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.  The 3.6 miles of multimodal improvements proposed in the grant application connect these existing destinations and preserve the longevity of existing infrastructure.

On July 17, 2018, Manatee County Board of Commissioners, on behalf of its Palmetto Trails Network Plan partners, submitted the attached grant application to the U.S. Department of Transportation.   The Better Utilizing Investments to Leverage Development, or “BUILD” Transportation Discretionary Grant, funds National Infrastructure Investments appropriated pursuant to the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.
