Downtown Fort Myers Mobility Planning Study

October 26, 2011 · Transit / Pedestrian / Bicycle Planning

The city of Fort Myers retained DPA to prepare a Downtown Mobility Planning Study.  This study explored ways to replace traditional transportation concurrency requirements in downtown Fort Myers with multimodal transportation alternatives including, but not limited to, land use strategies, pedestrian and bicycle improvements, transit improvements, and road and intersection improvements.

The Mobility Planning Study researched and provided an assessment of land use and multimodal transportation strategies and techniques to reduce reliance on the automobile and to foster alternative modes of transportation, such as transit, trolleys and bicycle / pedestrian facilities.  Recommendations from the study will be implemented through amendments to the city of Fort Myers Comprehensive Plan.  These recommendations will support and promote the economic vitality of the city.
