Legacy Trail Extension Not Receiving SUNTrail Funding This Year

In June, Sarasota County and the Metropolitan Planning Organization submitted a major grant application to compete for portions of $25M in annual funding for trails as part of the Florida SUNTrails program.  We have just learned that the Legacy Trail Extension project did not qualify to receive any money this year from this program (press release). Grants were given to 45 other trail projects in Florida (see list).  
The SUNTrail program is only one of a number of possible sources of funding for the Legacy Trail Extension project.  Also, we will be able to apply for SUNTrail money again next year.
