Lehigh Acres is one of the largest residential communities in Lee County, as well as in the entire state of Florida. Located in the County’s east central area, Lehigh Acres is a 96-square-mile, pre-platted residential community comprised of mostly quarter-acre and half-acre single-family lots. In order to help provide a better balance of land uses, the community planning efforts in Lehigh Acres are focused at enabling compatible commercial corridors and mixed-use centers while supporting continued viability of the community’s residential neighborhoods. In order to accomplish these objectives, Lehigh Acres is actively engaged in planning activities:

  • Lehigh Acres Community Plan and Lee Plan Goal 32 address enhancing the largely single-use, pre-platted residential areas with vibrant neighborhoods, commercial and employment centers, mixed-use nodes, and active parks and public spaces.
  • Lehigh Acres Land Development Code (Chapter 33, Article V) addresses community-wide development standards such as landscape design, street numbering, duplex developments, and commercial corridor transportation needs.
  • Lehigh Acres Mixed-Use Centers. The Lehigh Acres Town Center project explores plans for three urban, mixed-use centers within the community. The three locations are Downtown Lehigh Acres along Homestead Road south of Beth Stacey Boulevard, a community center along Homestead Road north of Milwaukee Boulevard, and a neighborhood center along Joel Boulevard by the Admiral Lehigh Golf Club. This is an active community planning project.
