Economic development and re-development doesn’t happen in a vacuum. Location and development decisions are influenced by the availability of transportation and these development decisions can also influence the need for additional transportation infrastructure. The Daytona Regional Chamber of Commerce and the River To Sea Transportation Planning Organization join forces to present this Tallahassee Speakers Series on Monday, February 25, 3:30 – 5:30 p.m. at Embry-Riddle’s Henderson Welcome Center. Our panel of speakers will discuss their experiences in aligning economic development and transportation projects including the successes and challenges they’ve encountered.
