FDOT Visioning Workshop #2 for 10th Avenue Complete Streets Study
from Riverside Drive to 17th Street West in Manatee County
The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), District One, is holding a second visioning workshop for the 10th Avenue Complete Streets Study from Riverside Drive to 17th Street West in Manatee County. This workshop was originally scheduled for September 12, 2017, but it has been rescheduled for November 7th due to Hurricane Irma.
The City of Palmetto, in cooperation with FDOT, is conducting a feasibility study for possible improvements to 10th Avenue in Manatee County. The feasibility study includes a comprehensive visioning process to develop viable improvement alternatives while facilitating community vision. The proposed ‘complete streets’ improvements on 10th Avenue are part of an overall plan by the City of Palmetto to enhance multimodal mobility along the roadway. The purpose of this workshop is to provide further information about the project and gather feedback about the proposed improvements.
The visioning workshop will be:
Date: Tuesday, November 7, 2017
Time: 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
Location: Woman’s Club of Palmetto
910 6th Street West

The workshop will include a PowerPoint presentation followed by open discussion. People attending the workshop may review project displays and aerial photographs, and speak one-on-one with project team members. FDOT solicits public participation without regard to race, color, national origin, age, sex, religion, disability, or family status. The environmental review, consultation, and other actions required by applicable federal environmental laws for this project are being, or have been, carried out by FDOT pursuant to 23 U.S.C. §327 and a Memorandum of Understanding dated December 14, 2016 and executed by the Federal Highway Administration and FDOT.
