Dunlap to be Appointed to LPA Monday


On Monday the Fort Myers Beach Town Council will appoint Egret Street resident Jim Dunlap to fill the open seat on the Local Planning Agency. The seat came open when Patrick Vanasse stepped down last month after serving for 5 years. Dunlap was the only qualified candidate to apply for the seat.

Kristi Thornton applied for the seat earlier this month. However, Thornton is not a resident of Fort Myers Beach therefore she is not eligible to be appointed to the LPA. The town’s code states: all members must be residents of, or owners of real property located within, the territorial limits of the Town of Fort Myers Beach at the time of application for membership on the local planning agency and during the period of service on the local planning agency. Thornton lives in the 33931 zip code on San Carlos Boulevard, however, that is considered Lee County.

Last month we interviewed Dunlap on Beach Talk Radio. You can watch that interview HERE.
