Voice of Fort Myers Beach welcomes development that is in accordance with the town's comprehensive plan. The Times Square Resorts project is requesting a deviation from the plan that would permit them to build a substantial amount more. Density does matter, especially at the entrance of Fort Myers Beach where a bottleneck of traffic already occurs.
The areas of greatest concern with overdevelopment include:
Together we can make a difference.
Voice of Fort Myers Beach, organized by a group of concerned Fort Myers Beach stakeholders, believes in responsible development that preserves the integrity of the island and the Town Comp Plan. The Comp Plan was created to prevent overdevelopment on the island that can negatively impact its infrastructure- traffic, parking, utilities and more.
Voice of Fort Myers Beach is not against TPI Hospitality or Tom Torgerson personally but is strongly opposed to ANY development that doesn't comply with the density allowed in the Comp Plan.
The purpose of this website is to serve as a valuable resource tool for those individuals who believe developers should follow the Town's Comp Plan. Due to the negative actions of a select few, the Voice of FMB Facebook page is reserved solely for those individuals who are opposed to overdevelopment and want to protect the island and its Comp Plan. Your voice does matter. We encourage you to continue to Voice "NO" to OVERdevelopment.

TPI Hospitality filed its first official application for version 3 of its development plan called Times Square Resorts on Thursday, March 30, 2017.Although somewhat scaled down from original plans, its well over what the land development plan (LDC) allows.
As much as we would all like to see new development break ground, it's vital that TPI Hospitality adjust its density and intensity of the project to comply with the existing Comprehensive Plan. If TPI Hospitality is granted the 12x multiplier and insufficient parking the floodgates would open to allow all other developers and existing resort owners the opportunity to increase density as well.
