Public Hearing

The  Westshore Regional Multimodal Center Project Development & Environment (PD&E) study process provides opportunities for the public to view information about the project and to comment on the proposed improvements. Public involvement activities will continue throughout the duration of the project. Project information and documents are uploaded to the project website for review when they become available.

A public hearing was held on July 17, 2014. Department representatives were available beginning at 5:00 p.m. to answer questions and discuss the project informally. Draft project documents and other project-related materials were displayed and a PowerPoint presentation ran continuously during the open house. A court reporter was available to receive comments in a one-on-one setting. At 6:00 p.m., FDOT representatives began the formal portion of the hearing, which provided an opportunity for attendees to make formal oral public comments. Following the formal portion of the hearing, the informal open house resumed and continued until 7:00 p.m. Participants were able to submit written comments or other exhibits, in place of or in addition to oral comments, at the hearing. Comments will also be accepted by mail or via the project website.

If you have questions about the project or the hearing materials, please contact Elba Lopez, FDOT Project Manager. Her contact information is shown on the Contact Information page.
