Property and business owners, realtors and those that were simply curious had plenty of questions for Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) staff and the agency’s planning consultants during a public hearing Wednesday, April 12, in the Lake Panasoffkee Community Building. The hearing was held for FDOT to present its plan for expanding and changing County Road 470 from the Florida Turnpike intersection to County Road 527.
