Opposed to Small Brothers Development at Alico-Corkscrew Connect

The Inner Loop Working Group's mission is to ensure integrity and safety in community development impacting the 17 mile loop connecting Alico, Corkscrew & Ben Hill Griffin. The Small Brothers Development would put a Publix in the Flint Pen Strand. This placement severs the connectivity of water and wildlife moving through the Inner Loop and puts Lee County and your family's source of drinking water at risk. Lee County is wasting our TAX DOLLARS by pursuing development in one of the wettest, flood prone ecologically sensitive spots in our county.

This Small Brother Development would be placed in the historic flow-way of the Flinlf Pen Strand. Water flows under Corkscrew Road, through Flint Pen Strand before entering the Imperial River. Does Estero need additional water flowing onto our roadways, into our ditches and being sent into the Estero River basin full of nutrients and toxins? Seasonal flooding will wash toxins and waste into our Estero water. Algae anyone?

When does the family trip to the grocery store turn deadly? Corkscrew Road overage is pouring onto Alico Road and into the mining corridor. Lee County has wasted tax dollors to advance a site that is UNSUITABLE for development. Our drinking water, water quality, roadways and homes are in peril! Tell Lee County to STOP wasting our TAX MONEY today!

Honorable Commisioners,
I am adamantly opposed to Small Brothers Commercial. I am concerned for public safety, health and quality of life including flooding, water quality and environmental impacts. I do not support tax dollars being spent to advance this site that is unsuitable for development and includes a flow-way, wetlands and well fields. I support maintaining the connectivity between Flint Pen and Wild Turkey Strands through the Inner Loop.
