NAPLES, Fla.- It's your money and the city of Naples will spend $3 million to buy nearly seven acres of land along the Gordon River near downtown.

The city will also pay an additional $2.5 million for the design and construction of that space. That money will come from the general fund.  Council members want to make sure the land is used as an open green space instead of a parking garage.
