Sunshine Citizens says
Meeting location: Board of County Commission Chambers, 2nd Floor

Friends, as part of our ongoing efforts to educate our elected officials and to remind them that they need to hear and respond to constituent desires, we are asking everyone to turn out to the September Metropolitan Planning Organization board meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 1

Please speak at the meeting and tell the board that the Tampa Bay Express (TBX) project still needs to be removed from the Transportation Improvement Plan (TIP) because it:
- Destroys irreplaceable community assets
- Hurts local business
- Will not relive congestion but cause more of it with 15 more years of endless highway construction
- Introduces variable rate toll lanes – a model that is failing all over the country, and in Florida is already failing on FDOT projects in Miami
- Takes away existing lanes and converts them to toll lanes that will cost up to $10 one way in peak times
- Is short-sighted and over-priced – For $9 billion dollars we could build comprehensive transit and efficiently move people and goods through Hillsborough County

Tell these officials just how wrong TBX is for our community, city and county.

Ask them: Why did you vote to approve TBX? Why did you ignore your constituents?

Apparently, they did not read the plan nor did they question FDOT.
Read up on the issue at www.StopTBX.com and tell them why you are opposed to this $9 billion fiasco.

Public comments are at beginning of agenda - so it will only take a few minutes! Please remind our Elected officials that we are not going away, and we will be heard!
Tell your friends, family, neighbors, co-workers to join you!
