Folks, pay attention, this community needs more folks like Joe Rola et al who are not afraid to ask the pertinent questions.
What we get is a city sponsored P&R committee that in essence considers costs with a very limited view especially with regard to the impact of its citizens. Remember, the citizens NEEDED a culinary teaching facility to be included in its design, as well as an air conditioned gym.
Folks, time to pay attention, or else the city will go on its merry way down the yellow brick road to a land of Oz, a land that is devoid of reality and vision.
From this city, we have a larger than life waste treatment facility that is overcapacity and could perhaps handle a population twice the its current peak during season.
I find it interesting that the P&R went down the same path with a Community Center that began as a 40K ft2 facility.
Is this a planning pattern? Larger than needed waste treatement facility, larger than needed Community Center. Well if you talk to folks who have lived on this island for decades, they will advise you that the city is planning for a community twice its current population.
Please, tell me I hope they are wrong am wrong,because this is not what we fell in love. But the reality: all the city initiatives embrace "progress" with size. And it could be expressed with a famous McDonald ad campaign, now documented as the "Supersize" strategy.
Well folks, welcome to Marco Island, we can supersize your island.
