Review of New Horizon 2035 Lee Plan elements continues

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 our March blog 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 in March, the staff began presenting draft Comp Plan language for each of the elements in the Plan.

The next two elements were presented to the LPA on April 23rd (8:30 a.m. in BoCC Chambers).  The two elements are:
1.  Intergovernmental Coordination Element
2.  Parks, Recreation, and Open Space Element

The two elements will also be discussed at the May 16th CSAC meeting at 6:00 p.m. in the County Administration conference room.  At the beginning of both committee meetings, the agendas include an opportunity for public comment. We encourage you to participate in this process.
