Dear County Commissioners,
SWFBUD will be attending a Hillsborough County information meeting tonight regarding the proposed trail to connect the Upper Tampa Bay Trail with the Suncoast Trail. For nearly the past five years, SWFBUD has advised the Hillsborough County Commission to move forward with connecting these two regional trails and the connector trail is a top priority in the MPO bike trail plans.
I am speaking on behalf of the thousands of bicyclists represented by SWFBUD's retail bicycle shops in advising you to please connect these two trails. For years, this has been discussed and the connection of the two trails is a long time coming.
I hope you can attend tonight's meeting on the status of the connector trail that would link the Upper Tampa Bay Trail with the Suncoast Trail.
Director of SWFBUD -- South West Florida Bicycle United Dealers
