To quote Mr. Sacher (which will happen a lot during the campaign) "the vision and direction of Marco Island's future – tourist attraction or stay true to the Mackle Brothers/Deltona vision." Well, to be fair to all concerned, Mr. Sacher quickly forgets about what the Mackle Brothers desired and envisioned for Tract K, which was, and still is, for this property to be a school. In addition, the vision of Deltona (Mackle Brothers) was for the Island to have a great deal of tourism to form the basis of an economy and tax base for Marco Island. I suggest Mr. Sacher call Deltona in Miami and speak to the current President of Deltona (who was with them in the early days) as I have. In fact, if one reviews the original Master Plans and all the Deed Restrictions and original zoning, one would see much more density and development than is allowed today. And then let's talk about the STRP and what Deltona envisioned. At the time of their Bankruptcy, Deltona (Mackle Brothers) had applications in with the State to extend sewers to all the homes they had built and were going to build on Marco Island. Their vision was to have all the houses on Marco connected to sewers. In fact, it was part of their negotiation with the State prior to their permits being issued (Septic Tanks came about only due to Collier County allowing them in order to build up a tax base for the County by permitting homes). We also cannot forget about the rollback of density and the recent Marco Island Master Plan submitted to the State. In addition, Veteran's Park was scheduled to be a permitted high rise Hotel and 35,000 feet of Commercial space, all a part of the "vision" of the Mackle Brothers, per their zoning. Every time Mr. Sacher wants to talk about the Mackle Brothers vision for Marco Island, we can all ask him about what he wants to do with Tract K. After all, the Eagles will soon migrate to another location, as they always do.You just can't have it both ways, Larry.Ed Issler
