Punta Gorda Isles Canals News Article ... PGI THEN and NOW

September 12th, 2014 5:45 PM by Tammy Vaughn

At the bottom of this blog is a link to a very useful Newspaper Article in the Sun Newspaper, which gives all of the Particulars of the Punta Gorda Isles Waterfront Canals.

Back in the 70s, when I was still a single digit, my Mom worked for Punta Gorda Isles during the developmental stages.  Of course as a child, I was not too concerned about the housing market, population growth, or boating access.  But, it was a time of many firsts for me. 

THEN: From the viewpoint of a child in growing Punta Gorda Isles:  I saw my first Helicopter.. as the developers flew into Punta Gorda Isles Administration;  I hopped my first hump back bridge on my bike;  I saw my first waterfall inside a house, my first waterfall for that matter ..'House of the Waterfall' model;  copied my hand with the xerox machine.. that was cool;  and caught my first fish in a PGI Canal.

NOW: Thank goodness I grew up a little, would break my neck jumping bridges.  Now, working as a Realtor in Punta Gorda Isles, I see plenty of New construction in a Beautiful community lined with Palm trees and side walks, in such a perfect location with great walkability and The Best Boating Access Around!  The community has restrictions which maintains the beauty of the area, but beyond the restrictions, most of the residents are at a level of intelligence and self pride, who choose to maintiain the beauty of their footprint.  At the end of Marion Ave, Ponce De Leon park is a great beachy area with a boat ramp, wild life center, and nature walk. The waterfront land of Punta Gorda Isles is being sold off quickly leaving many cul-de-sac lots and short seawall lots left for sale.  I predict, the future phase of development will be  regentrification.. 'Tear Downs' and 'Rebuilds' .  If you need more information about the area and if you are in the market to buy a Florida Home or build new construction, be sure to give me a call at (941)628-6768..
