The Fort Myers Beach pier, among other landmarks, was destroyed last year by Hurricane Ian. Now, there are plans to rebuild the beloved pier.

Digital renderings of a new pier were presented by Allen Shanosky and other dedicated Fort Myers residents during the Wednesday night town council meeting.

“I would like people to understand that they’re not what’s going to be built. They’re simple ideas,” said Shanosky. “The renderings were designed quickly, and it shows the two different options we’re willing to offer.”

There were two options for the pier presented during Wednesday’s meeting.

Option one would put the new pier in the same spot, making it longer and wider. Option two would relocate the pier and include an elevated plaza.

The digital renderings were presented during the Fort Myers Beach Town Council meeting at the Diamondhead Resort.
