FT. MYERS, FL. CORNOG PLAZA

Southwest Airlines and Project for Public Spaces are working with the Lee County Library System to bring fresh Placemaking ideas to the recently-completed Cornog Plaza, located on the grounds of the new Ft. Myers Regional Library. PPS participated in the design of the new downtown library and developed the concepts for the public spaces. We are thrilled to be able to refine and augment our original work by assisting the Lee County Library System with transforming the new plaza into a vibrant community hub. Working with the Library community and the people who live, work, play and relax in downtown Ft. Myers, we will expand amenities, tailor events, identify library and other programs that best utilize the new spaces around the library.

The goal of this effort is to establish Cornog Plaza as a welcoming downtown anchor and a great place that can serve as an inspiring new model of a dynamic urban space in Southwest Florida.

Through a multi-year partnership with Project for Public Spaces (PPS), the pioneering organization behind Placemaking, Southwest Airlines is committed to leveraging the power of Placemaking to strengthen connections between people and the places they share and to spark social, economic, and environmental benefits in communities across the country.
