RAPTOR BAY REZONING & TOWER THREAT IS BACK: YOU ARE NEEDED!

Raptor Bay Public Information Meeting
Monday, June 27, 2016 at 5:30 p.m.

at the Living Waters Church, 22100 S. Tamiami Trail, Estero, FL 33928

 WCI is back once again with a revised application to build four 20-story towers over 2 stories of parking (200+ feet tall) etc.  WCI is now trying to accomplish this under the Lee County Plan after their application was rejected using the regulations of Bonita Springs earlier this year. This is a dramatic deviation from the current zoning limit of 75 feet for maximum height.

There will be no need to provide expert testimony at this “informational” meeting, however you may wish to listen and say nothing … or listen and indicate your objection to the nature of this development.

This is our home and it is our property values and the enjoyment of our amenities that we are defending and protecting.  WCI has a lot at stake but we have more at stake. We expect the media will be there and we want to have as many residents attend as possible – a show of strength and opposition, if you will.

If you haven’t seen the complete filing by WCI for the development of the Raptor Bay property, click here to see document.  WCI clearly intends to annex multiple properties into PLCA. There are legal protections to annexation (in our Settlement Agreement and Florida Statutes) but they will only protect us if our Board and homeowners act to protect our community.

It is no accident that this is happening over the summer.  We need to show WCI that we can stay involved even from a distance by writing emails to the City Council, the PLCA Board,  by supporting the Residents for a Better Community (RBC) legal fund and keeping up with the information as it changes over the summer.   

Those who cannot attend … please contact the City of Bonita Springs and our PLCA Board Members to voice your objections to this overreach by a predatory developer, WCI
