These shots were taken Sunday afternoon on 12th Ave. from Sligh southward on the east side of the street down to the end of McDugald Field by Greenspace committee chair Myron Griffin.
The committee has been working on getting a sidewalk connector from SESH up 12th street to Patterson Park on the Hilsborough River. The City gave us bad news this year that we were removed from the budget but would be given consideration for the 2011 budget. Imagine our surprise when we noticed concrete forms on 12th avenue at MacDugal park.
It turns out that there had been an ADA complaint regarding the area and the City responded by adding sidewalk just down the length of the park. While this is not part of the Seminole Heights Trail effort, we always welcome new sidewalk in the neighborhood. It is quite rare in our area.
In the mean time, the Greenspace committee is working with Ybor Heights, Tampa Heights, and greater Seminole Heights to craft an even larger sidewalk network that may connect to the high-speed rail line planned for the area.
