Southeast Lee County Plan wins 2010 CNU Charter Award

A plan for managing conservation & development in the 83,000 acre Southeast Lee County DR/GR won a 2010 Charter Award of Excellence from the Congress for the New Urbanism. The Density Reduction/ Groundwater Resource Area hosts neighborhoods, mines, farms, endangered species and public supply wells. The plan recommends the optimal mix, locations and form of uses and utilizes a Transferable Development Rights Program to keep each use compact and preserve critical natural systems. The plan was adopted in March of 2010 by the Lee County Board of County Commissioners.
