In terms of amenities and infrastructure, how should the city be planning and budgeting for growth in the north Cape?
Safety is my first concern. Making sure our first responders are staffed for population growth is critical. Where there is growth, crime is not far behind. The City must prioritize infrastructure in North Cape…specifically, water, drainage, and roads. As vacant lots are built-out, well-water homes not yet added to the city water will outpace our capacity to provide those services. I will get the Parks GO Bond delays under control. Festival, Crystal Lake, Tropicana and Lake Meade parks are all significantly late and over budget. I will work with Lee County to add new schools (including an aquatic facility at a school), a new hospital, and expand LeeTran bus routes. Finally, I applaud the initiatives of the Northwest Neighborhood Association to ensure Burnt Store Road does not become another Del Prado.
