Design of Lehigh’s GS 10 parcel begins | News, Sports, Jobs
The Lehigh Acres Municipal Services Improvement District awarded the GS 10 design contract to AIM Engineering.
The company will play a key role in creating a dual water protection / recreation area approximately 640 acres off Joel Blvd. and is located on the northeast side of Lehigh Acres.
According to District Manager David Lindsay, planning has already started.
“The goal is to have 60 percent of the project ready by the end of September 2021. The Lee County Commissioner’s goals are to create something similar to Lakes Park in Fort Myers. Commissioner Frank Mann remains heavily involved in this project and wants to create an East Lake Park here in Lehigh that residents can enjoy. “ said Lindsay. “LAMSID would oversee the waterways and the mitigation portion of the project, and the county would oversee the park and trails.”
The GS 10 parcel purchased by Lee County as part of the 20/20 Land Conservation Program will be used by the Lehigh Acres Municipal Improvement District to build a water storage and purification operation in Lehigh Acres.
Lee County Parks and Recreation Director Jesse Lavender said in a previous interview that the proposed East Lake Park will feature bridges, kayaking, fishing, hiking, and bird watching, much like Lakes Park.
LAMSID commissioners also approved Resolution 2021-06 on Aug. 16, a letter of intent with the US Home Corporation approving the creation of a community development district within the Savanna Lakes Project and authorizing the landowner’s consent to run.
“A future project called Savannah Lakes is being built by Lennar Homes. The project comprises 1,600 apartments. Lee County needed access to their community development district. For the developer, a CDD offers the opportunity to borrow money for infrastructure improvements such as roads, roads, utilities, etc. “ said Lindsay.
Permits have also been granted for Comcast Cable Aerial Crossing over the Butterfly Canal (46-35-6).
AND PER # 21-06, Caywood Villas – 1430-1440 Caywood Cir. SE, an upcoming website that will feature one and two story villas in front of Beth Stacey.
The LAMSID board of directors heard a request from a property owner in Lehigh Acres. Frank Muscarella applied for a letter to use a district right of way.
“Mr. Muscarella had to remodel a shed on a right of way in the county. He needed a letter from us to say it was okay to be on our property. The board voted to give him a portion of this Right of way to sell at market value. “ said Lindsay.
The Lehigh Acres Municipal Services Improvement District holds its regular meeting on the third Monday of each month in its Barrett Room at 601 East County Lane Lehigh Acres, FL 33936. The session is open to the general public.
