Letter to the Editor: Parking in Paradise

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.

Excellent LTE!

In a quest to understand, what was the role of MICA in 1972? Was MICA the arbiter of code in 1972 similar to the role of a homeowners association (HOA) upon completion of a development, to which the city management functions today? Which begs the question today, what is the official legal role of MICA in regards to code enforcement. I know I paid a fee for plan reviews for new construction, but doesn't the city planning/building dept function in that same capacity?

Trust me, I am confused.

The MICA parking lot doesn't hold very many people. So where else should the rest of the Marco 90% park Mr. Ciolino?
