Haldeman’s Landing: A Challenge To The Boat Dock Plan

Posted on Monday, April 28, 2014


After successful negotiations with Windstar on Naples Bay for annexation and an ownership change the “shovel readiness” of the Haldeman’s Landing project grows closer.   Like many new developments in Naples today more new construction is welcomed by the Naples buyer as supplies are very short and more folks are moving into town.  The challenge is how best to balance the development with the beauty and lifestyle of Naples and the folks already living here.  A challenge which may be met with compromise and clear thinking so all may benefit.

Quite a bit of work has gone into the Haldeman’s Landing project.  The development would provide a nice uplift to the Bayshore area.

Think of all the improvements in the Bayshore area which have already made a big difference.  Windstar on Naples Bay – a little known secret in town – provides a Tom Fazio course right on Naples Bay, a yacht club and the only private shuttle to Keewaydin Island.  Then there is the Isles of Collier’s Preserve and its balanced approach to developing a large tract of land while protecting some very important environmental areas.

The improvements keep on coming. The Naples Botanical Garden with over 100,000+ visits a year, Hamilton Harbor with perhaps the most convenient and best indoor boat storage in Naples, CAPA’s efforts to build a performing art center, the 360 restaurant with its yummy foods and relaxed atmosphere, the renovations of the Real McCaw and its wonderful offerings and numerous other efforts to develop and improve Bayshore. Heck even the boulevard and median landscaping provides a big improvement over the old road.

Haldeman’s Landing is a much-needed development to add more new property options for our growing community.  With its approved annexation to Windstar on Naples Bay, Haldeman’s Landing will offer the same amenity options as Windstar and provide one of the best new construction options in the area.

New development is often tough to balance with the interests of the existing property owners – and rightly so.  Our lifestyle here is fantastic and we should protect and preserve it.  The Naples News reported this morning there is a challenge to Haldeman’s Landing’s plans for boating. Please read the full article at   It would be great to find a way for the Haldeman’s Landing folks to enjoy boating on the creek as I do, but we must also find a way to balance the interests of the new arrivals with the existing folks – and i am sure we can.

I applaud the efforts to work out an approach to boating in the creek. If you have not been back into Haldeman Creek country it is just beautiful.  There are homes nestled in the back country creek so close to town but with a feel of old Florida living. Hopefully an approach may be worked out where Haldeman’s Landing may be allowed boat access but at the same time the interests of the new boaters may be balanced with the other needs and concerns of the neighborhood.
