Hole Montes shareholder Barry E. Jones appointed to Estero’s planning board

Barry JonesNAPLES, Fla. (April 22, 2021) – Hole Montes Shareholder Barry E. Jones, P.E., has been named to the Village of Estero’s newly formed Planning, Zoning and Design Board.

Jones, who has 28 years of experience in civil engineering, has served on the Estero Design Review Board for six years, chairing the body for the previous three years. The Planning, Zoning and Design Board combines Estero’s previous Design Review Board with its Planning and Zoning Board.

The Planning, Zoning and Design Board is responsible for reviewing applications for rezoning, comprehensive plan amendments, site plan approvals and similar items for conformance with the Village Land Development Code and Comprehensive Plan. Building design, architecture and landscaping are of particular importance in maintaining Estero’s quality of life.

“We encourage everyone at Hole Montes to take an active role in the community, whether it’s serving on boards, volunteering or supporting charitable causes,” said Bob Mulhere, president of Hole Montes. “As soon as Estero residents voted to incorporate, Barry stepped forward in a leadership role to help guide the village’s emergence from an unincorporated area between Naples and Fort Myers into one of Southwest Florida’s premier lifestyle communities.”

Jones joined Hole Montes in 2015 after serving in a variety of roles for engineering firms, design groups, utilities and development companies. Jones earned a Bachelor of Science degree in civil engineering from the University of Florida and is a member of the American Society of Civil Engineers and the Florida Engineering Society.
