  • To conduct a public hearing prior to the recommendation to the Board of County Commissioners for the adoption or amendment of the Lee Plan or any element of the plan.
  • To monitor and oversee the effectiveness and status of the Lee Plan and make recommendations for amendments to the Lee Plan that may be required from time to time.
  • To evaluate and appraise the Lee Plan and prepare reports as required by Chapter 163.3191, Florida Statutes.
