  • Byron Linder, 2150 SW 16 Court, asked where the wall will be placed and whether he will still have access to his garage via the alleyway.

  • Franklin Bryant, 1830 SW 22 Avenue stated he is not against this project, but voiced concern about the 75’ building behind the homes. He also wanted to ensure the staff conditions will be met.

  • Mike Resta, 2040 SW 22 Avenue, thanked Mr. Brewton, Ms. Parker, and the Planning and Zoning Department for their work on this project. He voiced concern about the 20’ easement which has never been officially recognized by the City. He stated that the marina has used this roadway for years. Mr. Resta requested that all marina activities be limited to the marina property and that homeowners be given full use of this road. He also voiced concern about activities and operating hours at the proposed clubhouse and whether they will affect homeowners. Mr. Resta stated that the neighbors are adamant that they do not want any marine activity on the easement.

  • Mr. Nelson stated the easement will be abandoned and the marina will discontinue using it. Chair Curtis asked Mr. Brewton how this will be accomplished. Mr. Nelson pointed out the easement is private and not public. He stressed that the applicant will release the easement to any property owner who requests it.

  • Mr. Ruff stated the asphalt will be removed and the ground will be sodded.

With regard to the privacy concerns, Mr. Madfis said a 3-story, 55-ft clubhouse is proposed. He stated that windows can be made opaque and landscaping can be added to screen the view of neighbors’ homes.

With regard to operating hours, Mr. Madfis added that boat entries are permitted from dawn to dusk. Additionally, he stated that this is a boat storage facility and not a site where wild parties are held. Mr. Madfis once again summarized measures taken to achieve neighborhood compatibility.

  • Ms. Freeman asked how access to Mr. Linder’s garage is being addressed. Mr. Madfis stated he was advised by the City that usage of the alleyway to enter private garages is illegal and must be closed. He commented that abandonment of the easement would restrict residents’ use of this alleyway. Mr. Madfis stated the applicant is willing to sit with the residents to further address this issue.
