"We're just saying..hey..there are thousands of us, thousands of citizens cant be wrong about what they want,” said Karp.

Karp belongs to the organization, The Cape Coral Preservation PAC who at the start of 2024 launched a petition that would give people the chance to vote to stop all redevelopment of Jaycee Park.
