At last month’s historic board meeting the topic of an old landscaping plan, created by Rick Lamb, was brought forth. It was also mentioned at the board’s January 31 meeting. Lamb was brought to Boca Grande more than five years ago by the Boca Grande Community Planning Panel. They spent $20,000 on the plan, which includes landscaping and parking options for Gilchrist Avenue.
Also, at the board’s January meeting one board member, Tim Seibert, started conversation about the plan when the topic of signage came up.
Because the topic was not on the board’s agenda last month, it was decided that a presentation with the material could be made at this month’s meeting.
According to Janet Miller with Lee County Department of Community Development, she wasn’t aware of the specifics of what would be brought up at Wednesday’s meeting, but that it was requested they add an agenda item called “Discussion about the Boca Grande Historic District” because of last month’s discussion.
Other items on the agenda include a Certificate of Appropriateness request for the rehabilitation and maintenance of Gasparilla Inn & Club cottages and the proposed construction of a new residence at 851 Palm Avenue.
