ESTERO - Estero was once the fastest growing community in the entire country. And while it is still growing today, the boom has tapered off. But people there still want to make it stand out to everyone in Southwest Florida.
"There is so much potential, so much potential," said Trisha Fay. "It's a place where you live, not fond of producing anymore strip malls or shopping sites."
Without city government, it is the residents' opinions that shape the community – a community that statistics show increased in population by 178-percent since April of 2000. And about 80 people voiced their opinions Monday night during a brainstorming session at the Estero Community Park.
