Old Golf course

January 12, 2018

To the editor: I am extremely energized to write to the people of Southwest Florida to save the Cape Coral Golf Course. The other night I heard the coyote pup barking and singing....

20/20 land has many restrictive usage caveats. Be careful for what you wish for. Not to mention the tax loss for the city.

James71 posted the TRUTH. QUOTE " the reason the Golf Course went belly up was the failure of abutting neighbors did not support it. Had they been members It might be still operating. Instead they wanted the beauty of a functioning course FREE." -- As the old express goes "If it's FREE, it's for me!"

One look at a google earth overview of this area tell's the story. If you think this area of Cape Coral needs or should have more single family residential development I question your mental state. Houses are already crammed in the surrounding areas. In addition, if you look at the people supporting residential development they are usually Real Estate Agents...surprise surprise

The entire tax base of Cape Coral has thus far paid 110 million dollars to assemble property called Festival Park way up in the north Cape off Wilmington Rd, there are still 100 properties to purchase to complete the assemblage. Not a bit of infrastructure or a commercial area any where near. I think the entire tax base can afford to pay for the old golf course property. All people have access to Festival Park as all should have access to Cape Coral Central Park.

Exactly why is it the abutting property owners should pay the tab??? Has not worked that way for Festival Park. Why should some pay for all to use???

Sorry Carl, but the wildlife you speak of are not a practical part of saving this parkland. There must be some part of the property that holds recreational value for all citizens. I do support the taxing of cyclists now to help pay for all the bike lane costs being absorbed by the vast majority who don't ride.

The question remains: What if the city can NOT secure funding through the 20/20 funds???? We are talking about a huge chunk of change that will be required for the purchase, as well as the maintenance & insurance. A park would be nice, but at what cost?? Without the 20/20 funding, tax payers will be on the hook for everything.

Such a pretty letter. If you are so driven why don't YOU create an HOA with the surrounding home owners and buy the land. We in the outreaches of the city see plenty of parks in the SE. HOA buyouts have worked well in Royal Tee and Burnt Store Marina. But leave the majority of taxpayers alone
