Our next meeting is SATURDAY, JUNE 16th at 11 a.m. at the Rhythm House. Interested in helping our group take action? Join us for our next Leadership Meeting Saturday June 2nd at 11 a.m.
This is a group for those affected by the Island Park Neighborhood Floods on 8/26 and 9/10/2017. Our purpose is to pressure Lee County for a SOLUTION to these floods and better water management for our neighborhood – and to be a central source of information between Lee County, other Agencies, and the Citizens of Island Park.
Lee County is responsible for maintenance of our roads and drainage systems. Although Lee County has taken some action on swale maintenace, we are (still) asking for an investigation and real answers to what happened,
and a plan going forward.
Decades without maintenance of our drainage systems, or planning for development, resulted in this man-made disaster for the Island Park community. We demand a response and a plan going forward from Lee County.
We know that Island Park was different. We flooded twice. There are theories relating to Ten Mile Canal failing and the Airport sending water gushing into our Old 41 Businesses and into our Neighborhoods. We (still) demand answers from Lee County officials and an investigation.
Island Park was included in the South Fort Myers study by Johnson Engineering completed April 2018. We are (still) looking for answers, especially relating to deveopment, the Ten Mile Canal, and the upwater systems that drain under US41 and flow past our Island Park penninsula.
Prior to the storms, maintnence was behind in our neighborhoods. Lee County has taken some action on our swales, but we are asking for a report other other improvements made to our Island Park roadways and drainage systems. Are we ready for the next rainy season?
If you haven't already done so, please fill-out the membership form and mail it to us. We need this for all "official" PAC members, as one of our important points is the strength and breadth of our members for political reasons. Yes, it's best if you are a registered voter -- but we welcome everyone who is concerned for Island Park.
Cecil Pendergrass (Dist 2) represents our Old 41 Business District and Larry Kiker (Dist 3) represents the residential neighborhoods along Island Park Road. However, our issues -- and votes -- count for all five (5) members of the Lee County Commission.
Use the attached "IPC Registration Form" to join our Group. Stand by our side and FIGHT THE FLOODS along with us!
