Our guests were the Study Team Leader, Brent Lacy, and Director of Planning, Curt Ostrodka, with VHB, a local engineering, planning and design firm; Melissa Zornitta, the Executive Director of the Hillsborough County City-County Planning Commission, Plan Hillsborough; and Whit Blanton, the Executive Director of Forward Pinellas, the central planning agency for Pinellas County.

Brent and Curt talked about Parramore Comprehensive Neighborhood Plan that VHB prepared for the City of Orlando and some of their other projects. Melissa and Whit talked about their regional efforts to create better car transportation and alternative transportation (i.e., bicycle and walkable friendly roads) issues.
