FACT OF THE DAY
FACT: It was the RBC that won the first round against WCI and its plans to build 4 hi-rise towers on the Raptor Bay Golf Course last February. Because of funds raised from hundreds of Pelican Landing homeowners, Residents for a Better Community was able to hire a land-use attorney and professional land planner and fight WCI’s plans before the Bonita Springs City Council.
Now the second round is coming. WCI is again seeking the council’s approval, and they want to annex these new hi-rises with 400 units (that means about 800 or more residents plus guests plus grandchildren in season) into Pelican Landing, over burdening our Beach Park, PLCA’s beach shuttle boats, tennis and pickleball courts and our other amenities.
FACT: The current PLCA board has taken no official position on this issue. They have not stood up to WCI on this, or on WCI’s demand that we lease, not own, the Pelican Landing trademark after turnover.
We need a board of directors that will defend our property rights.
