The Development Services Division provides administrative review and issuance of development orders for site work activities for all commercial, industrial and multiple family developments and residential subdivisions located in the unincorporated areas of Lee County and within the limits of the Town of Fort Myers Beach.

In addition to providing review and issuance of development orders, the Division also reviews and processes applications for property subdivision plats and the formal vacation of easements and rights-of-way.

Prior to the submission of an application for development order approval, applicants are encouraged to schedule an informal meeting with Community Development staff members to discuss details of the proposed project and to obtain general guidance on the application process.  If you wish to schedule a staff informal meeting, you may fill out an Informal application online, or download and submit it via e-mail to or via fax to (239) 485-8344.
