County Workshop on Conservation 20/20

May 15 @ 1:30 pm

Our five Lee County Commissioners will be meeting at a workshop next Tuesday, May 15th at 1:30 pm at 2201 Second Street, Fort Myers to discuss Conservation 20/20 funding and the land acquisition criteria process for the foreseeable future.
The program’s objectives are to acquire, restore, improve, and manage land for conservation, surface water management and flow way enhancement with a focus on water quality, water recharge and supply, flood control, wildlife habitat, passive public recreation, and preservation of open spaces. You’ll agree that’s quite a “To Do” list.
Although the commissioners won’t be taking public comment at that time, the meeting is open to everyone and we encourage you to attend if you can. However for now, please take a minute to call or email your Lee County Commissioners BEFORE that meeting to let them know that you want to see this program continue with strong and robust funding so those mission objectives can be fully achieved. Tell them which of those objectives are important to you.
Let the Commissioners know that it is important to continue to purchase conservation land and that they should adequately and fully fund the Conservation 20/20 program in order to do so. Lastly, remind them of your 84% “Yes” vote on the referendum in 2016 on Conservation 20/20.  Thank you.
