STATION FORT MYERS BEACH, FLORIDA
10/8/2020 - The U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) proposes to demolish existing shore and in-water facilities and redevelop new purpose-built facilities at Station Fort Myers Beach, located in Lee County, Florida. The proposed project would include the construction of a landside Multi-Mission Building and include new parking lots, utilities, and other related infrastructure. In-water work includes replacing an existing bulkhead, replacement of existing piers with a new floating pier, and the installation of a new boat ramp.
The Station has been subject to hurricane damage – including significant damage from Hurricane Irma in 2017 – and general deterioration since its initial construction in the late 1970s / early 1980s. The proposed project is necessary to ensure the continued health and safety of personnel and to improve the ability of this Sector St. Petersburg unit to accomplish its mission.
The Draft EA is available for public review at the Fort Myers Beach Public Library, 2755 Estero Boulevard, Fort Myers Beach, Florida 33931 or electronically at this website:
