County Proposes Re-Operating Bay Oaks
When people rate the Quality-of-Life aspects of Fort Myers Beach, every short list contains our beaches and water, great elementary school and dynamic public library, and the Bay Oaks Recreation Center, the heart of the Town’s athletic and programming endeavors from childhood through senior years. Bay Oaks had been a Lee County regional recreation center until The Great Recession forced it upon the Town in 2009. Now Lee County is in the initial process of examining whether to reacquire and turn Bay Oaks into a regional center once again. The common link in this story is District 3 Commissioner Larry Kiker, in whose district falls Fort Myers Beach. Back in 2009, however, Kiker was then mayor of Fort Myers Beach!  FULL STORY

Times Square Tradition in Peril
A long time ago, in a galaxy far far away, there was no Times Square on Fort Myers Beach, and Estero Boulevard ran right through the heart of that neighborhood, as the Town’s popular center did not exist until the early 1990s. But, since 1983, there has been a Pete’s Time Out And, since 1979, there has been a Plaka Restaurant. “I can still remember then-Lee County Commissioner Ray Judah, sitting right here in my restaurant,” recalls Plaka owner Steve Maillakakis, “telling me how great Times Square would be for our businesses, even though we would lose parking and visible signage. We gave up a lot, but eventually agreed to the plan on a handshake, with the promise that this area would be ours, but later the County deeded it to the Town of Fort Myers Beach.”  FULL STORY
