Participate in workshops on the Lee Plan to let county know complete streets are priority

As we continue to push for implementation, it is important to let the county know that complete streets are a priority for citizens. We have an immediate opportunity to get our message across at the county’s public visioning workshops designed to get feedback on the land use plan (the Lee Plan). The Lee County Division of Planning will hold workshops through May 2010 as part of their EAR (Evaluation and Review) process. The EAR is an every-7-year evaluation of the strengths and weaknesses of the Lee Plan. The current Lee Plan is one of the primarily barriers to implementing complete streets. Please make it a priority to attend and let the county know that citizens want better access to our destinations by walking, biking, and public transit. Meetings are held throughout the county. For more information and get on the mailing list click here.

If you can't make one of the workshops, please click here for a questionnaire that you can fill out and submit. Our input is very important to ensuring that the Lee Plan vision for the future reflects the communities desires for complete streets and livable communities. Thank you!
