Life on Fort Myers Beach


TOP NEWS STORIES

Code Enforcement or Compliance?
Town Policy Creates Confusion & Frustration
Code Enforcement for the Town of Fort Myers Beach traditionally was on a complaint-driven basis. Town personnel, however, recently began a process to seek out violations where no complaint has been received. It sees this as a proactive formula to enhance property values, while those on the other side of the equation feel there may be a vindictive element to the process. “I requested that our Code Enforcement team begin at the north end of the island and work their way southward, to identify potential violations,” said Town Manager Roger Hernstadt.” “The most common issues so far have to do with parking, as the island has legal parking lots and others that are not fully authorized, so we need to protect those parking lots that have spent a lot of time and money to come into compliance, meaning we are obligated to bring those other lots up to that same level, out of fairness. We are also trying to identify commercial properties that use the Town Right-of-Way for overflow parking without a permit or agreement with us. It is my job to implement the laws and policies of the Town Council, and we try to be proactive while preventing community issues. That said, we will do our jobs diligently until such time that Council modifies the code or policy.”  CONTINUE READING


Long Term Solution for Short Term Rentals
After months of debate over Short Term Rentals, the Fort Myers Beach Town Council passed an updated Ordinance in a divided vote before roughly 25 people on Monday, May 7, 2018 at 9 a.m. In a separate action during its ambitious agenda, Council adopted the Short Term Rental Registration Fees in a majority vote. Council began its 2nd Reading & Final Public Hearing for Short Term Rental Regulations with Public Comment. Jessie Titus was one of four people to speak against it, asking why the Town does not enforce its current regulations, “since the Town had not one single complaint ever!” Dave Ennis, however, was one of two speakers in favor. He no longer wants crying children all day and 15 to 20 people partying every night, “so I don’t see anything wrong with this.” Council member Bruce Butcher believed it unnecessary for each individual condominium unit to register, with Mayor Tracey Gore stating that an Ordinance option, if approved by Council, would allow condominiums to opt out in favor of administering their own regulations that are often more strict than those proposed by the Town. Council member Dennis Boback met in March with representatives of 30 condominium associations on Fort Myers Beach, and 27 support having condominiums in the Ordinance, to help enforce their rules. His bigger issues are complaints and enforcement: “You cannot complain anonymously; you must identify yourself so you can’t put anyone out of business with false claims.”  CONTINUE READING

First Turtle Nest on Fort Myers Beach

Turtle nesting season on Fort Myers Beach is officially from May 1 through October 31, and 2018 began right on time, reported Eve Haverfield, the founder of Turtle Time, Inc. “We found the nest on the morning of Tuesday, May 1, at a mid-island location,” said Eve. “We had to relocate it to a nearby and safer spot, however, because the Mom laid the original nest low on the beach, in a mechanically-flattened area that can easily flood. Sea turtle embryos can tolerate wash-overs but they drown when submerged in standing water, whereas nests on elevated sand dunes drain effectively, so it was a necessary precaution.”  READ MORE



Nesting Shorebirds – Season Nears Peak

Perhaps no community in the nation revolves around seasons more than Fort Myers Beach! Whether it is Tourist Season, Off-season or Nesting Turtle Season, we either seem to be coming into one, getting out of one or heading into the peak of one. In this case, it is the latter, as we are entering the main part of Nesting Shorebird Season! “In our region, nesting shorebird season goes from February 15 through September 1,” said Rae Burns, the Environmental and Stormwater Technician for the Town of Fort Myers Beach. “We put up the caution ropes in early April, once we saw them scraping around in the sand, preparing to configure their nests. This is just a tad earlier than the past few seasons, but nothing unusual.” Rae said that while the season lasts until early September, “Our peak is from late June through early July, as that is when the Black skimmers join the crowd. Things slow down throughout August, but you still need to keep an eye out during that time, as the little puffballs are still running around the beach, trying to finish growing up.”  READ MORE

Life on Fort Myers Beach


Welcome back to Life on Fort Myers Beach.  The place where you can find all the top news, latest events and featured property listings on Fort Myers Beach, FL. 



Management and Planning Session Yields Surprising Topic 
Welcome to Crescent Beach?

One of the key components to the Town of Fort Myers Beach Council’s unanimous approval of the TPI-FMB Downtown Redevelopment Proposal, after two marathon sessions of Monday & Tuesday, April 9 & 10, was when TPI Board Chair Tom Torgerson agreed to the suggestion by Vice Mayor Joanne Shamp to donate the former Ocean Jewels building, at the base of the Matanzas Pass Bridge, now home to the Greater Fort Myers Beach Chamber of Commerce, to the Town for a future Gateway entrance to the island. Soon, and for generations to come, residents and visitors may cross the bridge and see, “Welcome to Crescent Beach!” Crescent Beach? The surprising topic came up in an unexpected forum. After meeting for almost 16 combined hours on TPI-FMB earlier in the week, before a packed Council Chambers, the Management & Planning Session on Thursday, April 12, did not even have a full panel, with Council member Anita Cereceda on an excused absence. The audience section, with the exception of a few Town staff and media, was completely empty. CONTINUE READING




How Do Paper Straws Hold Up

Some feature articles are dream assignments; others are labors of love – this one is both! Roughly two-and-a-half months ago, on February 4 – Super Bowl Sunday, oddly enough, one of the biggest bar days on the year – the Town of Fort Myers Beach implemented its Plastic Straw Ban Ordinance for all beach establishments. Ten weeks later, we wondered: How do paper straws hold up under some of the beach’s favorite beverages, and what are some of the beach’s bartenders hearing about the new paper alternatives from their customers? The Town of Fort Myers Beach Council at its November 6, 2017, meeting approved the new Ordinance that prohibits the distribution of plastic straws though vending, sales, giving, deployment or delivering them for any purpose, as when irresponsibly discarded, they pose an environmental threat to the health, safety and welfare of the citizens and visitors of Fort Myers Beach, as well as negatively impacting water quality and the surrounding marine life. When Council passed the ordinance, it gave beach businesses 90 days to go through their current plastic straw inventory. There are a few exceptions to the ban, such as those used on private property or at residences, by the Lee County School District or beverages prepared and packaged outside the Town, like juice boxes with straws.  CONTINUE READING

Life on Fort Myers Beach


What's happening on the wonderful island of Fort Myers Beach, Florida?  Find out in this week's edition of Life on Fort Myers Beach. 



FMB Film Festival Returns April 25 – 29
Image result for film 
A little bit of Hollywood returns to Southwest Florida with the 12th Fort Myers Beach Film Festival from Wednesday, April 25, through Sunday, April 29, at The Beach Theater at 6425 Estero Boulevard. “The FMB Film Festival originally began in the year 2000,” explained event spokesperson Tanya Kaish Keller. “A major sponsor was the Town of Fort Myers Beach, but in 2005, a new Council came in with different priorities. They cut the Film Festival funding, so it faded to black for a few years! The Fort Myers Beach Friends of the Arts felt the Film Festival was a great community event, so they reorganized it in 2012 and remain the driving force today, along with our sponsors. The thought was, let’s get back into it, because the Film Festival was fantastic for business and wonderful for the locals, as it is just one more fun thing to do on Estero Island.” A small committee under the direction of Janeen Paulauskis from the Fish-Tale Marina selects the films. “This is not as glamorous as it seems,” Tanya related, “as they must preview every submission to decide which ones do or do not make the cut, as not every movie is good enough or appropriate for our audience.”  CONTINUE READING


Protect Our Sea Turtles
Unofficial Season Began April 15
 “We have not seen any turtle indications on our first few walks, except that it was really cold earlier this week,” exclaimed Eve Haverfield, the founder of Turtle Time, Inc., a non-profit established in 1989 for the benefit of marine turtles on Big Hickory Island, and Bonita, Bunche, and Fort Myers Beaches. “Loggerhead turtles will wait to nest until it gets a bit warmer, as they have turtle necks and not turtleneck sweaters! What was great was how many people welcomed us back to the beach, saying how neat it was to see us again, so it felt good to be back out there.” Turtle nesting season is officially from May 1 through October 31, “but the State of Florida asks us to start monitoring our zones beginning Sunday, April 15,” Eve explained. “Gulf of Mexico waters are already warming into the high 70s, with turtles seen gathering in the area. Once the water reaches 80 degrees, that makes conditions conducive for nesting, with mothers coming on-shore to lay eggs, so that is why we start early, to not miss any nests. Our colleagues already discovered some on the East Coast, and in previous years we found one on Fort Myers Beach as early as April 25 and on Bonita Beach on April 20.”  CONTINUE READING
