The beaches of Naples are consistently ranked among the best in Florida and the country. Our water, land and wildlife are special treasures that attract people from all over the world. Our natural resources contribute to our quality of life, and they are a critical asset in tourism.
These natural resources must be protected. The investments we make in preserving our water, land and wildlife must be financially reasonable. The actions we take today must be considered over the short and long term.
The least expensive option for dealing with an issue may have dire consequences and negative financial impact in years to come, so each solution must be carefully considered. When preserving our natural resources, we need to consider the best ecological methods and make sound financial investments that produce the longest lasting effects.
