Klaus, Are you to tell me that you are a "Resident" since 1971 which would be the start of the island? If so, how can you say that "Vision" is flawed.
ed34115 I think sir you may be wrong. Deltona in my opinion were far advanced of their time. If you look at the Master Deeds that MICA have they have many Density Restrictions something that was not even heard of in 1969 when they started.
The problem is many want to kick the small guy with his 1969 Deltona home off the island and replace him with a modern more higher Tax Valued home.
The recession stopped that plan for a short time but I see it ramping up again.
I do not know how long you have been on the island but I think the Mackle Bros. "vision" was for normal people to have a place to retire in paradise not a "Tourist Trap" loaded with fast food and T-shirt stands waiting for spring break to occur. That is why I would choose that vision.
As far as development it was the Army Corp. of Engineers who stopped the Dredging permits that was to occur at the Isles of Capri that doomed Deltona. Would you have not wanted to see Marco Island duplicated at the Isles of Capri? I would not have a problem with that. More nice Deltona Homes, more beech created.
If Deltona was so mistaken why did they have the "values" as a company to create and adopt the Deed Restrictions in the first place? It was their island they could have full built it out right from the beginning. I see Deltona houses on large lots, corners, not just jammed in. I think you need to rethink your position.
