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. This week the important Transportation Element has been released for review.
Updated Schedule for Review of Elements by Committees:
BikeWalkLee is very focused on the transportation element, which is critical to implementation of a balanced transportation system and complete streets. We are working with staff and will be providing comments on the draft as it becomes available and will share those comments with committees as well as our network.
Revised meeting dates:
LPA--Nov. 26th & Dec. 10th: The Transportation Element will be reviewed in in these two meetings.
CSAC--Nov. 28th: The Transportation Element will be reviewed at this meeting.
BPAC--Their planed Oct. 17th workshop on the Transportation Element hasn't been rescheduled yet. Stay tuned.
Want to Attend Committee Meetings?
At both committees there is an opportunity for public comments and the public is encouraged to participate.
- The LPA meets on Monday mornings (usually 1st Monday of month) at 8:30 a.m. in the County Board chambers. Additional Monday meetings have been added to provide more time for review of the Comp Plan elements.
- The CSAC meetings on Wednesday evenings at 6:00 p.m. (usually 3rd Wednesday of month) in the conference room of Admin Building (2115 Second Streets, Fort Myers).
[Note: draft elements become available to the public 10 days prior to the LPA committee review. Check the County's Horizon 2035 web page for documents.
The County developed an online interactive way for the public to participate in the process.
Earlier this month, the County posted four more topics on its "Town Hall" interactive website. Here's your chance to give a thumbs up or provide comments. Please participate!
