To the editor:
What in the world is the problem with the Lehigh Acres Community Planning Corp. (LACPP) having an issue with Katie Szynal putting an Ice House America business in Lehigh? I read the article in The Lehigh Acres Citizen when Katie Szynal appeared before them to let them know about her new business in Lehigh.
What a joke - Ms. Tami Baker and Mr. Edd Weiner, to respond by saying that it "doesn't fit into the downtown planned development," and "was not acceptable." What downtown development? This town has been led by the same handful of folks since we moved here 15 years ago. All we have seen is dollar stores galore, and any decent business leaving town.
Why do we seriously need seven Chinese food establishments in town? Really? We love Chinese food, don't get me wrong, but seven? I am getting sick and tired of Lehigh being a laughing stock. I can't tell you how many comments have been made to me from Ft. Myers, Cape Coral, to Port Charlotte residents, commenting on Lehigh - we have an awful reputation.
If there is a group of honest residents, who truly wish to see our town change for the better, I would be more than happy to join the bandwagon - and oh, go for it Katie Szynal - gotta love half price ice.
