County to negotiate purchase of two properties for Conservation 20/20

By Staff | Sep 19, 2023

The Lee Board of County Commissioners voted Tuesday to negotiate for the purchase of two parcels totaling more than 48 acres for the Conservation 20/20 program.

The parcels:

• 40.5 acres in North Fort Myers along the northern bank of the Caloosahatchee River, south of Hancock Bridge Parkway and east of Moody Road

• 7.7 acres south of Summerlin Road and surrounded on three sides by Estero Bay Preserve State Park

Both parcels were unanimously recommended for purchase by the Conservation 20/20 Land Acquisition and Stewardship Advisory Committee.

Any negotiated terms will be returned to the board for consideration.

Conservation 20/20 is Lee County’s land acquisition and management program, through which more than 31,000 acres of conservation land is protected in Lee County.
