Residents along the Burnt Store Corridor in Charlotte County are closer to having at least some of their needs for nearby services and amenities. 

After hearing concerns from numerous residents of the corridor communities, county staff members were instructed by the Board of County Commissioners to hire a consultant to coordinate a workshop that will be open to the public. In addition, Charlotte County Community Development launched a new webpage dedicated to the Burnt Store Area Plan.
