Plans for more rentals are in the hands of Fort Myers Beach town leaders.

The town council will meet Monday morning to decide whether to approve a plan by Myerside to convert a residential development area into commercial space at School Street and Estero Boulevard.

The area is described in the plan as “Hotel/Motel use, which shall mean the rental of any cottage for a stay of one night or longer.” With a maximum of 14 rental units.

If the plan is approved, it would include cottages, retail space, and a restaurant.
