To All Citizens: You are finally encouraged to attend tomorrow night's Council (12-6-10) meeting and express your opinion about a Charter High school being located on Marco Island. This is in response to, and opposed to, the ridiculous position expressed in the e-mail below:From: ChairMarcoAcademy To: Undisclosed-recipients: Sent: Friday, December 03, 2010 11:40 PMSubject: URGENT-CITY COUNCIL MEETING MONDAY!!!!!!!!!!IF YOU WANT HIGH SCHOOL ON MARCO PLEASE ATTEND-Wear Green!
After searching appx 18 properties on island for a temporary location for the high school, we have run out of options. I have asked the district for the property they own on island and they have denied it to us. Every property I have investigated on island has:
1. MICA deed restrictions2. Zoning restrictions3. Neighbors who don't want it4. Not affordable for a school.
I am going to ask the council if they are willing to give us a solution. I have spent the last 18 months trying to find a location but have been blocked every single time. Either the City, MICA, etc. makes an exception and sees the value that the school will bring and finds a location for us or they will force us off the island.
PLEASE SHOW UP MONDAY NIGHT. I WILL BE THE 1ST SPEAKER. 5:30 p.m. at the Community Room, 51 Bald Eagle Drive, Marco Island
I CANNOT EXPRESS HOW IMPORTANT THIS MEETING IS-IF YOU WANT THE SCHOOL PHYSICALLY LOCATED ON MARCO YOU NEED TO SHOW UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Talk about a "spoiled brat" syndrome !! This e-mail is written with the assumption that Marco wants this school, and that Marco island has any responsibility to this School.Please show up and express yourself. You have been doing it in the blogs, now it is time to let the City know how you feel.Ed Issler
