Parking in Paradise
Referring to the article “Parking in Paradise” from June 11, the solution to this problem was solved back in 1972 when Herb Savage suggested to Deltona to install five beach parking lots along Collier Boulevard and Seaview Court. Deltona agreed and so county ordinance 76-20 was born.
MICA and the condo beach associations disagreed. They wanted to privitize a public beach for their own greed and by doing so, denied 90 percent of Marco Island’s population convenient beach parking and access.
The five beach parking lots were the solution back then and they are the solution today.
