Vanderbilt Beach affords a pleasant residential environment and extensive recreational resources. Our residents include many people who live and work in the area year round, retirees who live here  either full time or seasonally, and also the multitudes of visitors who flock here to enjoy the beautiful weather and our world-renowned beach and resorts. Vanderbilt Beach is now considered to be one of the finest communities in southwest Florida, if not the country.  The Vanderbilt Beach Residents Association is dedicated to preserving the quality of life that we all enjoy.

Message from the VBRA Board

Dear VBRA member:

Your VBRA Board Members are actively monitoring upcoming events that may impact our future here on Vanderbilt Beach and nearby areas. Please join us in keeping up with future issues at the County level and affecting the Vanderbilt Beach area, including the proposed One Naples project.

We are attaching Commissioner Andy Solis’s “Coffee with the Commissioner” invitation for January 16, 5:30-6:30 at the Collier County Library, Orange Blossom Road. We recommend signing up to receive Andy’s newsletters directly (email him at andy.solis@colliercountyfl.gov ). His periodic “Coffees” are very informative. This date is “sold out,” but they do have a wait list. Andy’s current newsletter includes an excellent recap of the One Naples project status, currently at the top of our radar.

The Collier County web site is CollierCountyFL.gov . Look under the Your Government, Board of County Commissioners, to find further information.

Very truly yours,
Your VBRA Board Members

Coffee with the Commissioner

Work on Vanderbilt Beach Road

Many of our members have been asking about the road work along Vanderbilt Beach Road from Hammock Oak west to Vanderbilt Drive.  This is from our Commissioner, Andy Solis:
“The project is the addition of bike lanes on either side of Vanderbilt Beach Road. There have been many requests for this. There are also fiber optic cables being buried on the south side. It is NOT a widening of Vanderbilt Beach Road to 4 lanes. Those rumors are not true. Please let everyone know.”

Neighborhood Zoning Change from C-3 to CPUD (Commercial Planned Unit Development) and more.

This is a PUD Rezone for the Lighthouse Inn CPUD to allow hotel and ancillary uses. This is a companion item to a SSGMPA Petition which will establish the Vanderbilt Gulf Shore Resort Subdistrict.
