Hillsborough gets no funding from Pasco for widening of BBD
Yesterday, the state gave its approval for the 5,000 acre Wiregrass development in Wesley Chapel. Pasco County will be receiving $579 million from the Wiregrass development for road improvements. Hillsborough County was hoping to get intervention at the state level for $28 million from Pasco to widen Bruce B. Downs, just south of the Hillsborough/Pasco border. The state essentially ignored the issue and Hillsborough was left holding an empty tin cup.
