COLLIER COUNTY, Fla. - After voting it down five months ago, Collier County commissioners will revisit proposed changes to Immokalee's Master Plan.
The suggested revisions, which are spearheaded by the Immokalee Community Redevelopment Agency, took more than 10 years and a half-million dollars to develop.
In December, the plan did not get the needed approval from commissioners, but the CRA petitioned the board to reconsider.
At Tuesday's board meeting, residents on both sides showed up to voice their opinions.
Some against the proposed amendments say the issue has dragged on too long, and does not need to be revived.
Others say failing to approve the changes will cause the local economy to be stagnant.
Commissioners will meet with residents in Immokalee June 18th to discuss the issue and get public input. That meeting takes place at 6 p.m. at Immokalee High School.
