The town Hall meeting venue is being sponsored by the Community Council and the Kiwanis Club of Lehigh Acres to inform the residents of what may be needed in order to incorporate the community of Lehigh Acres. The first meeting will be informational with speakers addressing what the state and county governments will require before voters can decide on incorporation to take place.
