Dear Friends, Neighbors and Concerned Citizens,

The owner/developer, Florida Gulf Ventures is moving forward with their application for rezoning The Golf Club property to mixed use (commercial, retail & residential). Although I don't have the specific dates confirmed, it appears staff will have agenda backup material to the planning and zoning department 2 weeks prior to their meeting date of June 4 or July 2. Once it has gone to P & Z it will be brought before City Council at the second Large Tract Land Amendments Meeting on a date to be determined after council returns from hiatus July 14th. Possibly as early as July 15th. I will notify everyone of the exact dates and times of these meetings when I have confirmation. It is imperative that we attend in force. I'm sure the owners of the Golf Club think we have forgotten about them, but I can tell you from the emails and calls I receive every day it is not the case.

All petitions and opposition letters have been delivered to the City. I believe the number to be over 1000 signatures & letters. I have City stamped receipts, copied all and I will bring to both meetings.

Thank you all for being patient and respectful of the Mayor and Council and your continued commitment to save the golf course.
