TONIGHT ONE CAPE CORAL RESIDENT IS PLANNING TO MOVE --

ANOTHER WANTS TO SELL HIS BOAT --

AFTER CITY COUNCIL DENIED THEIR APPEALS TO BUILD A SECOND BOAT CANOPY ON THEIR PROPERTY.

NBC2'S LAURA ROBERTS EXPLAINS THE CANOPY CONTROVERSY IS FAR FROM OVER Return to index of stories...


CAPE BOAT COVERS-BNR-PKG


They moved to Cape Coral because they heard it's a boat friendly community -

but tonight Steve Hooton and his wife say the city is anything but.

Steve Hooton

Cape Coral

36:12 36:15

I'll be leaving Cape Coral and taking my money with me

Cape Coral City Council denied his appeal to build a second boat canopy on his property.

He already has one canopy, but owns two boats.

Hooton

36:29 36:32

The sun will rot the boat without a doubt

Council denied Jim Limbright's appeal too -

he also wanted to build a second boat canopy -

One that is bigger than the code allows.

Jim Limbright

Cape Coral

13:55 14:02

It would blend in it would be out I sight anyway. its just a big bunch of hoopla for nothing

The ordinance allows just one canopy on residential lots -

but says the city can approve a second--

as long as it isn't "contrary to the public interest."

Neighbors of both lots told council that's exactly what a second canopy would be.

Teri Forte

Cape Coral

11:01 11:07

They have one canopy and I think that's plenty. I don't want my property value to go down or to mess up my view

These cases are just two of many city leaders have heard and will hear in the coming months-

Which is why they decided tonight this ordinance may need to be changed.

Any changes will be brought to a public hearing -

to finally put the canopy controversy to rest.

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.

"Increasing rain prospects""

Once the clouds thinned out, it turned out to be a beautiful end to our Mother's Day weekend. It was also a hot one, as temperatures topped out in the lower to middle 90s area wide. We're looking at a couple of more days in the 90s, before some rain moves in and as a result cools temperatures off a bit.

Through the late afternoon hours expect partly sunny skies along with a bit of a breeze out of the east. As winds pick up between 10-15mph, this will keep the sea breeze pinned very close to the coastline. As a result, daytime temperatures have climbed into the lower half of the 90s. Rain chances will stay very minimal through rest of the day, with a 20% chance at best along our beaches and coastal areas.

This evening, one or two showers may linger along the coast with the vast majority of the area staying dry through the night time hours. Expect a few passing clouds from time to time with temperatures settling into the lower 70s by morning.

With plenty of heat and humidity in place for Tuesday, a couple of showers and storms may bubble up during the heat of the day. A batch of tropical moisture will move in from the east and southeast bringing scattered scattered showers and storms back to the area by Wednesday and Thursday. A few downpours will linger through Friday, before sunnier and less humid weather takes over by the weekend. Return to index of stories...
