Community Action Advisory Committee Appointment
Membership vote on appointment of GPICA Board Member Sue Dahod to the Community Action Advisory (CAA) Committee to the Lee County Board of County Commissioners (BoCC).
- The CAA provides a forum for Lee County residents’ input and involvement in the design and delivery of services that impact the quality of life in their community. The CAA also makes recommendations to the BoCC regarding funding applications. The Advisory Committee comes under the purview of Lee County Human and Veteran Services.
We’ve invited Lee County representatives to join us at our meeting tomorrow to cover several topics of interest to Pine Islanders. Representatives will include:
- District 1 Commissioner Kevin Ruane
- Assistant County Manager Marc Mora
- Director of Community Development Mikki Rozdolski
- Director Randy Cerchie and Deputy Director Rob Price from the Lee County Department of Transportation.
The topics we’ve asked them to address include:
- The latest changes to the Lee County Land Development code, as they pertain to Pine Island/Matlacha and how we might better address the issue of old development orders (i.e. orders that were approved prior to the implementation of the Pine Island Plan that have received numerous extensions when it might appear that ongoing work is not being conducted in furtherance of the development.)
- Updates on Pine Island Road repairs through Matlacha
- The State’s funding of a traffic study — NOT requested by Lee County staff — for a traffic circle at the current four-way stop.
- An update on Resilient Lee, including the CDBG block-grant funding and allocations and how Pine Island might benefit.
- There will also be time for additional Q&A from attendees.
