TIGER Grant - Immokalee Complete Streets


Both the CRA and the MSTU offered letters of support for the TIGER IX application submitted to U.S. Department of Transportation by the Collier County Board of County Commissioners. The Growing Connections to Create Mobility Opportunities in Immokalee will further implement the vision to redevelop Immokalee into a safe pedestrian/multi-modal community. This project will target specific high-traffic pedestrian areas identified in the Immokalee Walkability Community Study adopted in 2011.
