The Blueprint Intergovernmental Agency has scheduled the Northeast Gateway: Welaunee Boulevard PD&E Study Traffic Modeling Information Session on December 3rd from 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm at Montford Middle School located at 5789 Pimlico Drive.
The long-awaited meeting is the next step in the public engagement process for the Northeast Gateway project which kicked-off back in March. The project, which connects a new road at Shamrock and Centerville Road and runs through Welaunee Plantation, has raised traffic concerns with the Killearn Homeowners Association and Killearn residents. The results of the traffic analysis will be crucial in the debate over how the project should proceed.
The KHA has taken a strong position against the project and has lobbied elected officials to change the direction of the new road. Elected officials have acknowledged the level of concern voiced by neighborhood residents and have said “nothing is a done deal.” However, new road is a voter approved Blueprint Project which means it will take more than a majority of the 12-member Blueprint Intergovernmental Agency to make any changes.
