After the public kick-off meeting in April, the consultants and the City did a great job at collecting and analyzing large amounts of data. With the expertise of the consultants and a wealth of public input via the community input map, the plan is now reaching the draft stages.
A look at the community input map shows the engagement of the people of Cape Coral, with valuable suggestions and innovative ideas for better and safer (bike) paths, intersections, and other improvements everywhere you look.
On August 24, there will be another opportunity for residents of the Cape (and elsewhere) to be informed and get involved. The draft plan will be presented, and everyone will have another opportunity to take part in the process, and give feedback.
So save the date of Wednesday, August 24, bring your friends and neighbors, and come to the community workshop at the Cape Coral Public Works Building (Green Room), 815 Nicholas Parkway East, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
