I am in favor of Long Bar Pointe because it will allow public access to our precious waterfront. I've lived in the area for the past 31 years and watched many waterfront tiki bars and open views of the water vanish as they get cut off by private development that is not willing to share the waterfront amenity with the general public.
I've been a boater and recreational fisherman for the past 20 years, so I value maintaining the quality of water and fisheries. I also know there are many requirements by numerous agencies whose very capable staff will diligently enforce those requirements.
That makes me comfortable that our precious resource will be protected if Long Bar Pointe is allowed to carry out their plan which allows public access to the waterfront.
