Council's Corner: Bowling event to raise funds for feasibility study

July 26, 2017

Fundraising has begun for the feasibility study and we hope our community will participate in a fun evening of bowling on Aug. 19 at 5 p.m. at Bowland Lehigh, at 1244 Business Way.

Whether you're a new bowler or an experienced bowler, you have a chance to win cash prizes. For more information about the event or to register, contact Bowland at 239-369-5817.

Committees have been formed for Incorporate Lehigh Inc. If you want to become a member of one of the committees, contact president Joan Cunningham at:

She will be happy to provide you with a list of the committees and a description of the goals they will accomplish.

The beautification of Lehigh Acres is a major concern of many Lehigh residents.

Lee County Code Enforcement has seven code enforcement officers working in Lehigh. During April, May and June, there were a total of 6,631 code violations initiated by residents and officers.

For information on reporting a code violation, visit:

Code enforcement will send a letter to the property owner, who is given 15 days to cure the problem. Some of the most common violations are overgrown landscaping and unlicensed vehicles.

The Lee County Sheriff's Office also handles code violation concerns and works closely with Code Enforcement to make sure violations are properly handled by property owners. A rental property violation is the owner's responsibility; they must contact their tenants to have the violation rectified.

As residents, we can do our part by informing Code Enforcement of violations.

Auto theft is also a major concern within the community. The Lee County Sheriff's Office suggests locking your car doors every time you leave your car. Don't leave your keys or valuables in the car.

The crime rate in Lehigh Acres would drop significantly if we, the people, don't leave our cars unlocked.

During the rainy season, the Lee County Sheriff's Office is encouraging residents to drive with their lights on during rain, to drive very carefully and to avoid the large puddles of water on the roadways to avoid hydroplaning and splashing the car next to you so badly it blocks their vision of the roadway.

Everyone should remember: "The life you save, may be your own."

The Lehigh Acres Community Council serves as the voice for unincorporated Lehigh Acres.

Meetings are held the third Monday of each month at 6:30 p.m. in the meeting room at the LCSO East District substation, at 1301 Homestead Road N.
