2011 proved to be a very busy year for the city of Cape Coral, but also for Greatest Cape! As a pre-eminent southwest Florida community, Cape Coral faced growing pains, budget shortfalls, planning and zoning issues, as well as elections for several seats on the city's council. While leadership within the ranks of the City Manager's office was called into question, the Economic Development Office also continued to struggle. As the local housing market continued to face the slump of new construction, low to medium priced existing home sales did see some growth. Given the up and down nature of the economy, local unemployment remained high.
Bearing witness to our community's growth, Greatest Cape spent 2011 undergoing changes, too. Facing 2012, Greatest Cape is poised to improve the quality and quantity of everything we offer to our site's members and visitors.
