There is talk of making Lakewood Ranch into it's own city. Even though it's a huge community with just about everything you need already in place, I'm not sure how happy the residents living there would be about this. What would be the cost of turning Lakewood Ranch into it's own city? What are the positives and the negatives of doing this? I wonder how many people would move out of the area if this was passed? I've not actually ever seen a community transition into a city, so I'm not sure what all is involved with the process and the expense to the residents if they do decide to do this.
I guess we will just have to wait and see what happens and what is voted on.
Has anyone ever seen this process happen and how it works? What was the outcome of it?
