The family seeking to build Arches Bayfront entertainment district, where Moss Marina sits on Fort Myers Beach, hasn’t given up their plans despite being denied a needed change to the town’s future land-use plan. 

Ben Freeland, owner of the marina, said he will return to Town Council and the Fort Myers Beach Local Planning Agency with his request to change the land-use designation and with his detailed plans for the project. 

The town’s planning council turned down his request last month to change his property designated marina to pedestrian commercial.  The Freelands are caught in a Catch-22 situation where they can’t proceed with rezoning until they get the changed designation.
