The Presidents Council established an Incorporation Committee to explore whether forming a township between the Martin County line and FPL power plant on Hutchinson Island was practical. The committee met for 4 months to perform a preliminary evaluation at no cost. If the result was to go forward, a budget would have been developed and funding sources explored.
The recommendation by the committee was to discontinue the project at this time, because there was no compelling reason to incorporate. The sense that most residents had that were talked with was that it would be costly to the taxpayers. (Hobe Sound we found had done an Incorporation Study that cost $140K between the feasibility study and PR campaign only to have the voters reject it by 60 to 40 percent.)
