Sarasota News Leader June 7, 2013 OPINION Page 67 LETTERS TO THE EDITOR PUBLIC HEARING ON SIESTA RIGHT OF WAY NEEDS TO BE REOPENED To the editor: The slacker landlocked lot owners in a Siesta Key subdivision just gave away their access to a public canal by not showing up for a public hearing and telling the County Commission where to get off (Trumping the 'comp plan,' May 31). How much is water access worth in regard to the value of their land? Where was the vaunted Siesta Key Association during this hearing? The three commissioners (Charles Hines, Joe Barbetta, Carolyn Mason) who approved this need to be raked over the coals for giving up public right of way for nothing. So much for the comp plan. This hearing needs be reopened. Richard C. Thomas Sarasota LETTERS TO THE EDITOR The Sarasota News Leader welcomes letters to the editor from its readers.
