Updates on Issues of Impact

Engage Estero believes the best way to get a community involved is to make sure they are aware of the issues impacting their future, and know how to impact those decisions before they are made. We conduct and publish original research and articles aimed at getting residents Engaged.

Volunteers Beat the Record!

600 pounds collectedThe team of volunteers participating in ECCL’s Adopt a Highway initiative this weekend helped to collect 600 lbs. of rubbish from Estero’s stretch of Hwy 41, bringing the total amount of litter collected over the last three months by various volunteer teams to a staggering 1400 lbs.

The ECCL congratulates these volunteers on their commitment to our community. Individuals involved represented Rapallo, Copperleaf, Colonial Oaks, Pelican Sound, Bella Terra, and FGCU. Our warmest thanks and appreciation for your commitment to helping to ensuring Estero looks its best during the upcoming Holiday period.

The ECCL also wishes to express their gratitude to Marathon fuel/Dos Amigos Mexican Restaurant (formerly Sunmart Food and Fuel) for donating water and ice to the volunteers. We thank you for your generosity in support of this important program to keep Estero looking beautiful.

The ECCL also posts these details on its Facebook page. If you would like to write a personal message of thanks to these fantastic volunteers, please go to your Facebook page, type in “Estero Council of Community Leaders,” and then “share.” You can look at the posting of this article and other topics, but if you press “like” and write a short message, the volunteers would be most appreciative.

The ECCL works with the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) to help clean an approximate four-mile section of Tamiami Trail. Each month’s work involves teams of volunteers who clean areas of the highway, between the Vines entrance (Breckenridge Road) north of Walmart and south to Coconut Road.

The clean-up campaign to make Estero look even more beautiful continues until Spring 2021. If you would like more information on how you can help, please contact Julie Yellig via email at ECCLHwy41@gmail.com for more details. She will provide you with the dates and tell you more about the project.
