The Burnt Store Corridor Coalition (BSCC) represents over 10,000 citizens living along Burnt Store Road in southern Charlotte County and northern
The coalition is aligned with a state movement seeking to bring various Stakeholders and community leaders together to work cooperatively to address community concerns. The BSCC stands in opposition of any policies or projects which we feel will endanger our wildlife, devastate our infrastructure, and make our communities unsafe.
The pace of growth along the corridor presents many challenges and calls for proactive initiatives to ensure our quality of life is preserved. If we were to allow haphazard growth, we put our communities at risk and place our future in the hands of outside developers. As a solution, we turned to the work done by the Burnt Store Improvement Initiative in 2005. That coalition of community advocates helped shape what is now referred to as the Burnt Store Area Plan. The plan represented a collaboration of elected officials, county administrators, environmental leaders, and residents to create what would become a master plan for the area. Our current challenges include the development of 5100 units from Notre Dame Ave to the Lee County line and the development south of Burnt Store Marina to the Cape Coral line.
This does not include the hundreds of homes being built in existing communities.
