Engage Estero Safety Council is made of volunteers serving as a voice for the citizens of greater Estero on safety and transportation priorities and issues. We advocate for related solutions to Village, County, and State Government organizations.
- Evaluate, prioritize, and monitor the Village of Estero Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) and advocate for change on behalf of the citizenry.
- Develop a Geographic Information System (GIS) for citizen online access to Village CIP items related to roadways, Bike/Ped, and interchange improvements. Access to each CIP project will provide location and cost/schedule information.
- Solicit and encourage additional citizen participation in support of those projects that improve safety, access, and connectivity in Greater Estero
To inform citizens of safety and transportation-related issues, problems, and solutions advocating for community engagement to ensure an improved, safe, and connected transportation network in greater Estero.
Values essential to success and longevity:
- Open and honest communication
- Respect for other ideas and expertise
- Shared responsibility and resources
- Follow through on what we say we will do
- Care about what we are trying to achieve
- Innovation and creative thinking (open to doing things in a new way)
To have an informed and engaged citizenry that understands and engages in finding solutions to safety and connected transportation network issues and problems.
