COUNTY PRIORITIES FOR 2019
The Collier Citizens Council recently interviewed the Collier County Commissioners to determine their priorities for 2019 and, in turn, to help establish the basis for CCC projects.
Two issues stood out, topping the list of matters to be addressed.
Water Quality was a common concern, mirroring resident complaints about the toxic algae and red tide that plagued the community for much of 2018.
Growth Management was widely mentioned, recognizing the rural lands planning and infrastructure changes that will be needed to support growth in the years ahead.
Further down the list were Economic Development (more diversity sought) and Mental Health/Addiction Issues (more treatment and post-treatment housing needed).
