The Collier County Commission approved a new residential and commercial development Tuesday at the intersection of Immokalee Road and Collier Boulevard.

The project, slated for the former Pelican Nursery site, is slated to include up to 400 multi-family homes or town homes and 270,000 square feet of commercial space. 

Commissioners also laid the groundwork for the construction of an overpass at the Immokalee Road and Collier Boulevard intersection. Long-range transportation plans suggest such an overpass would be needed by 2035.

Commissioners approved the development plans unanimously, capping a series of approvals by county boards.

After the initial plan encountered criticism from nearby residents, developers downsized it, eliminating a planned hotel and reducing its commercial space by 100,000 square feet.

The developers, which include Barron Collier Companies and Metro Commercial, also agreed to maintain a 105-foot setback between the existing residential properties and the new development.

Robert Pritt, an attorney representing the Tuscany Cove neighborhood, said Tuesday that nearby residents and the developer had reached a compromise. 

“Although we started out at odds with the developer … we were able to work that out,” Pritt said.

During the meeting, some concerns about traffic and the closeness of the development to neighboring homes remained among some nearby residents.

Connie Walters, a Tuscany Cove resident, said the development should not be allowed to disrupt the lives of current residents.

"I'm not against growth and development, but I do want it to be responsible," Walters said.

Commissioner Penny Taylor, among others, asked the developer to consider additional buffering measures between the development and existing residential areas.

To address concerns about the spread of light and noise from the development to other residential areas, developers have agreed to implement the increased setback, plant additional vegetation and add a 6-foot tall vinyl slatted fence.
