Development to begin soon.
Laura Layden | Naples Daily News
A new town planned for rural Collier County has reached a pivotal moment.
In late June, county commissioners quietly signed off on the new town that’s been years in the making.
The creation of the town, known as Big Cypress, appeared on the board’s summary agenda, reserved for noncontroversial matters.
One frustrated environmentalist spoke against the development before it came to a swift vote.
The town – planned by Collier Enterprises – won final approval along with three unrelated, undisputed items, in one fell swoop, at a county commission meeting June 27.
A town and two villages
The town will connect two new villages planned by Collier Enterprises, known as Rivergrass and Bellmar. It will replace the developer’s third approved village, Longwater, with the addition of roughly 544 acres to its borders.
Centered in and around the two villages, the town will span more than 1,544 acres, off Oil Well Road, east of Golden Gate Estates.
