City of Cocoa Beach To Discuss Nude Motel, Minuteman Sidewalk
COCOA BEACH, Florida -- The City of Cocoa Beach Commission meeting on May 5, 2012 at 7 p.m. has on its scheduled agenda a discussion regarding the recently announced Fawlty Towers Motel change to a clothing optional resort which is slated to go nude on May 1, 2012.
The resort, which opened in 1988, is located in the heart of Cocoa Beach's tourist district, just one block away from Ron Jon Surf Shop and on the main road leading to Shepard Park, a popular beach park for visiting tourists. The Fawlty Towers Resort is located at 100 East Cocoa Beach Causeway in Cocoa Beach, Florida.
The resort's website says that it will "promote family-orientated nudism, which shall be wholesome and non-sexual." Single males will be required to qualify before being allowed to visit the resort.
The layout of the resort has a fully-enclosed community area, with a pool and tiki bar that is not visible from outside the resort property.
Also on the agenda is whether the City of Cocoa Beach will abandon its plan to build a sidewalk on the northern side of Minuteman Causeway for a less costlier option. City staff recommends that the City abandon the plans.
