The original application for development targeted 158 acres of mangrove wetland and open water to build 252 multi-family units, 54 single-family units, and a 171-slip marina with a clubhouse and community pool. In addition to mangrove habitat destruction and water quality impacts from runoff, the project will impact a number of protected species that live in or utilize the area, including the Florida manatee, Smalltooth sawfish, and the ornate diamondback terrapin. SCCF will continue to track this project through the permit review process. The project is currently under zoning review by Lee County.
The Lee County zoning hearing on Eden Oak was continued until October 23,2019.
The applicant has requested their South Florida Water Management District Application be put on hold for a year.
