Residents in unincorporated Collier County are upset over plans to build a more than 400-unit apartment complex and shopping center near them.
They say they moved to Golden Gate Estates to escape the traffic but adding this proposed complex will cause congestion and crashes.
More than 1,000 people have signed a petition created by Estates resident Chad Everett in opposition to a proposal to build an apartment complex on the Randall Curve property near Immokalee Road and Randall Boulevard.
William McDaniel, the county commissioner representing that area, said he knows there’s a large amount of traffic near that intersection, but he said the county can’t legally stop a property owner from using land simply because the area is congested.
Collier commissioners are set to potentially vote on the Golden Gate Estates plan at its next meeting on Oct. 26, WINK News reports.
