Do Not Give Away Public Waterfront Property to Wrecker Cay Developers
This petition made change with 1,201 supporters!
The county is about to give Wreckers Cay Developers waterfront property which the public owns, on Laurel Ave, in Stock Island.
This strip of land is on the water and gives access to the public for multiple purposes such as: kayaks, dinghies, live aboard persons, swimming. Benches could be placed on the “spit” and the public could enjoy sunrise, or a cool breeze during hot summer nights. But if the county commissioners give it away, the public will loose this public waterfront property.
Wreckers Cay has already received many “favours” such as:
Wreckers Cay was allowed to sell the 80 existing Rogos on the property (from the 100 families they evicted), at market rate to make a profit and also to make another hotel in Stock Island.
The county will then give (FOR FREE!) 279 Rogos to Wreckers Cay so they can build their development.
The give away of Rogos will deplete almost all the Rogos the county has and leave for the county 10 Rogos.
The number of Parking space requirements has been lowered so more units can be built for this development, thus creating parking problems for the neighbourhood.
To rent these “affordable” apartments, will be very expensive as most people in the Keys make under $15 an hour and cannot afford their rents. So the majority of workers in the Keys would not be able to afford to rent these units.
Wreckers Cay does not need this public waterfront property to build their massive development, so why take the waterfront property away from the public?
WE WANT THE PUBLIC TO KEEP THIS WATERFRONT PROPERTY!
Please sign our petition NOW if you want the public to keep this waterfront property for our own use.
