Lee County has Adopted the DR/GR Land Development Regulations

Lee County, Florida adopted land development regulations for managing conservation & development in the 83,000 acre Southeast Lee County DR/GR on June 8. The Southeast Lee County Plan became fully operational with the adoption of land development regulations limiting mining to an area of lesser environmental sensitivity, and providing a transferable development rights program combined with a form-based code. 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.
