Controversial Lehigh Acres housing project could be revived

Author: Mike Walcher

LEHIGH ACRES, Fla.- Developers are once again promoting a housing project that has proven controversial in the past.

After being on the back burner for about a year, they’re reviving plans for Bentley Crossings.

The project would bring many new homes and businesses to land northwest of the intersection of Gunnery and Buckingham Roads.

People who live and work near the property say they moved there because it’s not very populated. They don’t want hundreds of new homes, right next to them.

Others say they want more growth, and more people will mean more business.

Documents filed with Lee County show the owners are a limited liability corporation in Bonita Springs.
