I just finished reading the article regarding swale parking. I am concerned with several issues.
The Island community did not buy Veterans Park to provide beach parking or for any other specific business parking. Marco Island was designed to be a residential community. We do not need to attract more people to the Island for business or to use the beaches.
I had conversation with a few councilmen and wannabes prior to the last election and told them that the proposed beach access next to the Marriott would cause nearby parking issues and was told that wouldn’t be a problem since the access was for walking neighbors and that the Police Department would take care of any problems and we all know how that turned out.
There aren’t any sanitary facilities at the Marriott access point and beachgoers either use the water or trespass on private property .
It appears with minature golf on its way, we are on our way to becoming another Fort Myers Beach.
