Streets Alive of SWFL was formerly known as Streets Alive Lee, a project born in 2011 with the Healthy Lee Coalition and the support of the Florida Department of Health in Lee County and completely run with the help of volunteers. Streets Alive Lee was thought to be an actualization of the global phenomenon known as “Ciclovía.” The concept of Ciclovía (translation from Spanish is “bike path”), began in the city of Bogotá, Colombia in 1976.

It’s not just old-school developers who design barriers into the pedestrian experience. Every day, people who don’t drive experience discrimination in the form of bad street design, sidewalk obstacles and blithe disregard for their needs.
This is a picture by the BELL TOWER SHOPS, where we have witnessed probably hundreds commuting on a daily basis by bus...but there are no sidewalks or bus shelter to this heavy used bus stop.
Notice there is no sidewalk to this bus stop, in fact the only sidewalks are on US41 and they disappear as you turn into the connecting streets.
Sidewalks, bus stops and people are part of the transportation system, they all need to be connected!
As the BELL TOWER SHOPS is being renovated, this could be a perfect opportunity to add sidewalks and make it a pedestrian friendly destination; even the fact that Crowne Plaza Fort Myers At Bell Tower Shops and Homewood Suites Fort Myers- Bell Tower are across the street, would make it a great complement to the ongoing facelift efforts.
