Developers and builders will have an easier time working in Bonita Springs once a private firm assumes the city’s community development services.

With CH2M Hill, a Denver-based consultant, Bonita is promising a higher level of service, a shorter wait to receive permits and staff working in Bonita Springs, not Fort Myers.

After hours of debate, the Bonita Springs City Council Wednesday voted unanimously to hire CH2M Hill to handle its permitting and building inspections for $1.5 million.
