It's happening folks! The River-to-Sea Loop dreaming is becoming a reality. On June 27 a productive workshop, organized by Volusia Parks, was held at DeBary Hall. Tim Baylie and his Parks and Recreation Team hosted the event. Other speakers included Heather Garcia from FDOT, Maggie Ardito and Herb Hiller from the SJR2C Loop Alliance, Tara McCue from ECFRPC, Kelly White Daytona City Commissioner. From Brevard Sarah Kraum, Edyie McCall and Michael Garau all presented. Brevard got a lot of kudos for their active and effective C2C/SJR2C Leadership Group lead by the Sarah of Space Coast TPO. Tim also kicked off the challenging but urgent issue of branding the SJR2C.
I especially liked Heather Garcia's (FDOT District 5) Presentation where she played "Happy Trails" to get everyone in the right spirit! Heather is FDOT District 5's SJR2C Loop Project Manager, and the one that managed to get so many awesome projects kicked off in time to get SUNTrail funding! Kudos to Heather! I wish I'd been on my toes and got some good photos of her talk.
