ULI Service Panels, a long tradition of assisting communities

ULI has assisted communities since 1947 in any number of issues including development, land use, transportation, sustainability and healthy places.
This week I am participating in a panel that will work with the residents of the three barrier island towns of Anna Maria (Bradenton Beach, Holmes Beach and Anna Maria) on a list of challenges that the residents, commissioners and mayors of these three communities put together,. Their chief concern appears to be that they feel overrun and that their residential communities are changing from permanent residents or yearly renters to short-term use by weekly visitors.

Peaceful and idyllic (Bradenton Beach pier)

but also congested. Can success devour itself?

Small beach cottages grow larger and are increasingly  rented to weekly visitors
