Public Hearing

Despite overwhelming public opposition, the legislature passed, and the Governor signed a bill to create three new major toll roads that will destroy large swaths of Florida’s last remaining rural lands, pollute waterways, and threaten endangered wildlife including the iconic Florida panther. The “No Roads to Ruin” Coalition is not interested in just making this horrible proposal less disastrous or getting a “better” route for these unneeded and destructive toll roads. Our aim is to stop this new toll road debacle in its tracks. Join us on Tuesday, August 27 to send a loud clear NO ROADS TO RUIN message to FDOT! Right now this meeting is scheduled to go from 8 am-8 pm at the Tampa Convention Center, with a morning plenary session (including all three task forces), a lunch break from 11 am to 12:30 pm, three separate task force sessions in the afternoon, and public comment beginning at 4:45 pm. If you can only come for a portion of the day, please be there for the public comment session.
