Lee County looking to add boat ramp to North Fort Myers

North Fort Myers is a step closing to have a new boat ramp and park with Lee County looking to add boat ramp to North Fort Myers.

The property located on North Tamiami Road costs $1.3 million, but the county could also expand and build a park that would cost in total close to $4 million.

This site was also being looked at by the City ofFort Myers as a replacement to the boat ramp downtown.

The prospect of a city-owned public facility on the north side of the river has some county officials worried that Fort Myers will try to expand its boundaries to take in part of North Fort Myers.

“That’s my chief concern, I don’t want the city of Fort Myers to buy land outside of the city limits and possibly annex it,” said County Commissioner Brian Hamman. “We certainly do need to replace the boat ramp – in Lee County we can always use another boat ramp and purchasing that land can help.”

Commission Chairman Cecil Pendergrass said annexation could lead to a battle similar to the city of Cape Coral’s decision to annex land near Matlacha, a move that has led to court fights and efforts to incorporate Pine Island as a separate city.

Here is a list of the assets involved:

  1. 1021 N TAMIAMI TRL NORTH FORT MYERS FL 33903
  2. 1025 N TAMIAMI TRL NORTH FORT MYERS FL 33903
  3. 1027 N TAMIAMI TRL NORTH FORT MYERS FL 33903

Lee County has 17 public boat ramp and access points.
