FORT MYERS BEACH, Fla.- Plans are moving forward to transform San Carlos Island into a resort style destination. In order to do that, the developer would have to tear down two RV parks-Ebb Tide and Oyster Bay.
The multi-million dollar development, in the Main Street area of Fort Myers Beach, would include 300 condos, 450 hotel rooms, a marina, shop and restaurants. On top of that, it would create hundreds of jobs.
The project has divided the community. Many have traffic and environmental concerns.
Janet Hladick said, "A 450-room hotel will bring traffic with guests, workers, and supply trucks. "
Supporters said they would rather have this development in their backyard versus an industrialized project. If the project gets the thumbs up, construction would start in two years.
