During the 12th annual Catch the Vision event at Cape Christian on Monday March 13th, attendees were given a firsthand look at the exciting developments that are set to take place throughout the city of Cape Coral. Hosted by Bill Johnson Jr. and Gloria Tate, the presentation took the sold-out crowd on a virtual tour of the city, showcasing what residents can expect to see in the coming years.
According to Tate, the future of Cape Coral is looking very promising, with a wide range of new housing options set to become available. She also highlighted the quality of the new developments, noting that the fact that restaurants from Naples and Fort Myers are coming to Cape Coral is a clear indication that the city is on the map.
Johnson also expressed his excitement at the level of growth that the city has experienced over the past five years, and he believes that there is a lot to look forward to in terms of both commercial and residential development. He specifically mentioned the Pine Island Corridor as an area of great potential for commercial development.
Prior to the main presentation, attendees had the opportunity to network with local businesses and entities via a trade show. With roughly 600 people in attendance, it was clear that there is a great deal of interest in the future of Cape Coral.
