Action Alert: Last call to participate in land use scenarios survey: How should we grow?

Your assistance is needed in this important survey about how we want Lee County to grow in the future.  If you haven't completed the survey, please do so before April 2nd, and encourage your friends and co-workers to also participate.  Please take the Lee County MPO survey at! 

In February,  The Lee MPO launched its land use scenarios "how should we grow?" survey and the window for participating draws to a close on April 2nd, so here's your last chance to share your thoughts. The MPO has had a strong response to our “How should we grow?” survey, but it's important that as many people in the community as possible participate.  For the BikeWalkLee network, it's a chance to share our vision of county that's walkable, bikeable, and transit-friendly.

Please take the Lee County MPO survey at

Nearly 400,000 new residents are expected to reside in Lee County by the year 2040. To address the transportation needs of our growing communities, the Lee County Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) is currently exploring ways to reduce the number of vehicle trips and increase travel options. This involves looking at where future residents and jobs may locate in Lee County over the next 25 years. 

To do this, conceptual growth scenarios are being presented in an online survey. The MPO is asking the public to share their ideas about new ways to grow relating to future transportation investments.  

Public input will be used by the MPO Board members to help select a preferred approach to future growth and the corresponding transportation system needed to support that growth. This is a first step in developing the Lee County 2040 Long Range Transportation Plan.  To learn more about the scenarios project, please visit
