Referring to MICA’s letter dated by Dick Adams, president of MICA, the one thing that I noticed over the past 25 years of living full time on Marco Island is that MICA never mentions the five beach parking lots that Deltona Corp., wanted to install along Collier Boulevard and Seaview Court, back in 1976; pertaining to CO 76-20, that was supposed to avoid the beach parking problem that Marco Island has today, with the help of the county.
Or the beach pathways that were declared prescriptive easements by Collier County, that were fenced off by the condo beach association back in 1990; or beach access … gee, I wonder why?
Could it be, because MICA benefitted by blocking the beach parking lot so to create a monopoly; a captive audience on beach parking, to avoid competition from Collier County, and charge $135 for a parking pass? Last I heard, monopolies are illegal. Mr. Adams mentioned a long list of particular pieces of land, and donated land for specific uses. What about beach parking and beach access?
