Wekiva Trail Segment 5 (PD&E) Public Meeting
Tuesday, October 26, 2021
Lake County, in coordination with the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), invites you to a public meeting regarding the Wekiva Trail (Mount Dora to Tavares) Project Development & Environment (PD&E) Study.
The purpose of this project is to identify the concept and location for a new trail to fill the gap between the planned Wekiva Trail (Segment 1 – Mount Dora to Sorrento) and the existing Tav-Lee Trail (Tavares to Leesburg). The project has been part of Lake County’s Trail Master Plan since 2005 with the intent to construct a non-motorized, multi-use trail between the cities of Tavares and Mount Dora. The public meeting is being held to give interested persons an opportunity to review and comment on alterative concepts being analyzed for the project.
There are multiple ways for the community to participate in the meeting. All participants, regardless of the platform they choose, will participate in the same live meeting.
