To Manatee County commissioners and government: I am writing this letter in opposition to Long Bar Pointe.
We have an excellent comprehensive plan. I do not believe you should even consider these changes.
The developers are trying to make you believe the changes are for this project only and would not affect other developments. This is not true and appears shady. You should disqualify them for trying to allow text amendments which weaken the comprehensive plan and allow more developers to do the same.
This property already underwent changes in 2008 and I do not feel there should be any further density approved.
The storm surge and FEMA hazard during hurricanes should be a real worry to your governing body.
Please vote against this totally wrong addition to Manatee County.
