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.

The December 11, 2020 meeting of the ECCL was held virtually on Zoom. Featured speakers were Dr. Ana Puszkin-Chevlin, Regional Director, Growing Climate Solutions – Path to Positive; and Jodi Walborn, Policy and Worksite Co-Lead, Blue Zones Project – SWFL..

Key Observations from the December 2020 ECCL Monthly Meeting.

After the welcome and opening remarks, Dr. Ana Puszkin-Chevlin, Regional Director of Growing Climate Solutions – Path to Positive (GSPP), was introduced.

Dr. Ana Puszkin-Chevlin oversees the goals of GCS-PP, which strives to educate and empower individuals, businesses, governmental agencies, and communities regarding climate change to help prevent, mitigate and prepare for the changes which may put our area at risk. Their position is apolitical.

In cooperation with FGCU, Collier County, the Conservancy, and SWFL Community Foundation they: –

  • Help secure grants.
  • Provide educational seminars dealing with issues that will impact us, such as
    • sea-level changes,
    • hurricanes, heat
    • other extreme weather situations.

GCS-PP explores and advocates for informed planning in transportation, land use, and conservation of resources. Speakers are available to present programs to area groups.

They plan three lectures for the Spring. For more information: –

The second speaker, Jodi Walborn, is the co-lead for Policy & Worksite, Blue Zones Project. She focuses on environmental issues linked to building projects. She supports green space and how land development, roads, and other developments can be people-centric rather than auto-centric.

Jodi aims to work with Estero leadership to establish priorities and policies that ensure appropriate and continuous growth, ensuring developments enhance public safety and convenience. She is eager to become involved with residents, developers, and the Estero Village Council’s development unit. You can reach Jodi by email jodi.walborn@sharecare.com
