Fort Myers seeks to become more walkable, affordable
FORT MYERS, Fla. The city is seeking help from a White House initiative to add affordable housing and become more pedestrian-friendly.
The city has applied for assistance from the National Resource Network, a program that helps cities develop growth plans through research.
