FORT MYERS, Fla. - With big projects like the new river basin being constructed and several restaurants putting the finishing touches on their buildings, downtown Fort Myers is becoming a hot spot once again. A tough economic swing forced businesses to close and let go of employees. And while the economic picture is not much brighter now, there is a push to get patrons pounding the pavement again. It seems to be working. Rodman Jones, tells WINK News he just moved to the area and likes sampling the food from the many restaurants. Eva Byrne from Cape Coral says when she first started coming to downtown Fort Myers, "there was nothing down here. No restaurants or people." She says she is excited to see the change.
