On September 5, 2018 the Bonita Springs City Council adopted regulations for Neighborhood Meetings. The purpose of a neighborhood meeting is to educate occupants and owners of nearby lands about the proposed development and application, receive comments, address concerns about the development proposal, and resolve conflicts and outstanding issues, where possible.
Neighborhood meetings are mandatory for applications for a future land use map amendment, rezoning, and special exception. Neighborhood meetings are optional for all other applications. Applicants are required to conduct a neighborhood meeting prior to filing its application with the city and a second neighborhood meeting within 30 days after the city has deemed the application to be sufficient.
