Delay sought in Clam Bay vote

— Two sides in a dispute over navigation in Clam Bay are asking Collier County commissioners to delay a vote next Tuesday and give them more time to resolve their differences.

Commissioner Frank Halas has joined the Pelican Bay and Seagate neighborhoods in asking for the delay until June 23. Commissioners routinely honor such requests.

The Pelican Bay Foundation, a master association for that community, sent a proposal to Seagate earlier this week to support dredging to keep Clam Bay at its current depth in exchange for Seagate accepting a scaled-back version of a plan to post navigational aides between that neighborhood and Clam Pass.

On Friday, Seagate Property Owners Association President Ernest Wu called the proposal "pretty strongly worded in their (Pelican Bay's favor."

"We're going to work hard to try to work something out," Wu said.

Commissioners voted 3-2 last month to delay a vote on a marker plan that was widely expected to draw a lawsuit from the Pelican Bay Foundation.
