Bay Harbour Hearing


Once again the developers of Bay Harbour Marina Village on Main St. have petitioned the county to accept yet another proposal that does not seem to fix the citizens of San Carlos Island’s concerns. A hearing was held on May 11th that Islander’s attended but the bottom floor elevators were locked that initially limited ADA access (eventually opened) and the microphone system was off so the discussion was very hard to hear.

Also it seemed that the Lee County Attorneys office stated that they supported the settlement agreement before the public or the Special Magistrate had a chance to read it. The developers plans have been denied twice already and their new plans do not address the primary concerns of the Island residents. I.E., building height, population density, traffic impacts, water run off into Hurricane Bay just to name a few.

I urge the community not support inappropriate development on the Island.
