How did SCCF form and why? In the late 1950s when developments were exploding in most Florida coastal areas, Lee County set the density for Sanibel Island at 35,000 units. However the islands were hard to reach due to the lack of a causeway and lack of large amounts of drinkable water. That changed in 1963 with the building of the Sanibel Causeway and in 1966 with the creation of steady supply of drinking water produced by the Island Water Association.
