Southwest Florida Counties Base Map 1-5-15A ULI Series: How Southwest Florida is Tackling Future Growth

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.
