Dr. Eileen Holden, president of Polk Communtiy College, and representatives of the team planning two proposed new roads, Bartow Northern Connector and the Central Polk Parkway, will be featured at an upcoming Clear Springs Public Workshop.
The workshop will be held on Thursday June 19, at 6 p.m. at the Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranch at 3350 State Road 60 East.
It also will feature an update by the Clear Springs staff and consultant team on the plans in progress and offer the opportunity for participants to ask questions and make suggestions about the Clear Springs Sector Plan.
Holden will report on the progress of the plans for a new Corporate College program being funded by the Clear Springs Project, as part of its corporate park development plan.
The Bartow Northern Connector is a new roadway being developed by Polk County that will connect U.S. 98, U.S. 17, and State Road 60 near the Clear Springs project.
The Central Polk Parkway, under study by the Florida Department of Transportation, may connect State Road 60 west to the Polk Parkway and east to U.S. Highway 27. These new roadways would impact the area near the Clear Springs sector plan site in East Bartow.
