Ave Maria, Florida, is a planned college town in Collier County, Florida near Immokalee and Naples, Florida.
Ave Maria, Florida is an unincorporated community that was founded in 2005 by Ave Maria Development Company, a partnership consisting of the Barron Collier Compaines and the Ave Maria Foundation led by Roman Catholic philanthropist and activist Tom Monaghan, founder of Domino's Pizza and the leader of Ave Maria University at the time.(refer to Wiki) Monaghan served as president of Ave Maria University until February 2011. The development of the town was made possible when the Florida legislature created the Ave Maria Stewardship Community District, a limited local government whose purpose is to provide community infrastructure, including community development systems, facilities, services, projects, and improvements. It is one of the top-selling master planned communities in the United States.
Ave Maria has a severe mosquito problem, and has been sprayed more than 30 times via airplane with pesticides by the Collier Mosquito Control District in 2015 with organophosphates and pyrethroids, making it the most sprayed area in Southwest Florida. The Collier Mosquito Control District spokesman, Adrian Salinas stated in 2012 to the Ave Maria Herald, "The chemical used in the spraying is naled, an organophosphate that the EPA has determined to be extremely safe. Exposure might cause some eye irritation, he said, but no other effects." This statement is contrary the EPA's own 2006 re-registration document for Naled which requires a 48-hour re-entry interval for farm workers when a field is sprayed due to toxicity, and that, "Naled can cause cholinesterase inhibition in humans; that is, it can overstimulate the nervous system causing nausea, dizziness, confusion, and at very high exposures (e.g., accidents or major spills), respiratory paralysis and death".
Ave Maria is home to various institutions and businesses. Local news is covered by a local online newspaper called the Ave Herald.(see Wiki)
