BABCOCK RANCH, Fla. (Sept. 15, 2020) – Bill Pinho has been named Director of Community Patrol at Babcock Ranch, America’s first solar-powered town located just northeast of Fort Myers on Babcock Ranch Road/State Road 31.
Pinho brings more than three decades of law enforcement experience with the City of Elizabeth Police Department in New Jersey, serving as Patrol Platoon Commander, Captain of Detectives Investigations Commander, and Office of the Chief of Police Internal Affairs Commander.
In his new role at Babcock Ranch, Pinho will create a patrol force for the town’s residential and retail community, head special event patrol operations, and serve as liaison with local law enforcement and public safety organizations.
“Bill shares our commitment to the Babcock Ranch vision and the importance of creating community partnerships,” said Syd Kitson, Chairman, and CEO of Babcock Ranch’s developer, Kitson & Partners. “His depth of experience and training expertise will be an asset in maintaining our safe environment and serving our new hometown.”
Babcock Ranch was created by Kitson & Partners with respect for the natural environment and the philosophy that smart growth and sustainability work hand in hand. Half of the town’s 18,000-acre footprint is set aside as greenways, parks, and expansive lakes, providing recreation and scenic backdrops for Babcock Ranch’s homes and the Founder’s Square downtown district.
Within Babcock Ranch’s seven welcoming neighborhoods, more than two dozen model and quick-delivery homes are now open or under construction by AR Homes by Arthur Rutenberg, Divco Custom Homes, Florida Lifestyle Homes, Fox Premier Builders, Lennar, Meritage Homes, Pulte Homes, Stock Classic Homes, and WCI. Many models are open for viewing daily.
