Cypress Creek mall developer told to stabilize soil


Developer told to stabilize soil at mall site

Heavy equipment is back on the ground at Cypress Creek Town Center, but it's not because work is about to restart on the proposed mall. The mall developer is following orders from the Army Corps of Engineers to stabilize the soil to prevent further discharges into Cypress Creek. The corps suspended its permit for the mall in February after several incidents in which construction runoff polluted the creek. Corps officials say reinstatement of the permit is still under review, and a mall spokeswoman denied reports that the developer told tenants that work will resume "within weeks." There's no date set for when construction might restart, she said.


Judge to speak to

historical society

Judge Wayne L. Cobb will speak at the 7 p.m. Friday meeting of the Pasco County Historical Society. The group meets at the American Legion Hall, 37745 Church Ave. in Dade City. Cobb will share a history of the pioneering McMullen family of Pinellas County. Bring a covered dish to share, table service and a drink. Call Eddie Herrmann at (352) 567-2050 or Glenn Thompson at (352) 567-7449.


Grants will help market events

The Pasco Tourist Development Council expects to have about $79,000 to give out in grants for organizations that host events that bring overnight visitors to the county, officials said Tuesday. The events should promote recreation, and the grants must be used to market the events outside Pasco. Last year, the council funded 22 events, including Chasco Fiesta and the Longleaf Triathlon. Call (727) 847-8129 or go to for applications, which must be completed and submitted by July 31.


An article Wednesday misstated Annemarie Hammond's job title. She is an environmental lands coordinator for Pasco County.
