COUNCIL FOR PROGRESS AGENDA FOR ***LAST FRIDAY'S*** MEETING
COUNCIL FOR PROGRESS FOUNDATION, INC.
What: March Meeting
The Golf Club Property
Hampton Inn in Downtown Cape Coral
619 SE 47th Terrace
When: FRIDAY, 14, 2014
At last Monday’s (March 3rd) City Council meeting I made an offer to the Council to see if the CFP would be willing to entertain looking at a private/public partnership to see if the Golf Club property could be successfully redeveloped with the inclusion of an 18 hole golf course. The Council voted unanimously to allow us time to consider our involvement in the project.
At our meeting this Friday we will be presented with possible development scenarios, possible partners, and possible funding sources. Council Member Birch, Dana Brunett, City EDO Director and Joe Mazurkiewicz, CFP Executive Director will lead the discussion with input from other informed members and community stakeholders. Once all the possibilities are laid out the CFP members will vote to assist the city in saving this very unique parcel and making it the center piece of Southeast Cape Coral. Please join us for this very important discussion.
I believe this is a high risk, high reward proposition. If we were to get involved and be successful it will give the CFP an immense amount of credibility.
We will also have our monthly update on EDO activity from Dana Brunett.
Networking is from 7:00-7:30 and the meeting will begin promptly at 7:30am.
