Naples Bluffs Up For Auction
By an edhat reader
I was disappointed to learn that 207 acres of the beautiful mostly undeveloped Naples bluffs are up for auction on December 9.

I was hoping they might eventually be turned into a public park or nature preserve. While most of the trees are non-native, there are still a lot of native chaparral and grasses. There used to be an oilfield here several decades ago, but Arco Oil did a good job of removing most of the above-ground traces.
Does anyone know the restrictions of development? I hope the new buyers do not put a mini-mansion on every half-acre. Also, I have heard a rumor that a new future North/South coastal trail or bike path may run through this property. Is this true? I hope the new landowners will allow easier access to the Naples Reef beach and Driftwoods beach.
