Pasco County workshop to study transfer of development rights


County to meet on Development rights transfer

The County Commission will hold a workshop from 1 to 5 p.m. Nov. 16 to discuss the possible creation of a "Transfer of Development Rights" program in Pasco County. The concept, known as TDR, would allow landowners to transfer the development rights from their rural properties to allow greater-density projects in designated urban areas — with the goal of preserving some open spaces and avoiding urban sprawl. Commissioners will hear from several experts at their workshop at the Pasco-Hernando Community College West Campus Conference Center, 10230 Ridge Road. For information on the workshop, call Carol Clark, Pasco County Growth Management, at (727) 847-8193, ext. 8419.


CARES to celebrate early Veterans Day

CARES will hold an early Veterans Day Celebration at 11 a.m. Nov. 9 at the Rao Musunuru, M.D. Enrichment Center 12417 Clock Tower Parkway. Members of the Holiday branch of the Veterans of Foreign Wars will conduct the Honor Ceremony. Mildred Wilson, the widow of a Tuskegee Airman, will bring his awards and medals for viewing and speak briefly about the airmen, and Betty Fankel will talk about her days dancing for the U.S.O. There also will be a presentation by representatives from Assisted Living Benefits, Inc., a Belleair Bluffs firm, which specializes in helping veterans and others obtain assisted living benefits. For more information, call the center at (727) 863-6868.

The event runs from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and will include a formal flag ceremony, blowing of the shofar, and lots of food, inflatables for the kids, barbers and portable showers, and information about many other services. For information or to help, contact the Rev. Morson Livingston at (813) 951-2288 or [email protected]
