Weekend Plans!

The TECO Line Streetcar System takes you to the
entrance of the Ybor City Saturday Market.
Gettin' Fresh at the Ybor Market
So, it's Saturday, and if your family is anything like mine, you're probably asking yourselves "what are we going to do today?"

Here's something new - how about hopping over to the Ybor City Saturday Market!

Now that fall has officially...well, fallen (not quite the same as "spring has sprung," is it?), the fresh market is back to its regular hours of 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. That means two extra hours of shopping for the choicest produce, tastiest breads, coolest jewelry, and funkiest funky fun novelties around.

The Ybor City Fresh Market is located in Centennial Park, just east of Centro Ybor, at the corner of 8th Avenue and 19th Street.

Plus, it's conveniently served by the TECO Line Streetcar System. You can park at one of four public garages along the line and ride the rails right to the park entrance. Make a day of it and take the streetcar to Channelside or the Florida Aquarium, too!

AA Hearing Today; Budget Hearing and Board Meeting Monday
The HART Board of Directors will meet Monday, Sept. 27, at 5:30 p.m. in the 18th floor Planning Commission boardroom of the County Center.

Please note, this venue is a change from the previously announced location.

A regular Board of Directors meeting will immediately follow the HART Budget Public Hearing on Monday, with information regarding the HART Alternatives Analysis study, the HART Transition Plan to implement the Rapid Transit Investment Program (RTIP) and the Capital Improvement Program (CIP). In addition, an agenda item will be presented regarding expanding the HART Business Diversity Program to include a Small Business Enterprise Program in Fiscal Year 2011 and potentially a Woman/Minority Business Enterprise Program in Fiscal Year 2012.

For more information and agendas regarding any upcoming Board meeting, visit and click on "Public Meetings."

In addition, you can still lend your comments at one of two public meetings on the Alternatives Analysis. One takes place today between 9 a.m. and noon, and the other is scheduled for Thursday. For details, download the flyer here.

Service During Bucs/Steelers Game Sept. 26
Remember, your (2-0!) Tampa Bay Buccaneers are back in town tomorrow, so bus travel around Raymond James Stadium will be affected by traffic management measures. Click here for detour information from HART's website, and call (813) 254-HART for details on stops that may not be accessible during the game.

Have a great weekend, and Go Bucs!!!
