Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan Underway
Ft. Myers Beach Community Input Map is first opportunity for input
Want to improve walking and biking in the Ft. Myers Beach? This is your chance! The Ft. Myers Beach Community Input Map is the first step in a larger effort to improve walking and biking in the Town. Ft. Myers Beach, in partnership with the Lee County MPO and Lee County, is undertaking the development of a Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan. This interactive map allows you to note walking or biking issues and/or make comments on improvements to the network you’d like to see, such as a particular bike route you’d like built, attention to a missing link, etc. The results will be used to identify and prioritize projects during the planning process.
Click on this link to access the map. Instructions are provided at the link for using the interactive map.
In addition to the online map, there will be other opportunities to provide your input in person and help shape the goals for the project.
Please join the Town, your friends, and neighbors at an interactive, community workshop on Wednesday, February 15 at the Town Hall (2525 Estero Blvd, Ft. Myers Beach, FL) from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. We want you to share with Town staff: What does it mean to you to walk and bike in Fort Myers Beach? How can we improve bicycling and walking in Fort Myers Beach? What would encourage you to walk and bike more? And how can we better connect you to your destinations?
The workshop will include a presentation about the project, interactive exercises to collect ideas for plan recommendations, and time to talk with Town staff and project team members about your interests and ideas to improve walking and biking in Fort Myers Beach.
Please feel free to share the online map link and information about the community workshop. We would like to gather as much input as possible.
Thank you for your contribution toward this effort.
