Owner seeks mediation over rejected business proposal

FORT MYERS, Fla. — Bonita Springs City Council has rejected a rezoning proposal, as well as the reconsideration of the rezoning plans, to construct a new carwash.

FORT MYERS, Fla. — A landowner who wants to construct a carwash on U.S. 41 wants to go to mediation over Bonita Springs City Council’s rejections of his business proposal, according to news-press.com.

Max Levine of Cardome LLC of Miami, which proposed the carwash, suggested to meet in front of a mediator to try to reach a compromise, stated the release.

“The alternative to mediation is totally unnecessary mediation,” said Levine in the article. “I am almost 100 percent confident that we can resolve the issue in mediation; it will be considerably less contentious, [and] it will be considerably less time-consuming and less expensive.”

The City Council rejected a proposal to rezone a parcel located on S. Tamiami Trail to permit the construction of the carwash in July, reported the article, and then rejected the reconsideration of the rezoning plans two weeks later.

The planning and development members recommended rejecting the proposal because of “incompatibility wit surrounding property and unfavorable sight lines from the highway,” the article continued.

On Sept. 4, noted the article, Cardome filed an appeal under a provision of the state’s Bert Harris Act.
