Close to 150 residents attended the Margate Planning Board meeting of June 25.
Once particular topic that caused much concern… again… was talk of high-rises.
Margate Zoning Chief, Roger McLarnon: We want to revisit the master plan in regard to the hotel overlay. This will happen at a future meeting; proposed zoning changes and building heights.
Original plan was to have a 220 ft hotel/condo featuring transient use on the site of Ventura’s Greenhouse.
McLarnon feeling guilty. ‘We’re not trying to hide anything.‘
Neighboring Island House concerned about changes to permitted building heights in Margate.
More shameful behavior from Margate’s Planning Board.
Neighbors who want to protect historic Lucy the Elephant, were laughed at by the Margate Planning Board. Chairman Rich Patterson did nothing to stop it. No apologies either.
Margate Planning Board: ‘Hey Rich, think we’ll propose taking 8 floors off the Island House to stop those winds? Hahahaha, Good idea. That’s was a good one. So funny.’
Margate’s Mayor Becker plays a major role in selecting Planning Board members. So many bad choices. Embarrassing.Margate Concerned Citizens Group.
Next Margate City Commissioner meeting is July 2.
