From the Naples Daily News: The Rotary Club of Bonita Springs, Rotary Club of Bonita Springs Noon and the City of Bonita Springs have purchased a 14’ two-face Rotary clock tower to be placed near the NE intersection of Childers Street and Old 41 across from Riverside Park.
Both Rotary Clubs worked with the Art in Public Places Advisory Board of the City of Bonita Springs and the developer of the new downtown area to select a prominent location for the clock. “We see this as a local landmark meeting place for the people of Bonita Springs, as they traverse Old 41 and explore the new downtown,” said Bob Lombardo from the Rotary Club of Bonita Springs.
Tom Briers, President of the Rotary Club of Bonita Springs summed it up by saying, “This will be a fun family gathering place on the new sidewalks across from Riverside Park.”
According to Arleen Hunter, Director of Development Services for the City of Bonita Springs, “The Rotary Clock is set to be delivered in March 2016; and there will be an inauguration ceremony in April around the time of Celebrate Bonita.”
