Charlotte County lies on Florida’s west coast, along the Gulf of Mexico. It is named for Charlotte Harbor, a natural estuary which is being threatened by rapid development and overuse of resources. Originally a part of Hillsborough County, which includes Tampa, Charlotte County was created in 1921. Its county seat of Punta Gorda (Spanish for “Fat Point”) is the only incorporated city within the county and one of the oldest in the state. Hurricane Charley did significant damage to the area on August 13, 2004. Many historic buildings had to be restored, and there was a great deal of new construction, with buildings meeting hurricane resistant codes.
The population of Charlotte County nearly doubled in the 1980s due to rapid development of many retirement communities.
