If that is the case, then I admit to jumping the gun on your comment and I apologize.

lawmajor, what are you talking about? Unless you are the one that wrote the letter, my post wasn't directed at you. It was aimed at this bozo that wants to mandate what others can or can't have depending on what he thinks looks good.

ERoberts - Many residents I've spoken with believe that, prior to the March 19th vote on the extended bar hours, another valid question needs, and should to be answered by current council. "Are there any current councilmembers or their families, whom have accepted FREE and/or DISCOUNTED drinks at The Dixie Roadhouse? Pretty simple question, don't you agree?

As a taxpayer, it is not only my business, but also the business of all taxpayers of CC. Do you have a problem with "Transparancy"? If there is nothing to hide, then what's the problem? Just this past week alone, I have overheard individuals referring to our city as "Cape Corrupt". Forbes Magazine could change our statue in a heartbeat. Our ratings were based on our low cost of living and more importantly, low crime.

Suggestion: Read this weeks article in the Editorials regarding our Sunshine Laws. -- QUOTE: "The right to see documents that tell you who is giving money to the candidates seeking your vote." -- The question I believe needs to be answered is: "How many of our seated council members have accepted donations from any of these 2 bars or in one case, (being they are a LLC) their affiliates? Another question: How many of our seated council members are person friends with 1 or more the owners of these establishments or their affiliates? Our elected official ran on "Transparency", so to clear up any of the rumors that are circulating, I feel they should publicly be requested to answer these 2 legitimate questions, prior to casting their votes on March 19th. Then it should be up to the citizens to decide if any members of council should recluse themselves from this vote. How many of the 8 will be up to this challenge????

Another example is our NEVER ending Extended Bar hours charade. Twice voted down, DUI's drastically up in the Cape. Council's prime focus should be our safety. With all the numerous projects in the works, we have a council member who's MAIN PRIORITY is to extend the bar hours (for the sake of 2 or 3 bars) beginning April 1st. CC Police reported there were 12 accidents in an 11 day span in the construction area in the downtown Cape. This suggests that the timing could NOT be worse to extend bar hours to 3am. Do you really believe that people are going to be any better at maneuvering through this area with a few drinks in them? This project is scheduled to last 1 year, with construction barriers constantly being moved & relocated. Does this sound to you like a city that cares about it's citizens safety???

One more thing I failed to mention was, that once vacant lot which is now home to this apartment complex, was originally zoned as single family and/or duplex's. Suggest you take a drive over there and see it for yourself. They advertise it as "Luxury Living" but appear to be having problems filling the place. Still several vacancies and they have been renting since July of 2017. Could if be the fact that there is nothing within walking distance? Not a store within a 2 miles radius to purchase milk or bread, no public transportation and not a gas station around. With Cape Coral only 45% built out, there was a million places where this apartment complex could have been better suited. Go figure why this City somehow thought that this would be the perfect spot for an apartment complex. Unfortunately, our City government does NOT look out for the best interests of it's people!

"investigated the Cape & other nearby locations before making a decision where to live. What attracts us to Cape Coral is the appeal of waterside canal living, fresh or salt water, & the uniformity + style" -- Scott, like many of us before you, we all thought the same & believed that we had thoroughly done our due diligence, only to be back slapped by our city government. They approve zoning law changes to accommodate builders without taking into consideration the fact that they are depreciating property values of the homeowners. This is the normal here in Cape Coral. I have friends residing off of Veterans and SW 17th Place. That area was all single family homes, not even a duplex around there. That was until last year when the city allowed for an apartment complex to be dumped in the center of all single family homes. A total of four, 3 story buildings were erectly facing all single family homes. Really did wonders for their property values!
