The Village and its consultants have envisioned a Village Center of mixed-use, walkable, transit-ready neighborhoods supportive of residential, commercial, recreational and civic uses. The center could be integrated with existing community-wide amenities like the Koreshan State Historic Park, the Estero River, the Community Park, Coconut Point, and the planned Lee Memorial Coconut Point Healthcare Village.
Planning consultants Bill Spikowski and Seth Harry will give an update on the Village Center project and seek input fromyouabout what incentivesyouthink the Village should provide to developers in exchange for the featuresyouvalue most. The best Village Center will be achieved by a joint Village, public and developer effort.
