Zoning Hearing Rescheduled
The Lee County Hearing Examiner has delayed the Sept. 21 zoning hearing for the Babcock Ranch-Lee County application. We will post a notification here when the hearing is rescheduled, and the county will provide public notice. Thank you.
Babcock Ranch is a new town being created by Kitson & Partners in Southwest Florida. Approximately 80 percent of the town’s 18,000 acres are located in Charlotte County, where approvals are in place and the first phase of construction is well underway. Applications are now being submitted for the Lee County portion of the property, which includes about 4,200 acres.
The proposed development plan for the Babcock Ranch lands in Lee County includes homes, commercial/town center uses, and a sports and entertainment district. Importantly, more than half of the total acreage is planned for nature preserves, with expansive conservation areas, scrubber marshes to enhance water quality, and restored flow ways.

About Babcock Ranch
Babcock Ranch is rooted in preservation. The 18,000-acre town is part of what made it possible for Florida to complete the largest preservation land purchase in state history and establish the 73,000-acre Babcock Ranch Preserve. The Master Plan, which provides for a total of 19,500 homes and 6 million square feet of community and commercial space, was approved in 2006. The town of Babcock Ranch is being constructed in phases and will ultimately be home to approximately 50,000 residents. A focus on ecology, sustainability, technology, transportation, education and health and wellness is aimed at providing a whole new way of living at Babcock Ranch and providing a new model for responsible, sustainable development.
