Growth in SW Florida and Answers to the Questions You Were Afraid To Ask.

Our guest speaker, Wayne Daltry, is a cultural and environmental icon in SWFL - Come meet Lee County’s resident sage, futurist, historian, sociologist, demographer, and consensus-builder. He is a great storyteller and is sure to be entertaining as well as insightful.

He is a great storyteller and is sure to be entertaining as well as insightful. Before retiring as director of Lee County's Smart Growth Department in 2010, Wayne spent 27 years with the Southwest Florida Regional Planning Council — 20 as executive director. He was honored by his profession with lifetime achievement awards from 3 professional organizations. Married, two children, veteran, churchgoer (on occasion), Rotarian, and voted in every election since 1970.

"A committed-yet-pragmatic environmentalist, Daltry is known for big-picture thinking, as well as conversational riffs on philosophy, history, politics, literature, geography and human nature." ~ Fort Myers News Press
