Wednesday, January 16, 1985 1 7-Northside Traffic signal installation is scheduled Temple Park residents had been requesting the traffic light for more than a year. By TOM WUCKOVICH Tribune Staff Writer A traffic light that frustrated motorists have coveted for the intersection of Temple Terrace Highway and Temple Park Drive will be installed in no less than four weeks, Hillsborough County Public Works Director Ed Copeland has said. But It took some arm-twisting and cajoling on Copeland's part to get the timetable moved up from July 1985 to satisfy promises made to nearby residents who have lobbied and petitioned for the traffic signal for more than a year. County Commissioner E.L Bing and Copeland had been telling residents of Temple Park and Rolling Hills that the light had been moved up on the priority list and would be installed this month. A check with the traffic maintenance department last week revealed a July installation date. , "When I heard that, I said, 'What?'," Copeland said, and he proceeded to make the necessary telephone calls. "From the design to construction, the timing got messed up, but we will do all we can to get it done this month. If not, it will be only about (four) weeks before it is operational." That was good news to people such as Gerald Watts and Jim Hamilton, Temple Park residents who had led the fight to get a light Installed at the intersection. Watts said "I was told it would be this month but It's better than July. Though if it was July, I don't think we would have had much recourse." Hamilton said he was assured the light would be in this month and was happy to learn that it wouldn't , be delayed until July. "They have been telling us January and we counted on that. We need It-out here." . Studies done at the intersection through 3983 showed that eight accidents occurred at the intersection and three of those accidents resulted in six people being injured. The acci dents and the concerns expressed by residents prompted the traffic engineers to move the intersection from 63 to 21 on the1 priority list. Watts also presented the County Commission with 600 signatures on a petition and promised 300 more in an effort to dramatize support for getting the light. Watts said he felt the need is even greater now "because the developments along Bui-lard Parkway are Increasing every day. There are apartments springing up all over the place." Copeland agreed and said traffic installation "was not giving It the priorities we gave it months ago." Installation of the light will cost around $55,000 and Copeland said the only delay now would be getting some parts that have not been ordered. "If we get those right away, we could make it by this month," he said. The light will be on a temporary pole, said Bob Lindberg of the traffic installation department. "We know that road will be widened In the near future and when that is done, we will put up the permanent poles." Corporate rezoning plan criticized By TOM WUCKOVICH Tribune Staff Writer TEMPLE TERRACE A spokeswoman for a coalition of civic and environmental groups last week attacked a proposal to rezone 326 acres of land along the Hillsborough River for construction of a $500 million high-technology corporate park, Maxlne Hatcher pleaded with the City Council at a public hearing on the issue to deny the rezoning for the park "and any other area until this council approves a strong biologically defensible and legally enforceable, wetlands ordinance . . . along the entire river within its (the city's) jurisdiction." GTE Realty Corp. and Collier Enterprises of Naples are partners in the project that will eventually contain 300,000 square feet of office, research and development, hotel and retail space and be built during the next 10 years in an area recently annexed by Temple Terrace. It is bounded by Fletcher Avenue on the north, the Hillsborough River on the west and south and the Interstate 75 bypass on the east. It is one of six projects that will fall under the direct influence of the council, Hatcher said. She urged the council to consider the magnitude of the projects during its, deliberations and "the cumulative effects of what you are doing." She complained bitterly of a proposed six-story hotel "within 50 feet of the river," and called it a form of "visual pollution." Her statements were echoed by Wilson Ayers who made an eloquent plea to council members to "protect the river. I can't make an appeal to the developers . . . they are out there to maximize their profits. My appeal is to you, the permitting authority." City Manager Picot Floyd tried, to reassure the audience of about 20 people that "Department of Environmental Regulation guidelines on wetlands will be followed," and that Temple Terrace has Its own strict rules on protection of wetlands. He said the conservation easement sought by the city is usually the Department of Environmental Regulation's wetlands ordinance "plus 50 feet." John Lawson, attorney for GTE Realty and Collier, said he would be prepared to make a "full-blown presentation" on the proposed development at the next meeting of the City Council on Jan. 22. Hatcher and Ayers promised a large turnout for the presentation. In other action, the council: Authorized the purchase of a 1985 Dodge Diplomat police pursuit car for $10,758.20. Passed a resolution authorizing the execution of the labor contract with the International Brotherhood of Firemen & Oilers Union, which represents the city's maintenance and utility workers. m m 151 m m m m m m m m Girone & Sons Tile and Carpet Marble Window Sills cut to sizer Real Italian Marble Slabs for Table Tops and Fireplace hearths Italian Marble Polish Available for beautifying your table tops.
