The Captiva Plan

The Captiva portion of the Lee Plan -- the Lee County Comprehensive Land Use plan -- was first adopted in 2003 and amended in 2005 and 2007. It regulates land use and zoning on the island by addressing issues specific to Captiva, and is the basis for the county (and Captiva) Land Development Code currently under review.

 

Captiva Plan update:

The Community Panel is currently reviewing language for possible inclusion in the Plan. We urge all Captivans to review this language (available here) and either share your comments at an upcoming panel meeting or email your comments to the panel at captivacommunitypanel@gmail.com
