Immokalee Construction projects moving along on schedule.

Immokalee Construction projects moving along on schedule. Two major street projects are moving on - or ahead of - schedule in Immokalee.  The storm water drainage project at the western end of Immokalee Drive and the sidewalk construction project on Colorado Avenue will, when completed, make Immokalee a much drier and safer community.  The larger of two projects is the $2.1 million storm water drainage system, sidewalks and roadway improvements to Immokalee Drive, which began at North 16th Street and moved to the west.

Florida Legislature should work to save Enterprise Zones, including Immokalee's Immokalee’s Enterprise Zone – along with Florida’s other 64 Enterprise Zones – is under a severe threat again in the Florida Legislature.  Revived in 2005 and set to sunset at the end of 2015, unless the Legislature acts to save them, Enterprise Zones offer the most cost-effective program in the Sunshine State for job creation, entrepreneurial encouragement and a ticket out of poverty for small businesses seeking to find a firm financial footing in today’s marketplace.  In Immokalee alone, its Enterprise Zone has provided over $200,000 in tax incentives and other assistance to nearly 20 businesses over the past decade.  House Bill 903, filed by Florida State Rep.
