Our Work

Transportation Council

Our Purpose

To proactively engage with Local, County, State, and Federal government and agencies and civic coalitions advocating to ensure the design, execution, and maintenance of roads, bike lanes, rails to trails, and multi-use paths support a safe, active lifestyle and high quality of life. To inform the ECCL Executive Management Team and make actionable, timely recommendations to support or oppose possible action.

 

 

 

What we’re doing…

Roadways in Estero and surrounding communities are built and maintained by a variety of local, state and even national agencies, as well as private organizations. Planning and funding for these roads is done years in advance. The only way to have an impact is to be involved before the problem is evident.
