The Fort Myers Beautification Advisory Board is one of the most effective advisory groups in the history of The City of Fort Myers. 

Fort Myers has 25 public art works within the city. The Fort Myers Beautification Advisory Board has been the sponsor of 21 of them.

The resent contributions of the Fort Myers Beautification Advisory Board began in 1982 with the restoration of the 'Spirit of Fort Myers' the entrance to Edison Park. Shortly after came the bust of Henry Ford directly across from the Edison Park entrance and then the restoration of 'The Tootie McGregor Monument'. In 1984 the Fort Myers Beautification Advisory Board approved the 'Sunset Plaza' at Centennial park and 'Uncommon Friends'by sculptor D.J. Wilkins. 89 saw he 'Harborside Collection' installed. Seven of the most influential people to have effected Fort Myers.

The concept of honoring our own people has been a consistent theme with the Fort Myers Beautification Advisory Board.In 2000 the monument to the 2nd Regiment Infantry US Colored Troops was unveiled in Centennial Park on the river in Fort Myers.  Then coach Wes Nott was memorialized at Wes Knott Park on US 41  in 2001 in a lifesized statue.

The most recent contribution of the Fort Myers Beautification Advisory Board is 'The Patrons of The City of Palms' memorial in the heart of the city. It's designed to ensconce the names of those who care for their history and their families part in it.
