Dean Park is an approved/designated historical neighborhood in the northeastern part of the City of Fort Myers, Florida. The neighborhood was included in the Citywide Traffic Calming project in 2003. The result of that project established a modest traffic calming plan within the neighborhood to minimize cut-through and control speeding. The neighborhood abuts First Street, which is heavily developed with condominiums along the Caloosahatchee River. The plan, formalized in 2008 and completed in 2010, included several intersection choker designs to further enhance and create the historic neighborhood; identify the closing of a portion of Cranford Avenue to form a triangular park in the central part of the neighborhood; and, several four-way stop intersections to be constructed as raised intersections. The plan was also developed in conjunction with the City’s plans for massive neighborhood drainage improvements, for which they obtained a grant from FEMA.
