The Immokalee Area Master Plan is a component of the Collier County Comprehensive Plan. Originally adopted in 1987, the IAMP provides the guiding goals, objectives and policies for land use in the community. The Board of County Commissioners (BCC) directed staff to update the IAMP and the process began in January 2018. The review focused on complementary land uses, economic vitality, mobility and environmental sustainability.
The Immokalee restudy public participation process included extensive engagement through meetings at the Immokalee Community Redevelopment Agency Advisory Board, Immokalee MSTU Advisory Board, Immokalee Chamber of Commerce and six advertised public workshops. Public workshops were announced and advertised in English, Creole and Spanish.
The IAMP was approved by the Board of County Commissioner on May 14, 2019 for transmittal to Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO). DEO provided comments on June 21, 2019. The plan was approved by the Collier County Planning Commission on October 31, 2019 and was approved by the BCC for final adoption on December 10, 2019.
