David Lawrence Center, which has been providing mental health services to Collier County for about five decades, didn’t receive a positive recommendation from the Collier County Planning Commission last week for the location of its new behavioral health center. 

The proposed location for a 64,000-square-foot, 102-bed facility is on a county-owned 5.15-acre plot of land adjacent to David Lawrence Center on Golden Gate Parkway. The subdistrict that surrounds the center was approved for institutional uses such as care facilities, nursing homes and churches in 2007.
