Life on Fort Myers Beach Issue 7-17-2017


Public Can Weigh In On Matanzas Pass Preserve Update 
“Lee County updates all of its park plans every ten years,” explained Sherry Furnari, senior supervisor of Land Stewardship. “We are getting ready to do our third version for Matanzas Pass Preserve. It will recap our accomplishments over the past decade, and what we hope for over the next ten years.” The public can provide input in a variety of methods, including a public meeting at the Red Coconut RV Park clubhouse on Tuesday, July 18 at 4:30 p.m. Matanzas Pass Preserve is a 60-acre site at 199 Bay Road that is one of the few undeveloped, protected areas on Estero Island, made up of maritime hammock, tidal swamp, Black mangrove forest and coastal grassland, with a diversity of wildlife including raccoons, hawks, owls, turtles, snakes, heron, fish and songbirds. It is home to several amenities, such as a 1.25-mile trail system, educational programs, two historic cottages near its front entrance operated by the Estero Island Historic Society, and a strong Friends group that has been active since its initial 1974 acquisition.  FULL STORY

From The Desk of Rae Burns, Environmental & Stormwater Technician for the Town of Fort Myers Beach
Rae Burns, the Environmental & Stormwater Technician for the Town of Fort Myers Beach, and her colleague, Chelsea O’Riley, the Public Works Administrative Specialist, bring two issues to the attention of island residents. “The Town’s Public Works Department has not been using any vehicles on the beach for the past month or so,” begins Chelsea. “As a result, staff now empties all garbage and recycling bins at beach accesses directly from Estero Boulevard, and are analyzing how long it takes to make these runs, figuring the difference in time now as opposed to in-season. They proceed south to north on the island, and must do two runs to keep garbage and recycling separate.” “If we don’t keep these apart,” adds Rae, “then it all becomes garbage.”  FULL STORY
