Oh for crying out loud. The MICA newsletter editors wrote a scorching article throwing fear into its membership claiming that the redevelopment would mean thousands of people would be moving into the high rises that would be built in the town center increasing the density and causing bedlam in the streets!
The article was filled with distortions about communities bankrupted by CRAs (there have actually never been any bankrupt communities as a result of a CRA) and rampant corruption and plague and pestulance...
No wonder they got the results they intended to get. When you have to win by deception and integrity is nowhere to be found, what does that say about the way Fay Biles and the naysayers are running things?
The folks heading up MICA should be ashamed of themselves. But those of us who have lived here a long time, know that will never happen. They are so afraid of losing more power. They were the little princes of the Island before it became a City. They are self important guardians (more like condo commandos though) of the deed restrictions Deltona handed them and constantly refer to the deeds restrictions as "The Master Plan" (even though there isn't one) for Marco Island.
So now that another entity, such as a Community Redevelopment Agency, begins to look promising, they try to kill the baby in the crib before it can chip away more at their dwindling power base.
This is just more of the same dig your heels in and just say no to any promising idea that they do not control.
