Stakeholders can be both organizations and people, but ultimately you must communicate with people. So, be sure to identify the correct individual stakeholders within a stakeholder organization.
Feeling Fit has moved to a new day. Get your weekly dose of health and hope every Saturday! Heres what I have to say about the alligator hunt: A diamond in the rough. With that positive tone, the Charlotte County Economic Development website trumpets the potential of Murdock Village, a vast stretch of county-owned land that sits vacant near U.
What that sales pitch omits, however, is that the diamonds luster has dulled over time.
More than a decade of debt obligation has turned this once promising parcel into a money-sucking albatross that draws ire from taxpayers and sends ofcials scattering at the mere mention of its name. The assumption was that consolidating the existing platted residential lots would facilitate a major redevelopment of the area.
Moreover, county ofcials gured that if all the platted lots had homes, the cost to provide needed county services would outweigh the countys resources and tax revenue.
Adam Cummings, a member of the County Commission at the time, recalls the fundamental problem was that the county was platted for more thanresidential lots that could support a population of more than half a million people. This formula for growth without adequate commer cial and industrial land and necessary infrastructure was, and remains today, a recipe for disaster, he said.
Charlotte County was already platted to be the size of Tampa, he said. The county was not platted as a community.
It was platted to sell homes. While the countys original intent was a project of much smaller scale, the decision to pursue a more enter prising plan was born of good intentions, a booming real estate market and no small amount of irony.
The reason for the really large expansion was to avoid taxpayer subsidization, Cummings said. Developers were clamoring for it. And thats what drove it. This went sideways because developers were telling us they would pay for it all if we added a residential component. Despite the controversy of using eminent domain as a weapon to purchase the land, of the 77 homes inside the village only three went through the eminent domain process, and all three of those homeowners agreed to a price.
Cummings remembers one commission meeting, in particular, when an older woman approached the dais with a plea, Please, do not take my house.
But while empathetic with her plight, Cummings explained that, if the commission did not act, more homes would have been lost in order to build the roads needed to support growth. Road to nowhere or path to future? Former Charlotte County Commissioner Adam Cummings The last of the grapes are ripening; the avocados should soon be ready for the table.
Our suburban yard is not very large. Much of the front lawn on our crowded lot is given over to the half-circle of river rock designed to let our car exit to the street without backing up.
Still, over the years I have been able to add to the landscape some of my favorite plants. Favorites are any that feed me.
When we moved in 34 years ago, our house was the rst built in the Plantation subdivision. With a neighborhood pond on two sides, it is not surprising that when we visited the site during construction, a foot alligator was usually resting in the driveway.
With a beagle and a black lab ready to move in with us, a fence seemed prudent. We disguised it with ame vine across the back and Florida jasmine on the sides.
There was room enough to mingle several Florida grape vines in with the ame vine. As the rst house, our fence was grandfathered in before the efforts of newer homeowners to regulate the neighborhood to look like a Michigan version of the Bahamas.
In the front yard, an orange tree managed to reach fruit-bearing size before giving way to disease. Hardy and more generous in fruit was a Samoan coconut tree planted from a nut mailed from my brother Peters backyard tree in Hawaii.Darden School of Business, University of Virginia Elis and Signe Olsson Professor of Business Administration, Academic Director, Business Roundtable Institute for Corporate Ethics.
