This summit was proposed in December in response to the defeat of the “Fix Our Roads” sales tax initiative in November. There is a new initiative to get the additional sales tax on the ballot for 2014. Morgan Watkins with the Gainesville Sun originally reported the forthcoming summit back in December, and you can read her article here.

One of the County Planners gave a Transportation presentation to the Political Involvement Committee at GACAR. Click here to see that presentation.
