2023 Annual Community Meeting In Depth
TEAM welcomed an enthusiastic audience to the Punta Gorda Isles Civic Association for its highly anticipated 2023 Annual Community Meeting. The event was organized by Vice President Betsy Spagnolo who served as moderator.

CEO Nancy Johnson, celebrating her tenth year at the helm, provided insights into TEAM's multi-faceted non profit initiatives with an engaging slide show.

Featured speaker was Sunseeker Resorts President and COO Micah Richin, pictured here with Nancy Johnson (l.) and Punta Gorda Mayor Lynne Matthews.

Nancy Johnson Discusses
Punta Gorda Development
Development is on the table again in Punta Gorda. We can’t stop it, but we can manage it. Issues such as parking, height, density, and traffic are all in the mix. We’d love to see more retail in our downtown, to give the location and merchants a shot in the arm. Retail is coming but not necessarily downtown. Fisherman’s Village, long a good partner and economic engine for this city, has a sweeping proposal with food for thought.
