Ward 2 Recent Developments

Hanson Street Extension is now open.  Eastwood Golf Course was renovated to accommodate the road changes. Golfers can now safely use a tunnel to cross Hanson St.  The City of Fort Myers "Complete Streets Initiative" was followed as bicycle lanes and pedestrian sidewalks are included as part of the multi-modal transportation.

Allowing the trades to move thru the city efficiently makes Fort Myers a great place to open a business.  As a result, we can bring more jobs to our local workforce. 

Final mile delivery has been accelerated in importance to the public as Ecommerce provided access to goods and services. To keep up with the demand for delivery within days or even hours,  improving traffic flow and access to Interstate 75 meets the needs of the public.  Opportunities for additional growth is largely due to solid design and investment into our roadways.
