Join the online conversation about Estero Blvd. Improvement Project!

Since posting the Jan. 16th blog post inviting you to participate in this Town Hall discussion, NBC-2 News did a story on Jan. 20th about the project and opportunity to participate, which has generated a great dialogue about ideas for this area.  Read what others have suggested and join the online conversation! (Below are reminder instructions re: how to sign-up.)

Participate in Estero Blvd. Improvement Project online Town Hall discussion

 BikeWalkLee is excited to see the Estero Blvd. Improvement Project (a collaborative effort between LeeDOT and the Town of Fort Myers Beach) getting off the ground.  They've just posted two parts of this project on the County's online "Town Hall" inviting public input.  Take the time to study these proposals and share your comments and ideas online.
Check out BikeWalkLee's June 2012 suggestions for improvements, as part of review of N. Estero Blvd. requested of Mayor Kiker:

 Estero Boulevard Improvements Project
Preliminary plans for improving Estero Boulevard from Crescent Street to Big Carlos Pass are being developed by The Lee County Department of Transportation and the Town of Fort Myers Beach from public input on the Estero Boulevard Master Plan and Analysis and Design Report. Now, key issues are being identified for design plans to help prioritize segments for reconstruction. Check out “Overview of Six Segments” to learn more about each segment. We’ll soon be asking for your input on them all.
