The Collier County Planning Commission is meeting at 9am Thursday about Bellmar Village, a planned development in Eastern Collier County.

The Conservancy of Southwest Florida worries the development is in the midst of prime panther habitat. The Conservancy also has concerns that the project does not meet the RLSA’s requirements for fiscal neutrality, other endangered species’ protections, and smart growth. Audubon Florida does not share these same concerns.

The Collier County Planning Commission will meet on Thursday, April 15, at 9:00 a.m. at the Board of County Commissioners Chambers, third floor, Collier County Government Center, 3299 Tamiami Trail E., Naples, Florida. The meeting will be broadcast live with closed captioning on Collier Television channel 97/98 and via live streaming atcolliercountyfl.gov. The agenda will be available on the Collier County Government website athttp://colliercountyfl.iqm2.com/Citizens/default.aspx
