I think also Mr. Issler was upset over swale parking in his neighborhood if I remember correctly.
Parking is not a small issue. Not all people who attend conventions use private transportation. Some people rent cars and they need a place to park be it on site off site or in Mr. Isslers swale. This is where the standoff lies.
I recently went to New York, it was 30.00 per day to park a car and that was discounted by staying at the hotel. Where would all the support vehicles park? They need offsite just for that.
Wmissow is right why should the people of Marco Island sell the place out for a mere tax break (if any). Why should the residents have to tolerate such nonsense. The Mariott is a very nice place and I am sure that the construction would be world class no doubt. It is the impact of the quality of life that it could have on the island which is the scary part.
Where is MICA on this? I believe it is far from a done deal.
Again, Mr. Issler you never answer questions that are asked of you ever notice that?
Would you sell your retirement home for the sake of growth and progress on Marco Island?
