Additional Community Information

Conveniently located between Fort Myers and Naples....Florida Gulf Coast University, Germain Arena, Southwest Florida Regional Airport and Interstate 75 are all close by . Over the past years, new homes and condos have been constructed in Estero, and more than 20 planned communities have been developed, including The Cascades, Pelican Sound, and Lighthouse Bay. During the housing boom, there was high demand for new condos and houses in Estero, but between 2006 and 2008, construction activity slowed down considerably. The housing market here has rebounded with force, as Estero is considered to be the hot place to invest in homes and property.

Development 

The town is located just north of Bonita Springs and Naples, and south of the city of Fort Myers. Its central location is just part of the community's appeal. In addition to convenience, Estero is also highly regarded in terms of its beauty and its well-planned development.

The Community Plan was created in 2001, with the following goal: "Estero's growth will be planned as a village, establishing defined areas for tasteful shopping, service and entertainment, while protecting and encouraging residential neighborhoods that encourage a sense of belonging. Weaving the community together will be carefully crafted limitations on strip commercial uses, inappropriate signage and certain undesired commercial uses, while additional design guidelines will be established to ensure attractive landscaping, streetscaping, architectural standards, and unified access points."

This mission has been very successful, with planners enforcing strict regulations for commercial development within the community. These rules have been implemented in order to maintain the aesthetics of the town and to reduce commercial development's effect on residents' quality of life.

History

Estero was originally a Caluses tribe settlement. Spanish explorers started visiting the area in the 1500s, and named the area after the Spanish word for "estuary." The Caluses people died out in the 1700s from diseases brought to the region by explorers and pirates. Citrus and cattle farmers arrived in the 1800s, and in 1904, a religious group called the Koreshans settled in the community as well. This sect remained in small numbers until the early 1960s, when the last living members gave their land to the State of Florida. This land is now preserved as the Koreshan State Historic Site and is a wonderful place to spend the day.
