Timeshare Owners Launch Petition

Several Pelican Resort timeshare owners have posted an on-line petition collecting signatures for a campaign intended to block the construction of a new high-rise marina at Pelican Timeshare Resort.

The timeshare owners contend that the new structure is going to block visibility from “many C and D units whose owners were told, when buying, that their views would never be blocked.”

According to the petition organisers, the on-line petition has been posted to stop the construction as it is now planned and to compel the developers to adhere to their commitment to timeshare owners.

The petition, which has been posted at , is addressed to the Island Government of St. Maarten and Board of Directors, Tenants Association, Pelican Resort Club.

It reads: “We, the undersigned, hereby petition the Board of Directors of the Tenants Association Pelican Timeshare Resort Club to cease and desist the building of the new Marina Complex at Pelican Resort Club at Billy Folly Road, Simpson Bay, Sint Maarten, Netherlands Antilles, as it is currently planned.

“The design of this complex directly contradicts specific promises made to buyers of the C and D Buildings at Pelican, who were told that views from thier timeshares would never be compromised.

“On that basis thousands of timeshare owners bought in good faith, only to see their investments devalued in their view by the construction of a high-rise directly in front of their units.

“The undersigned also petition the Island Government of St. Maarten to intervene and stop this project or require its developers to fully respect and act upon the specific promises made to current timeshare owners by altering the building plans so new construction will not affect any views from any existing Pelican buildings.”
