- That tourism benefits the Florida economy is beyond argument. That it benefits Florida residential real estate also is beyond question. Likewise, that LBKC expansion/redevelopment will benefit -- not threaten -- residents and residential real estate on LBK is beyond question. Approve the plan.
- The vitality of Longboat Key is directly linked to the Longboat Key Club. Failure to permit the Club to update its facilities will result in the ultimate demise of Longboat Key's status as a premier community with attendant deterioration in its desirability as a primary or secondary residential area with attendant reductions in real estate values. With that, there goes the tax base and consequent beauty and safety of the community.
The Club is offering a major improvement in its golf course (which many of the expansion opponents say is poor) and in its other facilities.
To permit those improvements to be made, the Club must have some money to pay those costs. Is it so hard for the people who have developed enough wealth to afford homes on LBK to understand simple economics?
Come on, get your heads out of that lovely beach sand (or sand traps)!
Let's support what the Club is trying to do.
