We moved to Lehigh from Ohio 18 months ago and never had a problem are neighbors are nice all hard working. Shopping is near us we can get to the beaches in about 30 min we like it here. Yes there may be crime but it's everywhere. The Airport is about 15 min away, Germain Arena is 15 minutes which we are Florida Everglades fans. The Red Socks stadium and Hammond Stadium are also within a 20 minute drive. So what I'm trying to say is you do have access to all the stuff Fort Myers offers.

Golf course communities such as Westminster and Copper Head are nice and pretty safe. The area directly outside of Westminster is "The Hood". The worst area of Lehigh. I'd tell my family STAY AWAY at all costs. Much nicer and safer areas elsewhere. Gateway is close to Lehigh and much nicer. Remember this…….the news only reports 10% of the crime that actually happens in Lehigh. It's much worse than most people know.

I really don't mind the good people moving into Lehigh Acres... it will change the town.. more good people , less bad people in the region.. the bad people can travel and go and steal in Cape Coral and Ft Myers.

I hate to see any town fill up with bad people.. we need the good people to move in , pushing out the bad..hope Lehigh Acres becomes a great place to live with more good than bad.

What does Lehigh have that will attract the 'good' people? Nothing. Not a darn thing. The 'bad' people will never leave Lehigh....the govt buys their food, gives them cash, pays their rent so why in the hell should they leave???


You can thank your local govt for Lehigh being the dump it is.....and you can thank your local govt for ruining the area around Whiskey Creek and Tanglewood as well When they opened that new 'public housing' complex on Summerlin it pretty much brought the area to 'hood' status. Sad...very sad.

It pretty much ruined our Publix...it's like shopping at the Colonial Wal Mart..and if I wanted to shop there..I'd go there.

I am curious and like to know.
How many people in public housing have been shipped to which location of Lehigh ?
What is the percentage of these people in Lehigh's population?

I bet the public housing people is only a minor portion in Lehigh, also their distribution is localized in certain area of Lehigh. Local and small percentage can not represent all and majority of Lehigh Acres. Additionally, does public housing a symbol of crime? I bet there are many good citizens in it as well.
In fact, I had chances to talk to the residents in Lehigh in different occasions, I particularly asked them about the security. Surprisingly, all of them told me it is safe, quite. And some expressed that they preferred Lehigh to the other side of Caloosahachee because they enjoyed the tree, green in Lehigh which is a really different impression I received from what in this forum.
As a personal experience, in few times boys/lady/adult in Lehigh were nice enough to voluntarily offer some help to me just because I pulled over my car which-the nice attitude of people-again is a really different impression I received from what has been casted in this forum.

.

From what I remember ( it's been quite a few years) every resident that was in that (huge!)housing project was shipped to Lehigh. Lots of things weren't made public....if you talk to a LEO from back in the day they can fill you in a lot better than I can.
