The Longboat Key Club & Resort has agreed not to touch the guardhouse on Longboat Club Road as part of its $400 million renovation plan for Islandside.
But the road is still a point of contention.
The club dropped plans for the guardhouse after The Longboat Key Association, which owns and maintains the road, refused to sign off on the Islandside application.
But at a pre-application meeting between town staff and club officials held last month, Town Attorney David Persson questioned whether the club has the right to make minor changes to the road, including curb cuts and minor sidewalk modifications.
