  • Maybe now we can put up more Light Poles on Hwy 50 & U.S. 19 to encourage Urban Sprawl and further continue to throw away tax money and insult the residents. From living the experience of the County & State not planning a damn thing along Cortez Blvd. (Hwy 50) except putting businesses out of business and allowing new businesses to be built without regard to quality of life or whether that had adequate access or not why should any resident have faith in their Hernando County Government? How about another Strip Mall in front of Sears in the parking lot to further clog the entire area and make it more unlivable than it already is.
