Palmetto Trails Network Plan

The Palmetto Trails Network Plan (PTNP) is a regional system of transportation improvements made up of six programs to reestablish connections lost through the construction of US 41 through the heart of Palmetto. The PTNP will be a network of high-quality multimodal facilities in the City of Palmetto that will restore access to public schools, a youth center, over a dozen neighborhoods, seven parks, a conference center, local employment centers, and a public transit transfer station.
