Like Albers, Ed Zapke, president of the South Charlotte County Coalition, said FDOT's reconsideration of speed limits was good news.
More than two years ago, the coalition of homeowner associations approached the Charlotte County-Punta Gorda Metropolitan Planning Organization, which allocates the county's share of state and federal transportation money, and FDOT to reconsider the speed limits.At the time, Zapke said, FDOT engineers did a traffic survey and didn't think a change was warranted.
"The issue came back up as the area saw more development," he said.

Ed Zapke, South Charlotte County Coalition Board Appointee The South Charlotte County Coalition is a coalition of property owner associations from the Peace River southward, formed in 2003. Its mission is to enable, enhance and improve the quality of life for the residents of south Charlotte County. When the coalition was formed, it identified items of interest which included beautification, water management, traffic, evacuation, green space, emergency services and taxes among others.

While teaching, Ed was moderator and advisor to several clubs and activities. He coached football, swimming and baseball and umpired baseball. During the summer breaks, he sailed extensively in New England. His sailing experience includes both cruising and racing. He also had the opportunity to sail the bi-annual Marion (MA) to Bermuda race.

Ed Zapke
Ed Zapke is assuredly one of those people.
Years ago, Ed worked with Dave Phelen and Pete McLewin to expand the voice of area Homeowner Associations by representing them with one voice.
Ed serves on the Board of the SCCC/MPO and acts as its' liaison on the PGICA Board.
He volunteers countless hours of his time year after year representing us without fanfare or monetary reward.
In 1967, Ed married Maureen. She was a social worker, but prior to retirement worked for a hospice caring for patients from infants to the elderly.
Ed taught math…remedial to calculus from seventh grade to college. He was Chairman of his Math Department, President of the Suffolk County Teachers' Association and went on to a State Supervisor's Association position. He wrote curriculum for local and state agencies and gained a wealth of experience working with Boards and political entities. After a teaching career of thirty years, Ed, with wife Maureen at his side searched for warmer weather and followed friends south to Punta Gorda in 1999.
As President of PGICA in 2003, he helped formulate the move out of our West Marion location, a superb decision we remain grateful for today.
We thank him for continuously striving to improve the quality of life in our community. His quick mind and sage advice remain wonderful assets for the people he quietly and unselfishly chooses to serve.
If you, like Ed Zapke are interested in the future of our community, you are invited to attend either or both.
