I spoke to a business owner downtown this week and she loves the events downtown and she agrees with what Don Paight, the Downtown Community Redevelopment director, was quoted saying in the article.
"Events are a way of introducing people to the downtown area,"
Her only concern is parking and she is hopeful that the City Council approves the hotel partnership on December 1st because in their concept there is additional parking planned for downtown Fort Myers.
Several high rises in downtown Fort Myers also have opportunities to purchase additional parking spaces for their units. Buyers forget to negotiate an additional parking space with their purchase, call me if you are interested in a high rise in downtown Fort Myers and we can find the high rises that offer additional parking spaces.

Please visit The River District's website for Holiday Fun Events in December. One of my favorite River District events this year is the 2014 Holiday Stroll and Tree Lighting Ceremony taking place Saturday, November 29th; The Mayor will start in Centennial Park then head over to Monroe St. and First St. at 6:00 p.m. to ride the Horse Drawn Carriage down First St. to Jackson St. turning left on Jackson St. and stopping for the Mayor to light the wreath at the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center. The carriage will proceed to Bay St., and head West back... to Hendry St. The carriage will turn onto Hendry St. and stop to allow the Mayor to light the Christmas tree on Hendry St. The carriage will then loop around Hendry St. to Bay St. and then continue west to Centennial Park to drop off the Mayor. Please watch for road closures and detour signs to lead you around road closure and get there early for parking.
Also, remember that Art Walk is held the 1st Friday of every month. Next Art Walk will be held December 5th starting @6pm. Music Walk is held 3rd Friday of every month; next Music Walk will be on December 19th starting @7pm.
