Collier county rubble pile hidden by fence

COLLIER COUNTY, Fla.– For the past several months, concrete has piled up on the corner lot of Santa Barbara and Davis Boulevard.

Recently, a fence was added to keep the rubble out of sight.

Bobby Cadenhead, the property agent for Highland Properties of Lee and Collier, said they are working hand in hand with the county to accomplish what code enforcement asks of them.

“They asked for a fence to be put up, we put up the fence,” Cadenhead said, 

The Collier County Commissioners now want the fence to cover all of the perimeter shared with the Boys and Girls Club as a safety measure.

“I believe the fencing should go further,” Commissioner Burt Saunders said. “The safest thing to do would be to extend that fence, I’d like to see it extend through where the ball field is.”

Cadenhead plans to add the fencing. 

For several months, crews have been crushing concrete to make fill dirt. 

“The price of fill dirt is so expensive today,” Cadenhead said. He is using concrete as an economical way to make fill. 

“It’s just a different way of doing it. Everybody has ok’d the operation but they just don’t like the operation,” Cadenhead said. 

Residents like Dick Unger,  just want the concrete crushing to be done. 

“Collier County has to realize you can’t have a site where they do concrete demolition in a neighborhood,” Unger said. 

Cadenhead said crews now are building the foundation for a 17-acre shopping plaza, 130 condos, and a senior living center with 800 units. 

The concrete demolition is expected to be completed in the next five months.
