A Go Hillsborough public forum is being hosted at the USF Tampa Campus. This is a special opportunity to participate in sustainable transportation planning. The forum is being held at the Engineering II Bldg. Hall of Flags on Tuesday, May 12, 8-9:30 a.m. This free interactive workshop is open to USF students, staff, and faculty, and the public.
Hillsborough County is facing some tough choices related to transportation. There are significant shortfalls in funding as the population expands and congestion increases. Help from the public is needed to create a Community Transportation Plan. At the May 12th GoHillsborough forum, County engineers and planners, and staff from HART (Hillsborough Area Regional Transit) will be there to hear your opinion.
GoHillsborough is an initiative of the Transportation for Economic Development Policy Leadership Group, which includes all seven Hillsborough County Commissioners; the mayors of Plant City, Tampa and Temple Terrace; and the chair of the HART board. For more information, GoHillsborough can be found at gohillsborough.org and can be followed on Facebook, and on Twitter @GoHillsborough. You may submit comments by calling the Comment Line at (813) 274-6922. For more information, contact Sara Hendricks. This forum has been sponsored by the New North Transportation Alliance, a community partnership that includes USF and other major employers in the USF area.
