presented at a neighborhood workshop by Rod Krebs and Don Neu this past January. It proposed to double the density of a hamlet project and to run sewer utilities out from the Bee Ridge Wastewater Treatment Plant to the development to enable the higher density.
Ayesh has formed a coalition to change the Comp Plan to disallow this intensification. Her group has scheduled a hearing for May 13 in Old Miakka and invites all who have concerns to either attend or to write to the County.
