The Rural Lands Stewardship Area Overlay is approximately 185,000 acres surrounding the Immokalee area. The original plan for this area was adopted in 2002. A 5-year restudy of the Overlay was completed in 2009, led by a citizen committee and resulting in several policy change recommendations. The current restudy effort will consider the previous committee’s recommendations, procure new data and analysis where needed, and determine if further changes will have positive results. New recommendations will be sought through public outreach and consensus.

Rural Lands Stewardship Area Overlay Plan

To date, the implementation of the Rural Land Stewardship Plan has protected over 50,000 acres of habitat, flow ways and agriculture, and directed growth to more sustainable town patterns of Ave Maria and the recently proposed Rural Lands West.
