Lost Lagoon plan for Murdock Village gets six-month extension
Anna Day ENOUGH hotels ... bars and restaurants. We need things for residents.
Jonathan Lennox This project is planned as a major Entertainment and commercial zone. An amphitheater for concerts is part of the plan.
Jonathan Lennox The water park, commercial and entertainment district are on a phased purchase schedule. Ground breaking wasn’t going to happen till at least late 2020 or early 2021. With the other half of the land having 2,500 homes about to go into production and with the growth of North Port. The developer will more than likely continue with the project. Allowing the residential growth to happen first is a smart play.
Can Punta Gorda be more ‘age-friendly’?
Lydia Carloni A REAL bus line connecting to Lee and Sarasota counties makes so much sense and I cannot figure out why Charlotte wont pass it. From older folks getting to docs and testing, younger folks getting too and from work, it’s a win-win. Less traffic on the roads, less pollution, less accidents as the aging population would have more choices. How about age-friendly as in something for the younger folks? How about economically friendly, where a person can actually afford to live here? Right now, attracting more isn’t what we need, we need to fix what we have.
Kate Gunster Punta Gorda is age-friendly.
