THERE WILL BE A PUBLIC MEETING TONIGHT TO DISCUSS THE PROPOSED ZONING CHANGES TO THE WESTON RESORT.  THE COMMITTEE IS SCHEDULED TO MEET AT 7PM TODAY AT THE ENGLEWOOD BEACH VILLAS AT 2000 BAYVIEW, JUST OFF OF BEACH ROAD.  THE MANASOTA AND SANDPIPER KEYS ADVISORY COMMITTEE HAD INTENDED TO DISCUSS THE ISSUE AT THEIR FIRST MEETING LAST WEEK, BUT DECIDED A SPECIAL MEETING WOULD ALLOW FOR MORE INPUT FROM THE PUBLIC SINCE SOME FELT THE MEETING WAS NOT PUBLICIZED ENOUGH AHEAD OF TIME.  THE WESTON IS APPARENTLY FOR SALE AND THE GROUP HARMONIE DEVELOPMENT WANTS THE COUNTY TO CHANGE THE ZONING FROM MULTI-FAMILY TO COMMERCIAL SO THEY CAN REPORTEDLY OPEN A HOLISTIC HEALTH GETAWAY THERE.  CHARLOTTE COUNTY COMMISSIONERS ARE SCHEDULED TO CONSIDER THE REZONING WHEN THEY MEET ON NOVEMBER 15TH, AND THEY HOPE TONIGHT’S MEETING WILL GIVE THEM AN IDEA WHAT THE RESIDENTS AROUND THE RESORT THINK ABOUT IT.
