To the City Council of Marco Island: I can’t believe the news I heard of the horse drawn carriage rides business being denied approval by your Council.
What a shame that the council and residents of Marco Island could not see the many benefits this business would have brought to your community. I was looking forward to my next visit and the chance to see the operation for myself and my family.
I also told many friends who also visit your area about the carriage rides and all had positive remarks. Even those who do not stay on Marco were going to venture your way, since there would be something new to experience. I guess now they will go elsewhere. I have seen this same type of business work well in many cities, what a shame it was voted down due to the fears of those uncomfortable with change and growth.
You would have a hard time finding four business owners who are more dedicated to running a top notch business, but that is your loss Marco. Hopefully those who were against the business will take the time to learn the positive aspects of the carriage rides and maybe reconsider before another community welcomes them, if it is not to late.
From a disappointed Marco Island visitor.
