Lee County is planning a public meeting this week to inform stakeholders and residents about the yearlong effort the county has nearly completed for Phase 3 of its post-Hurricane Irma flood-mitigation efforts. The informational meeting will be formatted to accommodate CDC guidelines and will be held in half-hour time slots from 3 to 6 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 13, at Wa-Ke Hatchee Recreation Center, 16760 Bass Road, Fort Myers. Participants are asked to make a reservation by calling or emailing in advance at or 239-533-2282. People who arrive without a reservation will be admitted as room capacity allows. Please bring a face covering to wear inside the meeting room. The county plans to create a video at the meeting for those who are unable to attend, but the meeting will not be broadcast live. County staff and engineering firms will be on hand to provide information about the study and its findings related to potential flood-mitigation projects, including East Lee County, Southeast Lee, South Fort Myers and Whiskey Creek. Information also will be available about a prior study completed for North Fort Myers. More information is available at; click on the “Interactive Story Map” on the top left part of the landing page.
