In an attempt to be informed let me provide a brief historical perspective. I post these articles because they are related to parking, the Marriott and beach access, I begin with the widening of sidewalks:
Nov 24, 2003: This story is enlightening, pay attention to the comments of Mr. Dictor, general manager of the Marriott, speaking as a citizen with regard his dissent to the widening of the sidewalks on Collier, "We're not building any more hotels. We're at the saturation point"
August 10, 2006: Marriott/Madeira Condominium agree to beach access with no provision for restrooms or parking
March 27, 2007: LTE with an interesting proposal for beach parking from Sam and Pam Shniper of Marco Island for property owned by Marriott
July 1, 2010: "138,000 square-foot convention facility on the site of its current parking lot in an effort to become more competitive in attracting lucrative convention business"
July 15, 2010: the outcry from citizens to the proposal
September 27, 2012: An interesting LTE to remind candidates of the last council elections as to the issues.
There will be an incessant push for corporations to maximize the performance of assets, especially those on the beach. With this I still see vacant lots on Collier Blvd, but the Marriott will pursue to increase density on its parcel.
Is this in the interest of residents?
