Florida promises a beautiful climate and quality of life, but pressures from the growth economy threaten to destroy this dream.  The Responsible Growth Management Coalition fosters and supports practices that help to ensure that Southwest Florida (SWFL) remains a desirable place to live for all citizens.  We advocate for sustainable development practices that link growth to appropriate infrastructure, minimize environmental impacts, permanently preserve public space, and provide a safe and accessible lifestyle.  We accomplish this through informed public participation, education, innovation, and litigation.  Working together we can protect and restore SWFL's quality of life.

Since 1988 , the RGMC has been a vocal proponent of sound growth management strategies and plans. Today, civic participation is more important than ever. Explore this site or join us to find out how you can help ensure a responsible future for Lee County.

The RGMC is a proud sponsor of the

Cela Tega Conference Series

There have been 5 conferences since 2008 and the website has lots of useful information to help you become more aware and involved on local matters.

Please help us encourage Lee Tran to adopt the pulseplan at www.abetterleetran.com by speaking in support of this proposal to the Lee County Commissioners and email the LeeTran director Robert Codie.

Keep the pressure on the Commissioners to put impact fee collections back to 100% (and keep the text about that)

Remember to vote and participate in local governance issues.
