses and the residents? This is a destructive and overused vehicle used only for wedging issues. The vast majority of small business owners live on the Island and many have raised their children here. The interests of the community as a whole include those who live and work here as well as those with businesses here.
Maybe the redevelopment of the Marco Island center of town is about connecting Veteran’s Park with Town Center and the Esplanade with a pedestrian boulevard or maybe it is about whatever the citizens can dream about to make Marco Island an even more remarkable village for people of all ages to come together and enjoy our special piece of paradise.
Let’s give it a chance. Let’s develop a master plan for our center of town and then decide if we want to proceed by a decision of our democratically elected representatives on the City Council.
