I want to commend these charged with recognizing the added security worth of establishing a multipurpose street between US 19 and Fort Island Seaside.
Citrus County has at all times been a highly regarded vacation spot for outside actions reminiscent of biking, kayaking, boating / fishing / scallop and mountaineering. With that comes the duty to create and keep a stage of safety required to mitigate danger for these of us who get pleasure from these actions. The residents and guests who profit from these actions help our native economic system and lots of companies profit straight and not directly from these actions.
When COVID-19 hit tourism took successful, however for many people locals it elevated the above actions to be able to get pleasure from our lives in a safer and more healthy manner. Sooner or later, many consider this may very well be the brand new regular, and with the summer season season shortly approaching, I count on to see much more necessary outside actions.
A multi-use path can be being mentioned to attach Sugarmill Woods to the present Suncoast Parkway path system, one other nice concept. This prompted me to name three of our county commissioners that I do know personally to ask for info on the potential for constructing a parallel path to Halls River Street from US 19 on the entrance to Riverhaven and presumably extending the brand new sidewalk. lately accomplished in Outdated Homosassa, once more for security causes. I used to be informed that the fee would take into account this initiative offered it had the help of residents of the speedy space and frequent guests.

So far, we now have obtained over 150 signatures supporting this initiative in addition to a 90% constructive response to a survey created on-line utilizing the Nextdoor app.
Myself and a number of other others are planning to attend the committee assembly on April 13 to supply the help of many within the hope of securing the help of the board of administrators to maneuver this initiative ahead. As one commissioner informed me, there is no higher time than now with cash from the CARES fund for capital enhancements and infrastructure tasks.
