AS NBC2'S LAURA ROBERTS REPORTS, LEADERS MADE DECISIONS BUT THE ISSUE IS FAR FROM RESOLVED. Return to index of stories...


FMB TOWN COUNCIL-PKG


Gayle Manor has been soaking in the view from her Fort Myers

Beach home for 25 years -

but ever since this wall went up last spring, that view is very different.

Gayle Manor

Fort Myers Beach

42:47 42:53

Its like in my face whenever I sit out here, that is what I'm looking at

It's one of several elevated pool structures causing controversy

on Fort Myers Beach.

Residents have been arguing for months -the pool walls are built

too close to the canal, according to the town's land development code.

Gayle Manor

42:39 42:42

if the wall would come down, no problem

Leading up to tonight's council meeting, the town had put

construction of these pools on hold -

causing developer Joe Orlandini to file a lawsuit, saying it's

hurting his business.

Joe Orlandini

Real Estate Developer

42:11 42:15

they've essentially put me into a stand still on being able to move forward

Tonight, the council's decisions could mean those projects will never

move forward.

They reversed their decision to grant permits on five of his properties -

and put a stop work order on the property across from Gayle Manor's home.

While they lifted the moratorium Orlandini was fighting, they

likely opened the door for future lawsuits.

Orlandini

44:20 44:26

they can change it after, but they cant change it while i'm in the process

As for the future of these pools, council tabled discussion on

that for three months -

ensuring - lawsuit or not - this issue dividing the beach is far

from over.

FORECAST-WXWALL


THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE NBC2 WEATHER STAFF.

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS THE FORECAST FOR OUR AREA.

SUNSHINE RETURNS TOMORROW

Quiet weather will be back again on Wednesday. For the rest of the evening our skies stay clear and our temperatures drop back to the mid and upper 50's. No rain is on the radar and non anticipated tonight.

Mostly sunny weather is on the way again tomorrow with daytime highs in the lower 80's and slightly cooler weather right at the beaches during the day. No rain forecast again tomorrow. By Thursday and Friday our humidity will start to creep back up and a few fair-weather clouds will develop in the afternoon.

In the long-range outlook we will be tracking an approaching cold front over the weekend. The front is forecast to move over the Florida peninsula and hang out for a few days. That would argue for a few showers to post in the forecast late Saturday, Sunday and Monday. At this point it still does not look like a very wet pattern is setting up for the weekend ahead. but plan on a few showers anyway.
