I ordinarily don’t send a blanket message to everyone I know who has a link to Old Town Key West, however as of late there has been a great deal of concern over the HARC approval of building plans for a property on Eaton Street which most people said would “never pass in a million years.” Well, it passed pretty much on the first reading!
If you’ve been surprised to drive down Simonton Street to see a large rectangular monolith erected in the 700 block, or surprised by the plans for a Truman Avenue restaurant to build in a quasi- modern – retro instead of the historic flavor you’d expect to greet visitors to Old Town, don’t be.
Again, If you’ve been surprised, don’t be. These projects have been greeted by HARC members exclaiming: “This is just what we’ve been asking for!” And “I can barley contain my excitement!” “This is a Grand Slam!”
Please go to the link and sign the petition, whether you are a registered voter, an owner, visiter, or a long distance Conch!
If you know any local Key Wester’s or visitors who would support the movement to “Keep Old Town Old,” help preserve Old Town Key West by forwarding the link to: “Petition to Mayor Cates.”
