Village building height survey

In 2011, the panel conducted a community survey of property owners
in the Village to determine a consensus on which building-height standard should be applied to Village lots if the Village is granted
an exemption from the proposed islandwide builidng-height standard being offered in the revised Captiva Land Development Code.
A letter and postcard was mailed to every Village
property owner to be returned by April 1, 2011, and results
were discussed at the panel's April 12, 2011, public meeting.
