TAVARES — A public meeting is scheduled for Thursday, Dec. 15, at 5 p.m. to inform residents along Hartle Road, located southeast of the City of Clermont, about plans to widen and realign the road.

The purpose of this study is to identify and evaluate alternative alignments and typical sections for widening the road. Additionally, the evaluation will include realigning Hartle Road with County Road 455 at State Road 50 and extending the corridor to the south from Magnolia Island Boulevard to connect to Hartwood Marsh Road.
