The Community Council of Lehigh Acres was formed in 1968 by 20 concerned citizens as the organization in the community to advance the welfare of unincorporated Lehigh Acres.

Today it is composed of 41 members (21 elected members from Lehigh Acres and 20 appointed members from various civic, social, industry and government agencies serving Lehigh Acres). The Council meets monthly (third Monday at 6:30 p.m.) at Living Waters Christian Fellowship Church at 500 N. Sunshine Blvd. (next to Doc's Collision north of Lee Blvd.)

The public is welcome to attend and voice any concerns regarding issues affecting the Lehigh Acres Community.

"Our mission is to partner with the citizens and governing agencies within Lee County Florida to make Lehigh Acres a great place to live and work," Makowski said.

The Council has sponsored Politics in the Park and Candidate Forums. It advocates for code enforcement, road improvements, parks, and other community services. The Council will have a role in local recommendation of new projects as part of the Lehigh Acres Comprehensive Plan process. All county agencies that serve Lehigh are represented on the Council.

The Council is funded by Friends of the Council.
