There is a critical issue now facing all of
us and the association desperately needs your input to shape the future of our
neighborhood. Do you want commercial uses inside our community boarders? That
very well may happen if we don’t have your input and support. Everyone should
plan on attending the annual meeting on March 5th.
There is an effort to change the zoning on
13.66 acres inside our neighborhood boundaries to a commercial use. Should this
effort succeed, the impact to traffic in and out of our neighborhood is likely
to dramatically increase, which could impact our quality of life and property
The board has been effective in the past
negotiating with developers, county commissioners and zoning officials to
maintain residential zoning inside our neighborhood. Without a unified voice
telling the commissioners we are against this kind of change, the pressure they
feel from these commercial interests may be more than they can resist.
If you would like to hear more about what your
neighborhood association is doing and about other threats to your neighborhood,
please come to the annual meeting on March 5th and get connected with your
neighborhood association. Mark Strain, the Collier County Planning Commission
Chairman, will be in attendance to present information on the Collier County
Growth Management Plans. We would like to see you there.
Most importantly, we need your
support! MAKE A DONATION!
Fill out the form
HERE and send in your
donation, or bring it with you to our annual meeting. Your contributions help to
fund expenses, projects, and legal fees to defend our neighborhood.
We thank the many homeowners who support our
continuing efforts to keep Oakes Estates a wonderful place to live, enjoy our
independence and lots of space, and raise our kids.
