A Kick-Off meeting and Site Visit with Johnson’s design team and CRA Staff was held on 9.26.22. Johnson scheduled three Public Meetings. Meeting #1 was held on 11.16.22 at 9AM with the Joint CRA & MSTU Advisory Boards and the Public to develop a wish list to utilize on the design of the conceptual plans.
Public Meeting #2 for the community was held on 2.15.23 at 5PM at CareerSource, 750 S. 5th Street, Immokalee. Johnson gathered data and input from the community. The Community reviewed the Meeting #2 Presentation and completed a Comment Card . Johnson provided minutes of Public Meeting #2 to the Immokalee CRA on 3.11.23.
Johnson will incorporate the Public comments into the design concept that was presented at the Joint CRA & MSTU Hybrid Public Meeting on 3.15.23 at 9AM at CareerSource. This was the third Public Meeting by Johnson with the Community. Johnson reviewed options for the design. A Survey was shared at the meeting for the selection of (1) hardscape options for sidewalks and roadway accents at the crosswalks on 1stand 9th, (2) furnishing options for benches, trash receptacles, bike racks and planters, (3) additional amenities for shade structures, (4) a mid-block crossing control fence, and (5) landscape improvements. The Community’s participation is strongly desired to complete the Survey by making selections for the different options. Surveys are available on this website or contact the Immokalee CRA’s Office at 239-867-0025. The final design plans should be completed late summer or early fall.
