Looks like the Hillsborough County Commission is going to kill the trail that would connect the Upper Tampa Bay Trail with the Suncoast Trail:
"PLEASE be aware that on the agenda for the BOCC meeting THIS WEDNESDAY 2/4/09 is a request to remove previous BOCC action aligning Phase IV of the Upper Tampa Bay Trail on the (final?) piece of property needed north of Petersen Road to make the eventual connection to the Suncoast Trail.
"As you can see on the agenda write up attached, the property owner "now desires to subdivide the property without inclusion of the trail corridor..." I can only assume there is some Board and/or Administration support for this devastating suggestion.
"I apologize for not notifying advocates of the trail sooner but this issue was just brought to my attention. It looks to be on the agenda immediately after Consent Items which I'm not sure require discussion. I've attached the entire agenda.
