Frank Roberts, completed a trip which took them to Matecumbe, Marathon, Tavernier. Windley Island, Key Largo and Planta tion Key. “New construction that has gone ahead on tho keys was im pressive,” Gandolfo said. “I think that soop several of the keys will resemble prosperous communi ties, even cities. “I expect the construction in another year will be much more impressive than the work that has been done up the keys in the last year. I 1 was told that a lot of future construction is now being planned. “Nowhere did I find that the construction was cheap. Most of the homes that have been' built will run from SIO,OOO to $25,000 each.” Much of the new construction, notably on Plantation Key, has gone ahead on lands leased from the state. On this type of con struction no assessments can be placed, but Gandolfo said that all of it would be in the form of personal property taxes. He said that the direct real es tate assessments and the personal property assessments would ,bc about $225,000 increase this year over last.
