Sample Letter to email Our Commissioners: ( click on addresses below)
I am a resident/homeowner on Manasota Key. I urge the Commissioners to expand the boundaries of the Integrated Shorelines Management MSTU beyond West County to include all of Charlotte County. The beaches, both public and private, on Manasota Key are a prime economic contributor and asset to Charlotte County. Our beaches are the reason people come to visit, play and live here.
Even the City of Punta Gorda advertises Englewood Beach as a prime tourist attraction. The South Gulf Cove Homeowners Association, Cape Haze Homeowners Association, Rotonda Homeowners Association and the South Manasota Sandpiper Key Association all support the idea of a tiered tax structure with those directly on the beach paying the most and so on down the line. I believe this is the most equitable approach. It addresses the fact that the beaches of Manasota Key are vital to the lifestyle we enjoy here in Charlotte County.
