The Greater Pine Island Civic Association’s intent is to provide all the Information possible, and to answer all questions, related to the idea of incorporating.
On Sept. 1, 2017, GPICA submitted straw poll results, draft charter, feasibility study (and SWOT analysis) and voting district boundaries to the Office of the House Clerk. They were preliminary drafts submitted for review and correction.
These were created for the State of Florida’s review and comments, and to begin to gain the support of our Southwest Florida Legislative Delegation to sponsor a bill for incorporation of Pine Island.
These documents are not final and have not been officially submitted to the state. Initial discussion with members of our legislative delegation indicate that they won’t support incorporation until the lawsuit over the annexation of land in Matlacha by Cape Coral has been resolved. That lawsuit was brought by the Matlacha Civic Association. Please contact them for additional information.
