It may be useful to take a broader look at the entirety of the Pelican Landing community … let’s extend our curiosity beyond the Tennis Center management issues to see what else may be of concern to residents. While Pelican Landing is generally a wonderful community, there are issues of concern that lurk beneath that lovely surface …
For example, consider the beach and the possibility of what we face there. While the issue of the “initial” expense is important, most residents are completely in the dark regarding the basic details of the proposed renourishment and the associated long-term liabilities.
- Did you know that everything we build/renourish beyond approximately where today’s high-water mark is will be a Public Beach?
- and that our accretion rights will be lost forever if we move forward?
- Did you know that, should this project move forward, the State of Florida will hold PLCA (aka you) responsible for any adverse conditions the proposed cement structures may cause to lands north or south of our “public” beach?
- If this project moves forward, the beach we create will be public land yet PLCA will be responsible to monitor and maintain a public beach!
This could prove to be a miserable long-term debacle with liability issues the current board has thus far seemed either unwilling to evaluate or unable to consider in any reasonably objective fashion.
The bulb must be turned on to shed light on any number of circumstances throughout PL – the beach is one gigantic issue that requires full disclosure. Perhaps this would get the attention of the general population as these combined issues are (or will be) costly.
Until the PLCA makes a commitment to transparency and accountability the residents of Pelican Landing will continue to be kept in the dark. Your PLCA Board of Directors has the ability to obligate you and every property owner to be held responsible for decisions they make – some in perpetuity – the beach renourishment is one example.
Should one look casually at the big picture, on the surface Pelican Landing looks good. If you delve into the details the picture is murky.
