The article presents some of our arguments against moving the Harbor Bay Club and compares them to what we know are Ron Cowan and Harbor Bay Isle Associates’ strongest arguments for moving the Club in order to build 80 to 160 new homes. Moreover, the comments from City Planner Andrew Thomas are consistent with how we believe the City should view our opposition.
Author of the article, Bill Chapin, is a former reporter currently studying public planning. Mr. Chapin clearly shows he understands issues of development are equal parts what a developer wants to do and what a developer actually can do. That is a critical concept for our city leaders to understand.
You can make sure our city leaders know this issue is important to you by sending them an email RIGHT NOW. Use this link.

- Cowan/HBIA’s false claims of an “indisputed right” to build more homes. Read more here.
- HBIA’s recent campaign to smear HBN is way off base. Read more here.
- The Harbor Bay Club has a long, well-documented connection to the residential development. Read more here.
