I also feel that there are plenty of places for our wonderful Veterans to meet on the Island. The gathering place that has been made so beautiful at Veterans Park should be preserved as it currently is. It seems like Marco Island wants to build something on every last piece of land on the Island. We now see these huge, right up to the lot line, homes being built. The quaintness of Marco has come and gone. However, why do we have to build a building on the spot where the community can gather.
