Naples Area Expansion

Naples population resides within a planned urban development area (PUD). The PUD is just but a small part of Naples. Located on the western edge of the Collier County Naples has the capacity to expand to the eastern part of Collier County which is basically covered by large tracks of land. Considering the fact that the western part of Naples is already build up it is impossible to come up with new structures unless the current ones are brought down. With the high land value in this region it is common sense that any structure with less value can be brought down to establish a better one. However the western side is not available for new communities that may need large tracks of land. For those who may need large tracks such as those for golf course are forced to move to the north east and south east regions. Despite that, smaller communities might still find some space on the western side of Naples.

The East of Naples hosts Golden Gate Estates which was developed on a piece of land that was initially a swamp. The Estates consists of family homes and lots build on pieces of land of about an acre. The area lacks current development but the trends are anticipated to change due to increased residential growth towards the east. Golden gate Estates was built decades back but still holds value.
