Here’s an opportunity to get funds to support local multi-use trail building efforts in Florida, including the Legacy Trail Extension. The Rails to Trails Conservancy is circulating a petition to be submitted to the Florida Legislature to urge them to allocate some of the 2014 Amendment 1 – the Florida Water and Land Conservation Initiative – to trail building efforts across the state. The constitutional amendment was approved by 75% of the voters in the 2014 election, and is designed to dedicate 33 percent of the net revenue from existing excise tax collections. FLT urges you to sign the Rails to Trails petition with this link.
