Our Mission

The purpose of the Safety Council (SC) is to serve as the voice of the residents of greater Estero on safety issues by monitoring community safety hazards and advocating for safe neighborhoods and public spaces. The SC enhances public safety by identifying the causes and consequences of current and potential physical danger and traffic condition issues. The SC’s responsibility is to advocate for solutions to population growth-related physical danger and traffic-related problems by developing approaches to solicit support from Village, County, and State organizations.
