Carol, I think you have Marco's priorities mixed up. You seem to focus on satisfying businesses & visitors, & understandably so since you were involved in three businesses.
Since the number of Marco's taxpaying residents, seasonal or year round, far outnumber it's businesses, whether you like it or not, Marco is primarily a residential community. The residents do not exist primarily to support businesses or to be obligated to visitors. We paid the price of admission & came here because we liked the way Marco is, not because we expected it to be a thriving resort community with all the associated problems of traffic, crime, drugs, etc. I don't think these will raise property values.
Let's let Marco evolve at it's own pace as it has in the past reflecting the desires of it's residents. And if there is room for more business & visitors, they will come.
For those who wish to live in a thriving resort community as Ms. Gore expressed, there are un-cloistered communities such as Ft. Myers Beach which would welcome them.
