The Planning & Zoning Board conducted a public hearing for amendments to the Comprehensive Plan pertaining to the 10-year water supply facilities work plan and wetlands at their meeting on June 28.
Florida Statutes require that a regional water supply plan be conducted within 18 months following the South Florida Water Management District plan update.
Johnson Engineering reviewed the water supply from Lee County Utilities and Bonita Springs Utilities and determined there will be an adequate supply for the Village of Estero for the next ten years (2030). (Work Plan)
There was also an amendment to modify and clarify wetland language in reference to the Comprehensive Plan challenge.
The Board voted to recommend Council transmit both of these amendments to the state for approval.
