Lee County - - The nationwide housing slump continues to make headlines, but the growth isn't slowing down in Lee County.

Monday, Lee County's Planning Commission approved two new residential subdivisions.

One is called Holly Ridge on Donley Drive off Highway 520. It will consist of 59 single family homes.

The other one is called Creekridge. The gated community will be built just off of US 19 and will include 32 homes.  

"It looks like were still growing even though there's a downturn in the housing market....These were well thought out subdivisions, they were well engineered, and we looked at all the specifications. They meet what we needed," says Troy Golden with the Planning Commission.

Both developments will include large areas of green space and other requirements now mandated for large residential developments in Lee County.
