Access to North Fort Myers Lagoon for non-residents part of the development

Brightwater by Metro, an ambitious residential community in North Fort Myers, will provide limited paid public access to a five-acre lagoon originally planned as a water amenity for homebuyers.

The planned public access for the lagoon was revealed during a commission zoning hearing to consider increasing the number of units from the 1,275 units approved in 2004 to 1,475 homes. The additional units were made possible through changes to the county’s land use plan.
