Boca Grande is a coastal community comprised of Gasparilla Island and the surrounding islands at the mouth of Charlotte Harbor in Northwest Lee County. The community seeks to guard its unique way-of-life, delicate environment, historic character, and cultural gifts through its community planning and historic preservation projects. To protect its unique characteristics, Boca Grande has a number of community and historic planning efforts:
- Boca Grande Community Plan and Lee Plan Goal 22 allow future planning and development efforts to be done in a coordinated and consistent manner.
- Gasparilla Island Conservation District, which was established through an act of the State of Florida, protects the community’s fragile environment by limiting development densities.
- Boca Grande Historic Preservation Board is a local decision-making board that implements the Lee County Historic Ordinance, Lee County Land Development Code Chapter 22, by reviewing cases that affect historic-designated resources in the Boca Grande community.
