Straight From The Mayor: Tropical Storm Isaac served as a reminder for Cape Coral

I would like to congratulate Chief Van Helden, our city staff, and county officials for the way they handled what eventually became Hurricane Isaac.

Everything was done in a very professional manner and highly organized. I personally went and spent a couple of hours at the City's Emergency Operations Center, and everyone there seemed to be in complete control. If that was a sample of our emergency responders, and what they are capable of doing, I feel the residents of Cape Coral should understand we are in very good hands.


Straight From The Mayor: Looking at both sides of the proposed RV resort park

A new venture has been brought forward to the city of Cape Coral.

This new venture is an RV resort park located in the north area of the city.

This RV resort will encompass almost 200 acres and be home to high end RVers from around the country. It is a very interesting concept, and I hope it is viable.
