RIVERVIEW — The Planning Commission of Hillsborough County is updating the SouthShore Areawide Systems Plan and will hold a community meeting from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday in the cafeteria at Riverview High, 11311 Boyette Road.

The plan, developed in 2003, includes the communities of Apollo Beach, Balm, Boyette, Gibsonton, Riverview, Ruskin, Sun City Center, Wimauma and other rural SouthShore areas. This community meeting is being held to review findings from prior workshops and the proposed changes to the adopted community plan based on workshop discussions. At the previous workshops, participants examined specific challenges and opportunities in the SouthShore area.

The work was broken into several categories: transportation, environmental, economic development and cultural and historical. At the upcoming meeting, citizens will have the opportunity to review changes and ask questions about the ongoing process.

For more information, call Allison Yeh at (813) 273-3774, ext. 351, or Pedro Parra at (813) 273-3774, ext. 356.
