Tampa Convention Center
Read the meeting agenda.

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) will launch the Florida Multi-use Corridors of Regional Economic Significance (M-CORES) program at a kick-off event August 27 at the Tampa Convention Center. The event will include the first meetings of the three M-CORES Task Forces, which will research three Florida corridors with the end goal of adding infrastructure to revitalize rural communities, encourage job creation, and provide regional connectivity while leveraging technology, enhancing quality of life and public safety.

As FDOT and the Task Force members accept this challenge from lawmakers, the Department understands the importance of public participation in the M-CORES process.

There will be four comment stations in the hallway of the Tampa Convention Center at the August 27 event where attendees can write down comments, type them into laptops, or tell them to a court reporter. The comment stations will be open all day, starting at 8:00 a.m. Another opportunity for public engagement will include a public comment period, starting at 4:45 p.m.

FDOT encourages all Floridians to attend. If anyone can’t attend the M-CORES kick-off, there will be many more opportunities for in-person participation. The Department will release a tentative meeting schedule soon.

After the kick-off event, the Department will proactively notify citizens about all upcoming Task Force meetings and public workshops.
