TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - The Blueprint Intergovernmental Agency is meeting right now.
The board, looking at a project that could create a "gateway district" in Tallahassee.
The goal is to develop an urban entrance into the city from the airport, collaborating with FSU and FDOT. That would involve landscaping and expanding roadways in the southwest.
The project would connect FSU's southwest campus to the main one.
The idea of a district came up a few months ago and ties into the airport gateway that was already approved as a Blueprint project.
"How can we do road projects and stormwater projects with a greater good, with a high impact for the benefit -- and create that sense of place?" said Ben Pingree, the director of the Department of PLACE. "We think the Airport Gateway Project is there. We think the district will take it potentially even further."
The price tag is $58 million with an extra $21 million coming from the state and FSU. But this project isn't a done deal.
We'll bring you more on the project later tonight.
