Boy, talk about being mis-quoted. It should be more like the accuser being misinformed. None of what WMissow has stated above is correct. None of it. Oh, except for the fact that our neighborhood banded together when the MIA was considering placing what is now on Sam Marco on a portion of the Church across from Veteran's Park. Yes, we hired a lawyer and found the Deed Restrictions and spoke to Deltona and MICA and got that idea halted. And good for us !!!
The issue here is that the Marriott can do whatever is permitted on their property (or Mass Mutual's property) as long as it meets zoning and Deed Restrictions. The Marriott is the largest supporter of charities, is thre main reason MIA exists today, and has done nothing but good for the Island and its' citizens since its' existence.The only item holding the Marriott back from doing what they desire is PARKING !! The new Convention Center, new Rooms, new restaurant and whatever else is planned is all within zoning regulations. And there are many avenues available to the Marriott to overcome the parking limitation.The City has another Hotel planned for the Marco Town Center area and I would think you all would be much more upset and against that concept than this one.Let's not complain just for the sake of complaining. Let's move on to something more relevant. By the way, Frank Recker lost by 144 votes. We have 2 (two) term limits for Council. That is why we have rotation, not because of any particular ideology. I guarantee that Bill Trotter would have won if he had been allowed to run again, as an example.Ed Issler
