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.
