Herb: The Master Plan for Marco Island, designed by the Mackle Brothers, is MUCH more development oriented than what our Island is today. Veterans Park was destined to be Hotel and Commercial, IAW the Master Plan, but thank Glenn we have a Park. As you drive Collier Blvd. you will see parcels of vacant land that would have high rise condos and/or hotels if not for the economic turndown. These lots will most likely have those high rises one day, thanks to the Mackle Brothers. They did a GREAT job creating Marco island. But let's not kid ourselves just for the sake of a golf course or parking garage. Somebody should do an analysis of the expected tax revenue, both City and County, if the Marriott is permitted their request. I would rather them pay it than me.Ed Issler
