I hope anyone reading this treasures the shade provided by the beautiful tress along Upper Tampa Bay Trail.
The Upper Tampa Bay Trail reigns supreme as the most popular place for Run Tampa runners to do long runs due, largely, to the fact that it is the only shaded trail option in the whole county, but also because of the water kiosks, restrooms, the pedestrian overpass (hillwork) and variety of entrance options due to various trail heads. We LOVE it!
Very Important! The realignment is up for vote again at the County Commission Meeting, Thursday, November 6th, at 9 a.m. Please come, and wear our Run Tampa shirt. 2nd floor, County Center, downtown.
To make it easier for people to provide feedback to their county commissioners, below is the text of the Comprehensive Plan. You can copy and paste it into emails. It the county commissioners were to approve any change, they would be in violation of the plan as stated below.
