Here We Grow Again Series Part Four: The Future Development in Charlotte County
The good news – the economy is growing and population is on the rise. The unknown – is Southwest Florida properly positioned to accommodate the next wave of growth?
Join ULI Southwest Florida for the last program in a four part series as we evaluate the direction the region is moving to prepare for the increase in population. This program focuses on Charlotte County, which has taken a long range, progressive and innovative approach toward the planning for its future growth, with innovative programs, infrastructure and watershed planning, and a strong emphasis on environmental and economic sustainability.
Learn more about how the County is preparing for the future in this interactive session.
