The Downtown area of Fort Myers along the Caloosahatchee River has been formally named the “River District.” The goal of the new name is to accentuate the positive riverfront location and bring more people and businesses to the area.
The new River District logo released by the Fort Myers Redevelopment Agency is both catchy and visually attractive. I applaud Don Paight and his team at the Redevelopment Agency for recognizing the importance of segmenting the area around the river from the greater downtown.
For a single-family home in the River District, consider the lovely Dean Park Historic District.
