Plan for Southeast Lee County Upheld

A court ruling has upheld amendments to Lee County’s land use plan to protect environmentally sensitive land and protect the County's aquifer. Lee County fought to defend the plan created by a multi-disciplinary team headed by Dover, Kohl & Partners. The Density Reduction/ Groundwater Resource Area, a 130 square mile study area, includes about 250 wells that provide 80 percent of the County's water supply, as well as wetlands and other habitat used by endangered and threatened species, including the Florida panther, wood stork and Bald Eagle.
