Team petitions to stop ‘overdevelopment’ of Naples Seaside Resort residence

A tiny group of city people hopes to make large waves when it will come to the redevelopment of the Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club.

The group is circulating a petition to avert what it describes as “overdevelopment” on the historic house, which include the land that now supports the hotel’s championship golfing study course — and quaint, but cherished tennis middle.

The energy started out out as an try by some of its common players a several months in the past to help save the tennis center, but it grew from there.

The mission now? To “preserve the full open room into perpetuity” as a situation for redevelopment by The Athens Group — if possible ahead of the property changes arms.

The petition arrives late in the match, as the developer has now secured town approval for its new development, together with a new five-star vacation resort and condos on the two sides of Gulf Shore Boulevard North.
