The Conservancy of Southwest Florida welcomes Sean McCabe as its new growth management specialist. In his role within the organization, McCabe’s primary responsibilities involve growth management, with a focus on the Estero Bay Watershed and Southeast Lee County.
McCabe received his Juris Doctor and Master of Studies in Environmental Law from Vermont Law School, and is a member of the Florida Bar. McCabe first gained experience in Florida land use planning during his tenure at the Treasure Coast Regional Planning Council, and prior to working at the Conservancy of Southwest Florida, McCabe was a partner at the law firm of O’Reilly Burton McCabe LLP. McCabe believes in the Conservancy of Southwest Florida’s mission to advocate for appropriate growth management, and that the environmental impact of development can be minimized when land is developed in harmony with nature.
“McCabe is a great example of an individual that is truly dedicated to advocating for our land’s resources, and we are honored to have him as part of our team,” said Rob Moher, Conservancy of Southwest Florida President and CEO. “His experience in the legal aspects of land planning will prove to be advantageous when assessing the impact of growth within our community in order to ensure that the land we leave for future generations is both prosperous and sustainable.”
