An update on community redevelopment and the stormwater mitigation bank will be presented by Leigh Scrabis, Executive Director of Fort Myers Community Redevelopment Agency, and Katherine English, partner at Pavese Law Firm. Sponsored by Kimley-Horn. REG
Initiatives to encourage infill development and redevelopment in Fort Myers will be explained by Leigh Scrabis, Executive Director of the Fort Myers Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA), and Katherine English, partner at Pavese Law Firm, at the Real Estate Investment Society’s (REIS) April 10th luncheon meeting.
The Fort Myers Community Redevelopment Agency oversees 14 redevelopment districts and is guiding new land use plans and development codes for the River District, adjacent Midtown Area and MLK Corridor. Scrabis and English will also explain how the CRA worked with the City on a stormwater retrofit project at the City's golf course, building additional water treatment volume into the existing system and creating a stormwater mitigation bank that developers could use instead of building onsite treatment systems. The program uses offsite credits that can be sold or given to developers as an incentive to increase private investment and property values. It is the first municipal offsite credit bank ever permitted by the South Florida Water Management District and the nutrient-removal system improves the impaired water body it feeds, while spurring urban infill and redevelopment. Following the presentation, Scrabis and English will respond to questions of specific interest to the real estate investment and development industry.
Leigh Scrabis has been with the Fort Myers Community Redevelopment Agency since 2004 and executive director since 2016. She earned an engineering degree at University of Florida and spent 8 years in the financial industry. Katherine English joined Pavese Law firm in 1994 and became a partner in 2000. Her practice concentrates on agricultural, environmental and land use law, with an emphasis on protecting entitlements for larger properties.
The meeting is sponsored by Kimley-Horn and will begin promptly at 11:45 a.m. on Tuesday, April 10th in the Pelican Preserve Clubhouse, on Treeline Avenue at Colonial Boulevard, one mile east of I-75 exit 136 in Fort Myers. Admission is $30.00 for members and $40.00 for guests, which includes lunch. Reservations are required by April 5th. REGISTRATION IS CLOSED.
