City officials look to spend $50k on sculpture in Cape Coral roundabout

CAPE CORAL, Fla. — Cape Coral has plans to add some beauty to one of its best roads in south Cape.

The city’s Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) wants to spend $50,000 for a sculpture in the roundabout at Southeast 47th Terrace and Vincennes Boulevard.

Last year, the CRA proposed adding a new sculpture there. Cape Coral officials created the roundabout at Vincennes and 47th in 2019.

Today the CRA wants the City Council to approve the interlocal agreement, which allocates funding for the project.

People who live and work nearby say more art is great and they’re happy with how the city upgraded the area so far, but they feel that much money could be put to better use.

“I don’t know how much sculptures cost if that’s the going rate,” Shelly Fink said. “But for that kind of money, I think it could be put to better use in this community.”

“I think the idea of a sculpture is nice,” Mickey Rodriguez said. “I think the idea of $50,000 could probably be spent elsewhere.”

Officials won’t pick an artist to create the sculpture until this fall. The finished product would be placed in the roundabout next spring.
