All should be treated equally

To the Editor:

As you ride down Estero Boulevard south of the Red Coconut RV Park, you cannot help but notice the reconstruction of driveways being uprooted by the right of way issue.

There is one exception, the Red Coconut RV Park, whose owners are in negotiations Lee County on Estero Boulevard and with the Town Council on Donora Boulevard. Many residents are complying with the current laws regarding land use on Estero Boulevard. If the county gives some consideration to one parcel owner they should offer the same to all the rest of those on Estero Boulevard. So should the town. I'm sure Mr. Torgerson would like to get 20 foot of right of way leased to him.

Didn't the town negotiate with the Red Coconut RV Park regarding a water usage problem where there was a missing meter not too long ago? I don't recall how that was resolved.

Fran Myers was recently quoted as saying that they would lose the fourth row of trailers or motor homes if they complied with the county. I think they should consider themselves lucky to have had all that additional revenue by encroaching on the right of way for all these years (since 1984). It's time to pay the piper.

I feel there should be no special treatment given to commercial property over residential. All are equal, or should be.
