Next phase of New Horizon 2035 Lee Plan update process begins

Bike WalkLee has been participating in this year-long process of updating the Lee Plan to ensure that the complete streets/sustainability focus in the EAR is carried through in the actual Comp Plan amendments.
Background: As reported in earlier blog posts, as well as a January post,  Horizon 2035 is a comprehensive review and update of the Lee Plan through the year 2035. The Evaluation and Appraisal Report (EAR) adopted by the Commissioners in early 2011 resulted in a sustainable vision for growth and development. The County is now using this vision as the basis to update the Lee Plan’s goals, objectives and policies. Over the past 8 months, the staff developed and committees reviewed a series of issue papers.  Starting this month, the staff is now presenting draft Comp Plan language for each of the elements in the Plan.  The first three elements were presented to the LPA on March 26th and will be presented to the CSAC on April 18th.  The three elements are:
1.  Vision Statement
2.  Community Safety and Wellbeing (this new section includes complete streets)
3.  Economic Element

The three elements will also be discussed at the April 18th CSAC meeting at 6:00 p.m. in the County Administration conference room.  The next series of elements will be discussed at the LPA meeting on April 23rd at 8:30 a.m. in the BoCC Chambers. At the beginning of the meetings, the agendas include an opportunity for public comment. We encourage you to participate in this process.
