Imagine Lee County with 600,000 more people and our roads with that many more cars. Imagine the increase in taxes, impact fees, tolls and the cost of doing business just to pay to build and maintain all those roads.

Imagine the destruction that a vast array of new roads will cause to the natural environment, one of the main reasons that people choose to relocate their businesses and families here. Imagine a quality of life harmed each day by excess pollution and traffic congestion.

Each of us can play an active role in changing these outcomes into something much better—an attractive, enduring Lee County where people of all walks of life enjoy a comfortable sense of place.

Reconnecting Lee is a group that advocates for New Urbanist concepts, including transit-oriented design for Lee County’s emerging urban centers. 

Creative thinking can bring a more prosperous tomorrow. We invite you to participate in our quest for workable solutions to create a better Lee County. Together, we can make a difference. You can learn more about our organization here.
