Planning for Beautiful Spaces

When the City of Fort Myers considers redevelopment we hope to see vibrant spaces that celebrate the unique identities of the city and neighborhoods.  We believe our investment in the community and the property requirements supports your business success and the success of those businesses around you. The level of care given to keep the city clean and safe is through out the city.

There is pride in our historic district along McGregor Boulevard or in Dean Park Historic District. You will feel welcome in our attractive built environment. Developers understand the value of access to public spaces as well as incorporating beautiful landscapes to attract people to our area. 

Take advantage of the views of the river, access to public parks and piers, and utilize the Riverside Community Center for you next family event.  Public spaces are created to generate street-level activity and support local businesses and this location is only a mile from historic downtown.  We continue to strive for a more healthy lifestyle in our community spaces.

First and Second Street Improvements with added bicycle lanes will make it easier to travel within the city limits.  Construction begins in the Spring of 2021.

When you consider doing business in Fort Myers make it a clean and inviting storefront and consider investing in our commercial corridors streetscape.  It's worth the investment to attract and welcome your customer base and the community will thank you.
