The Longboat Key Town Commission Monday postponed a decision, again, on extending the Colony Beach & Tennis Resort Association Dec. 31 deadline for re-opening the resort.
Instead, commissioners voted to continue the hearing this morning on the request until its Oct. 1 regular meeting, at which time they will review language for a new extension timeline that comes along with several requirements and conditions.
Knowing that a decision still looms in a future Tampa-based bankruptcy courtroom that will decide who has future control of the resort, the commission agreed to create a hybrid of two extension options provided by Town Manager Dave Bullock.
The myriad of conditions will be drawn up for commissioners to review on Oct. 1 and were agreed upon after commissioners realized they can’t control how quickly the resort gets up and running again and how long the litigation will continue.

- TheTown Commissioners of Longboat Key should they decide to continue the grandfathered use of the Colony Property should make their conditions of further use run with the land so that whoever eventuallly gets control will still have to conform to whatever conditions the Town imposes for the further grandfathering of use.
