As Southwest Florida approaches the first anniversary of Hurricane Ian, Fort Myers Beach continues to recover from the devastating storm.

Visitors of Fort Myers Beach can see the town is in the process of recovery, as onlookers can still see destroyed structures, debris and abandoned areas.

The resilient residents of Fort Myers Beach are still in the process of rebuilding following Ian.

The latest sign of recovery is the recent installation of a new clock on Times Square, which is set to be unveiled on the anniversary date of Hurricane Ian’s touchdown, Thursday.

The Fort Myers Beach Town Hall was recently demolished to make way for a new structure, however; the Town Council will hold a meeting Monday morning to discuss several topics.

This meeting will be held at the Diamond Head Resort located at 2000 Estero Blvd. and began at 5 p.m., Monday.

WINK News will report new developments when it becomes available.
