Imagine a city where every neighborhood is a beacon of growth and community spirit—
a place where residents enjoy sustainable, thriving spaces and businesses benefit from a
vibrant economic environment. This is the future the Fort Myers Community Redevelop-
ment Agency is creating.

Spotlight on Local Brilliance: Re-Introducing the CRAs Business Spotlight Program!    

In every corner of our redevelopment areas, there’s a story waiting to be told. From the quaint
coffee shop that wakes up the neighborhood with the rich aroma of freshly ground beans to the
tech startup that’s innovating for a better tomorrow, Fort Myers is brimming with entrepreneurial spirit.  

Recognizing the heartbeat of our community, the Fort Myers Community Redevelopment Agency
(CRA) is thrilled to roll out the Business Spotlight Program again. This initiative aims to shine a
light on the diverse, innovative, and resilient businesses that form the backbone of our local economy.
