Once again, a perimeter golf course that is shorter, senior friendly, kid friendly, could be a council pre-approved plan for developers who want their PDP approval. This preserves and doubles green strip frontage. A residential amenity for 8 floor condos built on the inside acres. Higher value real estate makes increased tax revenue. win win.

As stated "three caveats: The numbers must work, the funding plan must make good fiscal sense and, key, that the city also commit to a development plan for the site that will benefit all of the taxpayers who are paying for it, not just those who would like it to stay lean and green.

Otherwise, what the taxpayers of Cape Coral are likely to cull from purchase of the old course are more pie-in-the-sky initiatives like the Academic Village and Festival Park, great ideas just waiting - and waiting- on interested partners and lots more money.

If purchase is the way Council opts to go, commitment to not only a buy but to a detailed parks develop plan that will benefit all of the city's residents must - must - be a given."

In my opinion, the purchase of this property will be a FINANCIAL DISASTER as well as AN INCREASE IN TAXES of many, many, years to come.
