Having read Mr. Kramer's commentary in the Marco Sun Times, I came away with the impression that Mr. Kramer is using the Marco Island Golf and Garden as a way to "gut" MICA and the deed restrictions they enforce.
Let's not kid ourselves; Mr. Kramer built the golf course to make money. And if he succeeds in undermining MICA and the deed restrictions what other checks and balances will the city have to maintain what has made Marco so great?Please don't say the City Council.
Mr. Kramer questions Marco's being governed by 50 year old deed restrictions. I'm sure many citizens will agree that they have worked pretty well: Marco is a paradise. Will getting rid of the deed restrictions make Marco Island better or will it be the Marco Island version of Pandora's Box?
Mr. Kramer has a dog in this fight. Deed restrictions haven't helped him with his golf course. Undermining the deed restrictions will be a benefit to him, and he is working to do just that.
I must say I do have a problem with people who look to exploit the system to make money for themselves at the expense of others. If Mr. Kramer succeeds, won't the island suffer without deed restrictions?
