Planning June Event
Months after a group seeking the pros and cons of incorporation for Lehigh Acres that met at Lehigh Senior High School. Its moderator, Alex Dworzanski, said that while the group has not formally met yet to elect an executive director or board, residents of Lehigh Acres are urged to expect a second meeting sometime June.
Dworzanski moderated the first meeting on March 1, a Saturday morning at Leigh Senior High School, where some 90 people turned out.
Dworzanski in a written said, We were not there to establish a group to push for incorporation. We have begun a discussion about the future of Lehigh Acres and where do we want to go. Incorporation could be something we decide or we could decide to follow another path. I think the goal of all the residents of Lehigh is to make Lehigh Acres viable and this is a start. Our group will look into what Lehigh Acres’ future should be.
Dworzanski noted that at the next meeting in June, the date to be announced, the public will again be asked to attend.
According to Diane Turrill, there are so far eight committees and that several people have signed up. But more people can sign up to help up to seek the future of Lehigh Acres.
Turrill noted that of the committees, anyone who is interested in joining now, before the next meeting, can contact her at 239-357-6988.
The committees include:
- A Steering Committee which would include the chairmen of all the other committees.
- Feasibility study
- City finance and budget study
- City services
- Special taxing district study
- Community and public relations
- Boundary study
