Council has approved moving forward with the grant application submittal for the Lee County Tourist Development Council’s annual grant cycle. The TDC encourages local government agencies to request beach and shoreline funding annually. The TDC members review and evaluate each request to ensure eligibility and forward their recommendations to the Lee County Board of County Commissioners for inclusion in the County’s annual capital improvement budget.

If received, these funds would be put toward the development and implementation of Phase 2 of the River Park Project. Proposed enhancements for Phase 2 include:

• Additional permanent art pieces with pedestals
• Additional pedestals for traveling art exhibits
• Irrigation, landscaping and lighting

The Art in Public Places Committee reviewed the Phase 2 proposed improvements and voted unanimously to support the application at their February 11, 2020 meeting. The deadline to apply is February 27, 2020 and funds will be available in the FY2020-2021 budget year if funded.
