About 25 residents were in attendance to hear the discussion which included information about the overall trail which will connect to the existing trail network on the island and eventually extend off-island.
County Engineer, Robert Companion, also shared information about Phase One which will span from S. Fletcher Avenue to Via Del Ray. This phase is anticipated to being in the summer of 2022. Funding is being provided by the Florida Department of Transportation through a Local Agency Program Agreement.
Residents in attendance seemed very pleased with the information that was presented, particularly when they learned that no trees or root systems will be impacted from this phase of the project. The goal is to also ensure that future phases also minimize or eliminate tree impacts wherever possible.
