I am wondering why the Manatee County commission has not required the developers of that property on the corner of 75th street and 53rd Avenue (Long Bar Pointe?) to set aside enough land to extend 53rd Avenue to the intercoastal and a future bridge to the Longboat Pass area.
That is county land on the beach side so Anna Marie Island locals cannot complain as they always do.
We must have another bridge for the future growth of that area. Now is the time for getting that right away.
Oh, by the way, the sea grass and all will come back after the bridge is built as it did near the other two.
