The Witches Promise

Cape Coral News

It was just last week, Friday to be exact. And while a new business launching in Cape Coral isn't anything out of the ordinary, this was not a new business. So, why would a business that wasn't new hold an opening ceremony? Let's just say that the timing had to be perfect. Opening doors for business is, certainly, a cause for some celebration! But, for those who are not aware, the Red Headed Witches is a business that has been growing in Cape Coral for several years. To say that any business trying to find a perfect location faces a challenge would be true! However, where the Red Headed Witches are concerned, they needed to find a fitting home for their very unique costume business! With their most recent move into their location at 1910 Del Prado Boulevard, the Red Headed Witches realized that they had, in fact, found precisely the right home!

Growing Frangipani in SWFL

Cape Coral News

It is likely that many southwest Florida residents know or have heard of the Frangipani tree and it's colorful history. However, Plumeria, the less common name for the Frangipani, is *a genus of flowering plants in the dogbane family and related to the Oleander.  Within that genus are seven or eight species of deciduous shrubs and small trees, all of which are referred to as Frangipani. These species are commonly found growing in Central and South America, as well as Mexico and the West Indies. The trees have actually been seen growing as far south as Brazil. What is surprising is the fact that Frangipani can, actually, be grown in most tropical and sub-tropical regions!

Cape Council Approves Beach at Four Freedoms Park

Cape Coral News

It has not been a long time coming. In fact, the project has actually come together reasonably quickly. The Cape Coral Community Redevelopment Agency proposed beach at Four Freedoms Park in Cape Coral appears to be on track for becoming a reality. Initially proposed last year during the introduction of the CRA's 2030 Future Vision Plan, the project has become a primary focus for them. Despite the inability of the CRA to avail themselves of Tourist Development Council funding, CRA Chairman Don Heisler has said that his organization will provide the nearly $42,000 necessary to secure the project.

Cape Council drowns Aquatic Center / approves Village Square

Cape Coral NewsIn what could only be described as an exhausting 12-hour session, the Cape Coral City Council voted against approval of the proposed Aquatic Center in a 5-3 vote. Many Cape Coral residents were supportive of the proposed center and believed that it offered the community both an opportunity for national recognition that it has lacked, as well as a positive economic impact on the city. While council was not in support of the swim center, they took relatively little time to approve the Village Square mixed-use project for the downtown area. The availability of necessary funding for the respective projects seemed to dictate their differing outcomes.
