Fort Myers City Manager, William Mitchell, submitted a report to City Council last week about the steps taken by staff toward development a Complete Streets Program, as called for in the complete streets resolution adopted by the Council on October 3, 2011.
The next step in the process is to develop complete streets design guidelines, using the national framework model called Living Streets Manual, which was recently adopted by Broward County.
To assist the staff in customizing the manual to the city's needs, the city is establishing an ad hoc study committee by December, which will develop recommendations and the guidelines for City Council consideration by December 2013. Members of the committee will be from the following organizations:
1. Fort Myers Bicycle Pedestrian Board
2. Fort Myers Planning Board
6. Lee Memorial Health System
7. Lee County Health Department
9. Fort Myers Chamber of Commerce.
