Dunbar & Michigan Redevelopment Areas

About the Districts
On either side of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard are two residential neighborhoods that together form the Dunbar/Michigan redevelopment district, a haven for cultivating a mixed-income, walkable and economically-viable family zone. Developing strategies to create above-average wage jobs that improve residents’ quality of life is an objective that not only benefits the immediate area, but the City of Fort Myers as a whole.

The district was designated in 2007. The northern section is located between Evans Avenue (excluding Velasco Village) to east of Marsh Avenue, and between Billy’s Creek to Eastland Street. The southern section is situated between Evans Avenue and Jacksonville Street, and between MLK and Canal Street.
