Who and What
is the ECCL?
Who Are We?
The Estero Council of Community Leaders (ECCL) is a volunteer, non-partisan, non-political, IRS-designated 501c3 nonprofit organization.
What is Our Purpose?
Driven by resident input and facts, our purpose is to serve as the voice of the residents of greater Estero. Fighting for what’s right and striving to right what’s wrong, we seek opportunities, challenge threats, offer solutions, monitor Local, County, and State government performance, and encourage community engagement by communicating reliable, accurate information supporting informed decision-making.
Enjoying our clean, attractive environment, feeling safe, having access to good healthcare, developing excellent educational facilities, good road networks, encouraging a greater focus on culture/the arts and sports facilities, enjoying various shops and restaurants, and minimizing overpopulation, are all vital to our well-being and quality of life. Our efforts have helped to increase our property values and have had a significant effect on enhancing the attractiveness of this part of South West Florida to visitors.
The ECCL focuses on six key areas or “pillars” considered critical to the greater Estero area:
