Florida development history was made last weekend at Babcock Ranch in southeastern Charlotte County.
In a scene that was reminiscent of the real estate promotional events of the 1920s Florida Land Boom, about 20,000 people attended the two-day Founders Fest event, which gave the public its first look at the first buildings and model homes in the “solar-powered town.”
On Saturday, traffic clogged the road to Fort Myers, 20 miles distant, and visitors came from as far as Naples and Sarasota, said developer Syd Kitson of Kitson & Partners.
“People care” about development with sustainability as a core principle, Kitson said. A 400-acre photovoltaic farm run by FPL will supply more power than the city uses.
