If you answered YES to these questions then we need your help. We need two things:

2) You to spread the word. Share this page, Facebook, Twitter, Email
In August 2013, the Sarasota County Commissioners authorized Public Works to spend $72,251 (reduced from earlier estimate of $75,000) on an initial study for the expansion of the trail. The study will cost just over $150,000, and the County is looking to Legacy Trail supporters for the additional funds. We need YOUR help to raise the additional dollars and get the project started.
The study will take about 6 months to complete. After that we will work to get the project "shovel ready." Once the project is ready to go we will be able to ask for State and Federal funds to build the trail.
It's GO Time and we need YOUR help.
