The Pasco County Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) is holding a Public Information Open House for the Withlacoochee State Trail Connector Planning Study on Thursday, August 10, 2017 starting at 6 p.m. The event will take place at the Historic Pasco County Courthouse in Dade City.
The study will identify the preferred trail alignment alternative to connect the future northern extension of the Hardy Trail that will end at Lock Street in Dade City, to the southern terminus of the Withlacoochee State Trail Trailhead on the west side of US 301 (approximately 5 miles). It will also identify the preferred alternative to connect the current southern terminus of the Hardy Trail in Dade City to the existing trail along US 301 that currently ends at Dade City Avenue (approximately 1 mile).
The purpose of the Open House is to allow the public to review several possible alignments of the future trail and to provide options and other information that may be useful in development of the alignment alternatives.
This is the second of several public meetings being held in conjunction with this project. Anyone interested in the study is encouraged to attend the open house to provide input, share information and ask questions. Interested parties are welcome to stop by any time between 6:00 and 7:00 p.m. A brief presentation will be made at approximately 6:15 p.m.
A map of the trail study area and proposed alignments for consideration is included with this notice. Representatives from the Pasco County Planning and Development, MPO and the consulting team will be in attendance to take comments, address any issues, and help answer questions.
