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.
