The Lee County Conservation Land Acquisition and Stewardship Advisory Committee (CLASAC) met July 17 where it was confirmed that the county has made an offer to the owner of the Eden Oak property for the County’s Conservation 20/20 program. The property was nominated in late 2019 for the program.
Its nomination process is running parallel to the County Zoning change requested by the owner. The final county staff/applicant hearing will take place on December 11.
Eden Oak was not on the CLASAC agenda this month and there was no new information presented, but the status of the late June County offer to the property owner was confirmed and staff stated that the negotiations were ongoing. No further information is currently available on the offer.
If negotiations go smoothly, there may be an Eden Oak negotiation update at the next CLASAC meeting scheduled for Wednesday, August 19. SCCF is actively monitoring this program and will send out any updates.
