Regional development to be CCCIA meeting topic

By Staff | Nov 6, 2014

Five local government officials with a message about regional growth will be the special guests of the Cape Coral Construction Industry Association for its November dinner meeting at Palmetto Pine Country Club.

Cape Coral Mayor Marni Sawicki and City Manager John Szerlag will speak for the city and share the message of working together with Lee County Manager Roger Desjarlais, County Commissioner Larry Kiker and Lee County Attorney Richard Wesch.

The meeting starts at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 13, for a social hour followed by dinner and the program at 6:30.

“Kiker and Sawicki have been meeting and will be sharing how Cape Coral and the county governments have come together to work on common goals,” said CCCIA executive director Bill Johnson. “Cape Coral used to be its own little world, but Mayor Sawicki has been very good at trying to open us up regionally to the county and help promote more regional projects.”

The new “regionalism” approach between the Cape and the county strives to attract a new generation of businesses and residents to the area.

Reservations are required by Nov. 12. The cost of tickets is $30 for CCCIA members and $45 for non-members. Reservations and payment can be done online through www.cccia.org and click on events.
