Road Widening in Golden Gate Estates

No winner in fund debate  

A New Perspective

By Russell Tuff, Publisher
December 1, 2005

Relief is within sight for residents living in the Golden Gate Estates area. In the next five years, Immokalee Road will finally be widened to six lanes to Oil Well Road. The project started as four lanes and the county realized six were needed.

On the county’s five-year plan posted on its transportation website, Oil Well Road will be six-laned east to the town of Ave Maria and then north to the city of Immokalee. During Tuesday’s public meeting, the 30-percent design showed four lanes to Everglades Boulevard and then possibly six lanes east of Everglades.

North of Oil Well, Immokalee will be a four-laned road all of the way into the Immokalee city area.

According to the website, Vanderbilt Beach Road will be four-laned east of Collier Boulevard and remain four lanes to Wilson Boulevard and then north to Immokalee Road.

More relief is in sight as commercial centers have been given the go-ahead to proceed. This will provide nearby shopping and relieve over-stressed roadways.

Tax Consequences of Flipping Real Estate

Picayune Strand to be New Wetlands Mitigation Area for Golden Gate Estates

A new wetland mitigation plan was approved on Sept. 30, 2005, in which lot owners in Golden Gate Estates can build on wetlands in return for paying to help preserve land in Picayune Strand State Forest. The plan is to remove non-native vegetation such as melaleuca and Brazilian pepper, pay for long-term upkeep, and buy more land for preservation. Besides costing less than mitigation credits in other parts of Southwest Florida, ROMAs in Picayune Strand could provide mitigation credits for Golden Gate Estates for another 20 or 30 years.
