Many neighbors were in attendance at the December 4th dedication of the first leg of the South Tampa Greenway in Gadsden Park. Many of us are looking forward to the next link between MacDill and Bayshore along the MacDill AFB Boundary. We remember a hotly contested townhome project a few years ago that threatened to derail that portion of the trail. But for the efforts of the Ballast Point neighborhood association, that portion of the Greenway may have been lost. A deal was struck with developers for an easement, and the City continued to work with the AFB in the aftermath of 9/11. Thanks to Sally Flynn and Dan Thornbrugh, members of the Greensway’s Citizens Advisory committee who remain dedicated to Greenways and look out for our interest and other efforts on behalf of Parks and open space.
