Review of New Horizon 2035 Lee Plan elements continues

BikeWalkLee 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:  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 Thursday, May 31st (8:30 a.m. in BoCC Chambers).  The two elements are:
1.  Capital Improvements--This element addresses the public services and infrastructure systems, including transportation and includes the transportation concurrency issue.
2.  Historic Preservation
 Click here to read the documents.

The two elements will also be discussed at the June 20th 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.

Also on the LPA agenda for May 31st is the county's draft Capital Improvement Program (CIP) for FY 2012/13-2016/17 for review, which includes all the county's infrastructure projects, including transportation.
