Operational Adjustments

Lee County offices and operations are open, although some locations remain unavailable for typical operation due to storm damage or are in use as a recovery site. For additional information see below:

  • The permitting lobby for the Lee County Department of Community Development, 1500 Monroe St., Fort Myers, will adjust lobby hours of operation to 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays beginning Tuesday, Jan. 3

  • Pine Island residents who do not have transportation to the downtown Fort Myers permitting office, the county is setting up a temporary, weekly LeeTran service beginning Thursday, April 6. Here's how it works:
    • Permit applicants must schedule a Thursday appointment online through the Community Development website. The appointment must be between the hours of 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.
    • Applicants must then request transportation by calling LeeTran at 239-533-8726 at least 24-hours in advance of their scheduled Thursday appointment.
    • The LeeTran shuttle will leave from the Pine Island Public Library, 10701 Russell Road, Bokeelia, with service beginning at 9 a.m. The shuttle service will run every 90 minutes for residents with appointments to and from the DCD permitting office.
    • Parking at the library and the shuttle roundtrip ride are free.
    • LeeTran will continue the shuttle service until the last scheduled customer is returned.
    • Continuation of the service will be contingent on demand.

Processing emergency permits remains the priority.
