Join us for an evening with Mr. Syd Kitson, President and CEO of Kitson & Partners. Mr. Kitson will share his plans to build a new solar-powered city called Babcock Ranch in Southwest Florida. In 2006, Kitson completed the historic purchase of the Babcock Ranch which encompasses more than 92,000 acres. Over 80% of the original land purchase, some 73,000 acres within Charlotte and Lee counties, has been preserved by the State of Florida and Lee County, in the largest single land preservation agreement in the state’s history. On the remaining land, Kitson & Partners will build an extraordinary, sustainable, environmentally-friendly green community where residents will live, work, learn and play amidst the natural splendor of Florida’s undeveloped wilderness. Babcock Ranch is an exceptional example of environmental preservation and responsible growth. Thank you to Florida Crystals Corporation for their generous sponsorship of this informative evening featuring Syd Kitson.
