Open Agenda

Many questions came from the floor regarding the recently released Immokalee Road Corridor Study. Several people expressed great concern around the suggestion in that study that a follow-up study is considered to the possible benefits from connecting the Oakes Neighborhood lanes to Logan Boulevard. Many property owners are also concerned about the intersection at Spanish Oaks and Oakes Boulevard. There continue to be accidents and dangerous encounters with the volume of traffic that is passing through that area.

Adjournment: A motion to adjourn was duly approved at 8:08 pm.

Respectfully submitted by Tom Ellis
