Photo Gallery: Citizens Protest Sprawl's Impact on Traffic

Published Monday, April 21, 2014 12:04 am

BRADENTON -- Twice in the last three weeks, citizens have amassed near the Cortez Bridge in protest of the Manatee County Commission's liberal development policy. Taxpayers, particularly those in the Village of Cortez whose only east-west artery is routinely log-jammed to a standstill as mainlanders try to get out to the the beach on weekend, say that the continued permitting of massive new development projects is ruining their way of life. The board had told them to get used to it.

I agree that infrastructure must be able to support proposed development before a permit is issued. I also, agree that traffic studies, such as, those presented in support of the Proposed Long Bar Pointe Development, appear biased in favor of developers and not at all based in reality.
