THE COST COULD ADD UP TO 1 POINT 5 MILLION DOLLARS.

LET'S BREAK DOWN THIS LENGTHY PROCESS FOR YOU.

ALMOST 450 THOUSAND VOTERS ACROSS TWO COUNTIES MUST HEAD BACK TO THE POLLS.

THE EARLIEST THIS CAN HAPPEN IS APRIL.

JUNE AT THE LATEST.

THERE WILL BE A PRIMARY BEFORE A GENERAL ELECTION. Return to index of stories...

BIG.

BOLD.

AND BRAND NEW.

BUT WHEN IT COMES TO PARKING.

I think it sucks

PAULA FAYECHATMAN HAS A HARD TIME MAKING HER WAY FROM HER CAR TO THE FRONT OF THE DOWNTOWN FORT MYERS LIBRARY.

think about the elderly who can't walk over there. The disabled. Where do they have to go?

BUT SHE'S NOT THE ONLY ONE WITH WOES -

PEOPLE SEARCHING FOR THAT PERFECT SPOT FIND THEMSELVES FIRED UP.

driving around a few times, had to wait for a car to move. Then they were jammed in there. I finally paid for parking because there was nothing in the lot.

THE LIBRARY SYSTEM DIRECTOR SAYS THE PARKING IS BY DESIGN -

we wanted to maximize a space for people.

SO VISITORS WOULD BE FORCED TO WALK THE STREETS OF DOWNTOWN FORT MYERS AND SEE WHAT THE CITY HAS TO OFFER.

AND IT *DOES WORK FOR FOLKS LIKE ANINA BACHRACH.

I am so tickled - I found a linen store. I would have never known. And now the new Goodwill.

SHELDON KAYE DOES ADMIT ONE FLAW.

parking for people with disabilities is a challenge and that is troublesome to me.

SOMETHING HE WILL WORK ON - FOR VISITORS LIKE FAYCHATMAN.

WHILE OTHERS WILL HAVE TO WALK.

it's nice, a nice new library. But we had more parking at the old library. Return to index of stories...

COLD FRONT ON THE WAY

Another round of fog is possible again this evening. As temperatures cool before midnight we could see some areas in southwest Florida with reduced visibility for a time. This fog forecast for tonight is not quite the same as last night, because a cold front is moving down the peninsula and should help to break up the fog a little sooner. The front will arrive tomorrow and linger through Thursday. Our weather will likely be very different on Wednesday and Thursday versus what we saw today. Cloudy skies are expected, temperatures will be lower, wind picks up a little, and. some rain showers are possible. The best chance for showers to develop will be late in the day on Wednesday. There will likely be on / off showers on Thursday. Temperatures for the next 2 days will cool into the 60's during the day and into the low 50's at night.

But take heart. the long-range forecast looks just fine for the weekend! Sunshine will start to return on Friday and by Saturday/Sunday we will be back in the 80's with mostly sunny weather. Return to index of stories...
