Preserve Management Plans

Each property purchased by Conservation Collier is required to have its own management plan. An Interim Management Plan is developed first with a Final Management Plan developed 2 years later.   Interim Management Plans are concerned with basic items like removal of invasive exotics and trash, establishing site security, developing management partnerships and planning for public access. Final Management Plans are more comprehensive and include  elements such as restoration plans, mitigation potential and further define what public access amenities will be provided.  Final Management Plans are updated every 5 years.

All management plans start with a draft reviewed by the Conservation Collier Land Acquisition Advisory Committee (CCLAAC) and the Board of County Commissioners (BCC). These are the two points where public input can occur. For a new Land Management Plan (LMP), or when there are significant changes to an existing LMP, a public meeting with neighbors is scheduled.  Check the Meetings and Schedules page to view agendas for the CCLAAC or call program staff at 239-252-2961 to check the status of management plans. Public comment and participation are invited and welcome!

Copies of drafts and completed Final Management Plans are provided below.  A hard copy of each completed plan is also available for public review at the Parks and Natural Resources Building, Golden Gate Community Park, 3300 Santa Barbara Blvd., Naples. 

Your input is always sought and valued. 

If you cannot be at public meetings, but wish to comment, please send your comment via e-mail to
