Lower Matecumbe Key


​Lower Matecumbe Comprehensive Planning Effort

In 1989, Monroe County had public meetings on our island and hired a planning consultant to develop a long term vision for Lower Matecumbe.  Typically over 50 residents participated in a series of meetings.  In the end, not satisfied with the resulting recommendations from the consultant, LMKA formed their own committee and wrote their own plan!  The LMKA plan was the plan that was approved by the County as part of their comprehensive planning process! 

Below is the "humorous" editorial from the November 8, 1989 Keynoter commending the residents of our island.
