The town of Fort Myers Beach Town Council is hosting a special meeting with condo association presidents and residents on Thursday at 9AM at Bay Oaks. The council wants to address any questions condo associations have that might help them get open sooner.
Every condo building on Fort Myers Beach was impacted by Hurricane Ian 15months ago. Very few have opened since. The reasons vary. Some buildings are still dealing with insurance. Others are working through the permitting process. And, of course, some had to be demolished because the damage was so severe. In those cases, some condos will be rebuilt while others will sell off their property.
Vice Mayor Jim Atterholt wants the meeting to be a one-stop shop for all questions condo associations have and how the town can help speed up the process to get them up and running and residents back in their buildings.
Beach Talk Radio will carry the meeting live which will be held at the new town hall trailers on the Bay Oaks property.
Following the special meeting with the condo associations, the town will go right into a joint meeting with the LPA at 11AM.
