Village of Estero residents should expect to see progress on numerous capital improvement project throughout Estero in 2021. The Village, along with partner agencies, is planning several drainage, roadway, intersection, landscaping and bicycle/pedestrian projects this year. The completion of roadway, bicycle and pedestrian pathways, landscaping and lighting improvements along Estero Parkway is just the beginning! Here’s a summary of what to expect in 2021.

 

Planning for more parks & recreation opportunities

In addition to the many infrastructure improvements Estero residents will see in 2021, planning will soon begin for some major parks and recreation projects to come.

The Village will begin its work on a master plan for the Estero on the River property, a 60-acre property at the northeast corner of U.S. 41 and Corkscrew Road, directly across from Koreshan State Park. This follows a series of community surveying events completed this fall. The Village will continue to seek input from citizens in a number of ways as the master plan is formed this year — so stay tuned!

Similarly, the Village will begin a master planning effort for the potential expansion of The Estero Community Park. This project is being planned in response to recommendations made in the Village’s Park, Recreation and Opens Space Master Plan. Similar to the Estero on the River project, several opportunities for public input will be provided throughout the project planning process.

The Village is committed to improving our community, while remaining responsive to the economic challenges and needs of the community during the ongoing pandemic. As always, our decision-making process will be transparent, deliberate and balanced.
