Lee County Industrial Development Authority
This seven-member board appointed by the Lee County Commissioners and staffed by the Lee County Economic Development Office is tasked with fostering industrial and business development, and encouraging both change to local and relocating companies to explore the use of Industrial Development Revenue Bonds (IDRBs) to finance their projects.
The Lee County Industrial Development Authority (IDA) serves as the initial entry point into the Industrial Development Bond application process. The IDA also reviews incentive applications for local approval of the Lee County Job Opportunity Program. The board was established in 1975, under Part III of Chapter 159 of the Florida Statutes, and each Industrial Development Authority board member is appointed to a four-year term.
