TR has learned that the Killearn Homes Association (KHA) has sent a letter to all elected officials on the City and County Commissions and to the Chair of the Capital Regional Transportation Planning Agency (CRTPA) raising concerns about the “Killearn Corridor” proposal.
The letter was signed by KHA President and former City Commissioner John Paul Bailey. The full letter can be seen here: KHALetter.
The letter is in response to a presentation made by a transportation consulting firm hired by the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT). The presentation outlined the “Killearn Corridor” proposal as one of two options that would successfully address traffic congestion in the Thomsaville Road and I-10 area.
The letter, said in part, “After having studied the proposed options, we, the board members of KHA, are deeply concerned about the impact of these options on our neighborhood, especially a particularly egregious option that would create a four-lane connection through our community.”
The letter concludes by saying “We urge FDOT and our local commissioners and government officials to explore alternatives that are less intrusive.
The CRTPA will take up the issue at their meeting on Monday, May 16th at 1:00 p.m. in the City of Tallahassee Commission Chambers.
