Estero will seek $2 million from the state to create a river walk along the Estero River.
The village will ask for an appropriation from the state legislature during the 2020 session.
Appropriations are part of the process of passing the state budget. State lawmakers can authorize spending money for specific purposes or projects through appropriations.
The money, if the village receives it, would go towards creating public access to the Estero River on the 62 acres of land Estero purchased in January, said Estero Village Manager Steve Sarkozy. The village acquired the property for $24.5 million.
