The Sarasota County Commissioners will discuss the results of the Feasibility Study to Extend The Legacy Trail to Downtown Sarasota at their April 1st meeting. We hope that discussion will lead a decision on how best to move forward. It is important for everyone that supports the Trail Extension to attend this meeting and show your silent but support by wearing your yellow Trail Extension shirt. We want the Commissioners to see a lot of yellow in the audience!
The Feasibility Study discussion is scheduled for the morning session which begins at 9 am Wednesday April 1 at the Commission Chambers – First Floor – County Administration Center – 1660 Ringling Blvd – Downtown Sarasota. There will likely be numerous items on the agenda, and we will not know the order of topics, so please plan to be there for the 9 am start.
We hope the County Commissioners will take the next step forward, which we believe centers on commissioning an independent property appraisal of the rail corridor with CSX Corporation (the current property owner), and the Trust for Public Land (negotiated the 2004 sale of the rail corridor from CSX to Sarasota County that became The Legacy Trail).
