In other Council business, the resolution approving reimbursement to the Estero Council of Community Leaders for expenditures associated with the initial Council meeting and website expenses was approved.

The resolution amending the Zoning in Progress Resolution to include the Healthcare Village, or map B, was also approved. This now allows development to be delayed in both the Village Center, map A, and Healthcare Village, map B, until Spikowski Planning Associates add the two overlay maps to Estero’s Comp Plan and adopt policies that describe and regulate what would be developed in these mixed use areas. This work is expected to take three months.

In the afternoon Workshop, Council reviewed and prioritized a long list of topics to be addressed in future workshops.

Vice Mayor Howard Levitan read from a list of land use cases and development services needing to be addressed by the newly appointed land use boards in the near future.

Further details will be included in the minutes of this meeting once they become available.
