Traditional Hotel District

- We the residents of District 4 support the Traditional Hotel District.  We believe all of these small inns are a vital part of the eclectic fabric of Pass-a-Grille 

- We believe in the rights of the owners to protect the future of their business and it's ability to thrive while respecting their neighbors.

- We support the strict redevelopment requirements (setbacks, size, height etc.) of the THD which guarantees responsible renovation or redevelopment of the inns as needed. This ensures that it remains in scale with the surrounding properties.

 -We understand that the 12th Avenue portion of the Coconut Inn property included a parking lot, patio area and shuffleboard court for decades when it was the LeRoy Motel. We support Coconut Inn's rezoning request so that they may complete their renovation and beautification of this portion of the hotel property.

 -Without the protection of the THD, we risk deteriorating and vanishing inns similar to the Corey Ave district.

 -Without proper zoning the inns will become economically unviable in the future and will likely disappear and be replaced by massive single family homes.

 -We support a compromise from Coconut Inn to agree NOT to build on the 12th Ave lot except in case of a catastrophic loss.

    4 years ago Comments: The Coconut Inn is real attribute to Pass A Grille. I think the additions they are requesting further this already beautiful renovation. I understand the concerns some neighbors have, however, we live directly next to a multi-unit apartment complex (approx 15 units) and we do not have any noise issues. In many instances in PAG there are people/tourists/non-residents fishing, laying in the sun etc. within 50 feet of homes. That is the uniqueness (and privilege) of living here.

    4 years ago Comments: It is because of the small inns and graciousness of Joe and Maggie that I moved to the area. For years my extended family and friends have stayed at the inns. During personal conversations throughout the years Joe has never mentioned ever wanting to change the feel or size of his businesses in PAG. His family loves the community as everyone else who lives here does. The enhancement projects he wants to complete will only serve to enhance the property and continue to draw more tourism to the area. Isn't this what the City Commission claims we need? More tourism? When completed The Coconut Inn will be more beautiful than now. We should be gratefeul that someone has rehabed the property. Do you forget what it looked like before? The vacant and uncared for properties look better? Does anyone believe that The Castle Hotel is an example of what we want visitors to think of (just one example)? The residents and CITY COMMISSION can't have it both ways and what is done by and for one merchant should be the same for Sabal Palms and Coconut Inn.
