Naples City Council To Decide Future Of Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club

Councilman-elect Ray Christman will be sworn onto the Naples City Council on April 17. Coincidentally, that’s the same day a long-watched development project lands before the board.

Plans to redevelop the 120-acre Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club go to council members after winning Planning Board approval last month.

The impending project was the topic of campaign debates. Christman said that as he promised on the trail, he will look at preserving a beloved public asset on site. He wants a golf course preserved in perpetuity as some kind of green space — “ a public park or something like that.”

Developers are represented by attorney John Passidomo, husband to state Sen. Kathleen Passidomo.

Christman on Tuesday won a special election in the city over three other candidates, including former City Manager Bill Moss.

He will serve out the term of former Councilwoman Linda Penniman, who resigned because of a family health issue.
