Shoutout to staff in the Community Development Department (who are the liaisons with the LPA), the Town Councilors, and the members of the Local Planning Agency! One of our residents took the time to share these nice words, and we appreciate them very much.
"The recent joint meeting between Town Council and LPA was a beautiful example of what it means to join together with a single focus...how to begin to reframe FMB after Ian struck.
What stood out so vividly was the 'tone'
of the meeting. Everyone was truly 'present.' Each of you shared your thoughts and ideas....AND you listened to each other and made sure everyone had 'voice.'
Anyone watching that meeting couldn't help but feel a bit more hopeful that, indeed, our town is in good hands as we struggle to create a future that celebrates the past and boldly defines what might be. Your meeting was a real model for others to learn from.
Thank you for your continued hard work on behalf of all of us on Fort Myers Beach."
