Syd Kitson, chairman and CEO of Kitson & Partners, listens carefully to the Lee County Comissioners talk about buying the Babcock Ranch in Fort Myers on Tuesday. Commissioners voted to buy part of Babcock Ranch, but need more time to review the details of an agreement for its development. The commissioners agreed to pay $40 million for about 5,600 acres of Babcock Ranch in the county, which is contingent upon the approval of a four-party agreement for the ranch development among Kitson's company, the state, and Lee and Charlotte counties.
