Everglades proposed hotel!!

Post by Rich Andrews »

Now a developer wants to get even closer to the Everglades.They always maintained no development would ever go any closer then they currently are. With all the $$$$ going into restoration, how could they ever get a permit to build so close?

Years ago Bergeron Land Development was working on this site for it's development, then the permit issues shut the project down.But the bad side to this projectis that it will definately have an impact on Markham Park Target Range if it get put on that site. The residents will complain about the gun shot noise then the airboaters out in the Bombing Range frogging will be next. It will also effect everyone that uses the canal behind this site for skiing and jetskiing.This will be the onset of an airboat curfew in the Everglades if we don't watch what goes on at this site.

Why can't the state just take that land also like they did at Kissimmee, Picayune, and others. There is plenty of space right by the mall to build more if they want too. Hell, there are footers already poured for a hotel right across 136th from the arena. I believe it was going to be a Marriot.

Great just what I would want to see while being out in the bombing range... a high rise hotel would look great...I don't think so :evil: ...Its already bad that you can look to the south at towards 595 and see Weston and if you look to the east you can see the Panther arena...Now we gotta be stuck at looking at a high rise hotel and three office towers ! I say the only way we can stop it is to petition it now before they even start and get everyone who is involved with conservation..I see an airboat curfew coming into effect if they get this build going Because god forbid some snowbirds hear us airboating at night and we disturb there beauty sleep ! I can't believe the city of sunrise would even consider this...Next I see them starting a whole new city out in the middle of the glades if they keep this up...I dont understand why someone would have to build so close to the glades when they can just put it near the mall like " Muddyduck" was saying...This is insane...I say we do whatever we can to stop it now before it begins... I hope the city commissioners realize what sensitive land means and turn down the contract and leave it alone to be conserved...How many more Marriot hotels do we need in Broward County !!!

This looks like a good place to start. No direct email for the mayor and the commissioners.

To Mayor and City Commissoners:

I understand the building project at the end of Sunries Blvd. is being considered again. Please help protect what little natural area we have left near Sunrise. There is plenty of space to build that would not impact the everglades like this project. I find it unbelieveable that a project like this is being given any consideration while billions are being spent to restore the everglades. The restoration, ironically, is because of projects like this. I support conservation and public use of the areas around this site. I am also aware of the difficult financial situation that plagues our city as well as our country but a line has to be drawn. We have done enough damage to and caused eye sores aound Browards everglades borders. Do the right thing and stop this project and classify that land so that it cannot be developed.

Thank you for you consideration in this matter

This is a copy of the email I sent. For some reason my email spell check did not catch a few mistakes. Neither did I guess. I really hate to send an email like this with mistakes, guess I should be more awake when I do this kind of thing.

Hey, it shows them that it's NOT a form letter. And that sort of allows it to carry more weight in their eyes. Good letter.
