Mr. Issler again you confuse me. I read your responses which are always pro leadership. Has there ever been a time when you stand back and think that what other people say and write may just have some basis to it? Or do as you always do and just say the majority will prevail.
The biggest problem with Marco Island voters is the system does not allow the "Part Time" resident to vote. Therefore the "majority" as you call it are a very small group of "full time" residents who believe make up the opinion of the island.
The island is divided that is clear. It will get worse before it gets better. I see that you are aligned with the group and mindset that bigger is better. Not always the case. Big homes, large commercial districts, development makes you feel good as you believe your asset of the home increases in value. False belief.
Quality of life on Marco Island is the single biggest concern facing all "owners" of property going forward as of today. The impact of the recession has brought different buying trends to the island. This island was always intended for "retired living" period. That itself is will change status. The "Mackel Bros Plan will soon be over".
With this change will bring more and more development with large homes and large costs. The small "Deltona" homes will be purchased and demolished making way for the "redevelopment" of the new phase of Marco Island.
The problem Mr. Issler is this. The team you are so rah,rah, for may one day see you as not as same stature as they are. Your home may not be big enough or meeting the criteria of the "new island look". What then Mr. Issler? Will you then get out of the way of development???
I see it this way. I love my Deltona Home. If a new Million dollar home is built next door to mine it does not hurt me at all. In fact the million dollar home is DECREASED in value due to my Deltona home. Do you think someone is going to spend a million dollars to live next to my Deltona 1969 paid for home???? My cheap living, cheap cooling, low water use home that they have spent a million bucks on? My SOH Homesteaded tax home while they pay to the moon tax on the million dollar home? This will be the divide that will take a very long time to change on this island. So keep it up Mr. Issler you just make my future brighter with your groups plan.
People with small self esteem need large homes. People with big ego's need big big homes. I for one need neither. I need the Beech, peace and quiet, security and serenity and a place to polish my hot rod and I am happy. So I say build it happy to be your neighbor.
