Fla. City Removes Campground From Project (1/8/2019)
Story by Woodall's Campground Management
Trails for horseback riding and any form of camping facilities were cut by the North Port (Fla.) City Commission from the Warm Mineral Springs Park master plan Monday (Jan. 7), while an event market area was relocated off of the 21.6-acre springs activity center to the adjacent park acreage, according to the Sarasota Herald-Tribune.
“A shopaholic that I am, if I have to walk by shops, it's going to ruin my day,” resident Joan San Lwin said during public comment at a public workshop on the proposed plan, adding that she did not welcome that type of intrusion in that part of the park.
City Commissioner Jill Luke, a frequent springs visitor, agreed.
“Having it in front of that peaceful place you walk into, it totally destroys the environment you're walking into,” she said.
San Lwin, along with most other speakers, urged the commission to keep development on the adjacent 61.4 acres around as serene as possible.
Grigory Pogrebinsky, who plans to build and operate a health and wellness resort on 17 acres adjacent to the 83-acre park, took it one step further. Pogrebinsky stressed that people visit the springs for their purported healing qualities, not for retail or camping.
