Nikki Luben started this petition to The other 4 commissioners that voted the grant down

The FDOT – (Florida Transportation Department) – advised Collier County that we had won the grant for median landscaping along the new section of US 41 East from 951 east to Greenway Rd., and also for the remaining section of Collier Blvd/951 between US41 and Marco Island. The State will pay the cost to landscape both of those medians, but the county must agree to maintain those medians from that point on.  As we all know, our median landscaping has drawn attention from all over the USA for the beauty it creates in our community, and many counties and states have followed suit. The folks at NABOR (Naples Area Board of Realtors) have always been supportive of this initiative, as has the CBIA (Collier Building Industry Association), the TDC (Tourist Development Council) and neighborhoods in general, because they see the value in the beauty it creates, as well as the positive return on investment.

4 of our county commissioners voted the grant down and even stated they wanted to see no more median landscaping! One even said the people in District 1 couldn’t afford it, and the others stated they wanted to hear nothing further on the subject. The 4 that voted it down are: Burt Saunders, Bill McDaniel, Penny Taylor and Andy Solis, Esq.

This petition is to communicate to those 4 commissioners a loud and clear message that we want that grant and we believe median landscaping is critical to our area.
