Amberton Compactor Project


Dear Fairway Preserve Association member:

As you are aware a formal application has been submitted to Collier County seeking approval of an Insubstantial Change to a PUD (PDI) for the following described property:

PETITION NO. PDI-PL20200000231 – Request for an insubstantial change to Ordinance Number 00-37, as amended, the Olde Cypress Planned Unit Development (PUD), to allow for a deviation from LDC Section 4.06.02.C which requires a 10-foot Type A Buffer where multi-family use abuts multi-family use to instead allow a one-foot buffer yard only in the area where the compactor enclosure and approach apron will be located at 8074 Dancing Wind Lane within the Amberton Townhomes Development. The subject property is in the southeast portion of the PUD on the north side of Immokalee Road, approximately 300 feet west of Nursey Lane, in Section 22, Township 48 South, Range 26 East, Collier County, Florida, consisting of 28.48± acres.

This matter was heard by a Hearing Examiner (HEX) on Thursday July 24th, 2021 in the Growth Management Department of Collier County. Multiple members of the board, the Associations attorney as well as association management appeared at this meeting in person on via call in to voice the communities objection to this planned compactor.  Unfortunately the HEX decided to allow the insubstantial change that will allow this project to move forward.

We are continuing dialogue with the Amberton management group regarding operations of the compactor to look to have the operation of said compactor be minimally intrusive to our community.

The board thanks all those members who registered their objections at both the community information meeting as well as at the hearing examiners meeting.
