Fort Myers Beach town council members seem to like the current design put forward by design engineer DRMP and they also agree that delaying the project one year is the best course of action for everyone involved. Here's why...
It was originally thought the redevelopment of Times Square might begin following the 2021 season. However, at the request of the Times Square business owners, that time frame is being pushed back one year.
On October 1st, the square footage fees restaurants pay the town of Fort Myers Beach will increase from $10.00 per square foot to $12.50 per square foot. That is, unless the council decides to delay the increase to help those businesses out. The Mayor does not sound like he wants to help.
