Lehigh Acres MSID celebrates new name, accomplishments

The Lehigh Acres Municipal Services Improvement District is celebrating its first anniversary with its new moniker and its 58th year in the community.

Over the last year, it has achieved a number of milestones by building and fostering relationships with local and state governments, said Commissioner Ken Thompson, chairman of the board.

In May, the LA-MSID broke ground on the Southwest Lehigh Weirs project, also known as the Aquifer Benefit and Storage for the Orange River Basin project.

The project provides construction of 25 weirs in Lehigh through a strategic partnership with the Florida Department of Transportation, South Florida Water Management District and Florida Department of Environmental Protection.
