2004 Lee County Comprehensive Plan Update


What issues do you believe are most important to the sustainable development of Lee County? Does the current plan adequately address those major issues? What changes do you envision to better direct the development of our county through the comprehensive plan?

The Lee County Division of Planning has completed the transmittal document for the  Comprehensive Plan Evaluation and Appraisal Report (EAR).  This planning activity is mandated by Florida Chapter 163, the Growth Management Act. The EAR is a review of the Comprehensive Plan that is to be completed once every seven years. The 2004 review process will focus on the Lee Plan' effectiveness in dealing with major issues that face our county.
