State Rep. Ray Rodrigues announced a venue change for his upcoming Estero Incorporation Town Hall meeting.
Due to overwhelming turnout from the community at the first town hall held Monday, the meeting scheduled for 6 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 12, will take place at Estero High School’s auditorium, 21900 River Ranch Road.
Rodrigues, R-Estero, is hosting the town hall forums to get community input about a proposed referendum that could turn Estero into a municipality.
About 350 people packed into the Estero Community Park Recreation Center to share their views with members of the local state delegation. About another 150 people were turned away, according to a count by Rodrigues’ staff.
Even more people are expected at the second town hall. Estero High School’s auditorium can fit about 990 people, Lee County School District officials said.
The Estero Council of Community Leaders, a grass-roots group that is spearheading the referendum campaign, is expected to make a final presentation at the local delegation’s official meeting scheduled for Tuesday, Dec. 3 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Edison State College, 8099 College Pkwy., Fort Myers, in the Nursing Building, Room AA-177.
