The waterfront area in Fort Myers

The Fort Myers City Council will get an update on the proposed Harborside event center and hotel project in Fort Myers at a 2 p.m. meeting today, the Press News reported.

Sarasota-based developer John Meshad has proposed a 175-room hotel along the Fort Myers waterfront; Fort Myers Mayor Randy Henderson has said the development should be larger — closer to 225 rooms, the paper said.

The meeting is open to the public, but not open for public comment, the News Press said. [News Press] –Guelda Voien
