The Manatee County Planning Commission meeting regarding Peninsula Bay on July 14 did not allow sanity to prevail. Cortez Road is already congested, so it doesn’t need more traffic.
The effects of the decision are not short term; they will affect all future generations.
Hopefully, there is time to rethink the situation, and reality can check in when the Manatee County Commission meets Sept. 1.
