Enjoy Great Company, Great Hors d’ oeures and cocktails
Come learn about the biggest potential desecration of the Collier County beachfront if the Army Corp of Engineers (ACE) has their way.
The gathering will be held Tuesday, August 3rd, from 5 pm to 7 pm at 60 Seagate Dr. Naples, FL 34103. Cost will be $25 and include wine, beer and appetizers.
On October 8th as the tentative approval date, their project will move forward unless the Collier County Board of Commissioners does an about-face on a vote they took April 27th to continue study on the entire beachfront of Naples and Collier County.
“October 8 is the date by which the Chief of the US ACE in Jacksonville Florida will forward approval for a $3 Billion+ (Recommended Plan) for the future Collier County Coastal Storm Management System to try to ameliorate storm surge, and global climate change, which runs on and off from Bonita Beach Road to the North, and to Port Royal to the South. Unless the Collier County Board of Commissioners votes to ‘unwind the watch they wound’ at their April 27, 2021, meeting, said Naples Cay resident Scott Schultz.
“At that time the five Collier County Commissioners voted 5-0 to continue initial tentative approval by the ACE to allow the ACE to further study of a potpourri of sea walls, monstrous concrete berms, sluice gates, etc., costing up to $1 billion from Collier County residents, and $50-70 million annually in maintenance costs, an unknow sum based due to an indemnification clause in the contract for a major desecration of the Collier County Coast line,” Schultz further stated.
“If you know nothing about this plan, here is your opportunity to learn about the costliest, and most controversial, public expenditure of Collier County tax dollars ever–to the tune of over $1 billion upfront by local taxpayers, and over $50-70 million annually for over 50-65 years, in tax increases for ALL Collier County taxpayers unless we can stop it” state Schultz.
RSVP for the $25 meeting to cover cost of food and beverage on behalf of the CCRCV PAC which is undertaking this informational meeting for local residents who likely have little to no knowledge of this incredibly incendiary plan that will impact all of us for decades.
