Letter to the Editor, From the Mayor

To the Lee County School District and Staff,

The presentation by the Lee County School District at Estero High School regarding the future Bonita High School was fantastic!  I want to thank the School District Board and Staff for their hard work on behalf of our community’s future and our children’s education.  I know that the search for a high school site in Bonita has been an “odyssey” (as Reggie Snell put it) and that there has been a great deal of concern, fear and downright meanness expressed by some of my fellow citizens, but after seeing all the facts, listening to the school board staff as they took great care to answer any and every question and assertion that has been raised and after seeing the proposed Imperial design and the data, I am convinced beyond any doubt that the Imperial site is THE site.  The best site in Bonita Springs for a high school!   

I know that some will still have doubts about this site and to object, complain and to play politics with this process while they demand that you continue to look for other sites, but I think that it is abundantly clear that OUR search for a Bonita Springs High School site is over!!  

Therefore, as a long time citizen of Bonita Springs and someone that has been intimately involved in this community for the last thirty years, I would respectfully ask the School District to please proceed with acquisition and development of this site and to implement your remarkable, well thought out vision for this school and this community.

With all my thanks and gratitude, 

Ben
