What is the ECCL?
The Estero Council of Community Leaders (ECCL) is a network of communities working together to serve as the “Voice of the People” to advocate for positive change. Because there is strength in numbers and no Sunshine Law restrictions, the ECCL is able to openly address and affect the outcome of both challenges and opportunities facing the community, some of which are outside of the Village Council’s purview.
The ECCL’s mission is to help the Estero community to be informed and involved in Village, County, Regional and State issues that impact the community.
ECCL meetings are held the fourth Friday of each month from 10 a.m. to 12 noon in the Recreation Center at the Estero Community Park. Meetings are open to all Estero residents.
Join a Committee
The ECCL has been serving the residents of Estero as a voluntary, “grass roots” community organization since 2002. Each community designates one voting member and an alternate so that the concerns of all residents have a forum to obtain community-wide support. Each member is responsible for relaying information from the ECCL to their respective communities, as well as relaying their community concerns to the ECCL membership.
The ECCL also informs and garners support from the over 3,900 residents who have requested to be part of the ECCL’s email communications.
