Discover the Estero Council of Community Leaders

Who is the ECCL?

The Estero Council of Community Leaders is made up of Estero communities and volunteers that serve all Estero stakeholders as the “Voice of the People”. We are a grassroots organization that listens to the concerns of all Estero residents and provides a forum for community-wide support for their concerns and perceived threats to their quality of life in Estero.

What we do

Our volunteers: stay ahead of major issues, warning residents of important hearings and providing briefs and contact information; organize the community in major volunteer efforts; speak out in places and times where government is restricted by Sunshine Laws; communicate regularly with the community;  and  gather community input and provide forums for residents to air concerns.

Accomplishments

The ECCL made an impact in Estero, leading campaigns to influence lawmakers on quality of life issues, demonstrating community support of quality healthcare in the community, speaking out for the environment, influencing transportation decision-makers, researching local issues, and notifying residents of many fast-moving campaigns.
