Deny approval of DCI2017-00010 Oak Villages, a proposed High Density 276-Unit Development

This petition had 1,807 supporters

We ask that Lee County and its Commissioners DENY the Zoning Change Request DCI 2017-00010 in order to build a proposed very high density 276 unit apartment complex including Bonus Density Units per LDC Sec. 2-146.

The proposed development is in NO WAY COMPATIBLE with existing and adjacent single-family properties but rather VERY DESTRUCTIVE to the character and integrity of the RURAL residential environment. We believe this proposed development does not meet numerous Lee County Development Plan Policies including but not limited to Policy 5.1.5, Policy 2.2.1, Policy 135.9.5. and Policy 135.9.6

Additionally, extremely High-Density developments in this area should not even be considered by Lee County until the necessary road infrastructure is in place, which currently is inadequate, ackward and EXTREMELY DANGEROUS. There are no sidewalks on existing streets, many roads are private, no public transportation or parks. This is a RURAL area being treated as if it is Central Urban. Lee County does not show any improvements or infrastructure/road projects for this area in any of their future/long-term plans.

The site is located within the Daniels Pkwy and Colonial Blvd Corridor off Penzance Blvd. The application for permitting is currently being reviewed by the Lee County Staff with public hearing notice most likely to follow in the near future.

Status and updates in regards to the Lee County review process of this permit application can be found on the Lee County econnect website here:
