Action Alert: Attend Dec. 3rd Fort Myers Public Meeting re: McGregor Blvd. Improvements

There's an important public meeting in Fort Myers on Thursday, Dec. 3rd (5-7 p.m.) about upcoming improvements along a 2-mile stretch of McGregor Blvd.  As Councilman Flanders notes below, this is an opportune time to communicate with the City about the need to incorporate plans for speed control, traffic calming, and safe pedestrian crossings as part of this project.

RE:   McGregor Boulevard Repair and Resurfacing

Dear Interested Citizen,

Within the next several months, FDOT has funded the repair and resurfacing of McGregor Boulevard from Colonial Boulevard to Poinciana Avenue.  In addition, The City of Fort Myers will also follow up and fund the repair and resurfacing of McGregor Boulevard from Poinciana Avenue to Cleveland Avenue.

Though funds are specifically for repair and resurfacing, it will be the opportune time to design and implement the City’s long range adopted plans for speed control, traffic calming, and “safe” pedestrian crossings.  In addition, it may be the only time in the next 30 years to address questions about how we should plan, design, and construct for multimodal transportation on a historic boulevard which is 85% bordered by single family residential property.  I have bee3n told that construction work beyond “repair & resurfacing” would have to be an additional cost paid by the City.

Please read the attached flyer and make an effort to attend this important public information meeting at Fort Myers Country Club hosted by FDOT and the City of Fort Myers.  The meeting is Thursday, December 3, from 5pm to 7pm.

See you there!

Michael Flanders, Ward 4 Councilperson
