Since the start of the pandemic, more people are working from home and a recently released report from LinkedIn shows Cape Coral as one of the top places remote workers are moving to. It is becoming known as a Zoom town. People are realizing they can be just as productive working remotely in a smaller city with a lower cost of living as they can in a bigger one such as Chicago, said Ricardo Noguera, Cape Coral’s economic development manager. The city has 4,700 home-based businesses, a figure that Noguera projects could be doubled for an estimate for its number of remote workers. With more people moving to the area, Noguera said city leaders are looking at ways to accommodate remote workers, WINK News reports
