Ward 3 Economic Development

In the center of Ward 3 is Hanson St which is zoned for light industrial.  The additional housing units either under construction, planned, or permitted will provide additional workforce in the area.  We are seeing more projects for additional industrial and retail space to provided employment opportunities.  The median age is 31. 8 and the population is growing.  Ward 3 is in the heart of Fort Myers providing access to many amenities within our growing city.  Ward 3 has Opportunity Zones for future development and impact investing in the area would improve the current median household income of $27,628.00.  As a younger population there is great potential with access to workforce training.
