To the Editor:
In March, the Boca Grande Historic Preservation Board did not approve a proposed 4,316-square-foot house for 851 Palm Ave., where the average house size is 2,708 square feet. As an architect with substantial experience in historic preservation, I stated how this house did not meet the Lee County adopted design guidelines for the Boca Grande Historic District.
The Dog Show on March 23rd went well. I want to thank the people for coming out and enjoying their wonderful dogs!
On the front page of the March 15th issue of the Beacon, you published a photo of one of our young men and ran a piece about how he was in police custody. Meanwhile on page five of this same issue, in the section that remembers our island’s past, the first entry is about the same young man’s father who passed away five years ago, photo included.
We would like to thank all of the people who made Saturday, March 16 such a wonderful and prosperous day for the Johann Fust Community Library Book Sale.
To the Editor:Subject: Gilchrist
The Boca Grande Historical Preservation Board at the March 13 meeting stated it was responsible for correcting the Gilchrist parking problem. That said, now we have a board in place to listen to, to digest ideas, and to eventually correct the problem.
