$20,000,000 is going into pathways for the Speedway project. Is any one paying attention to where all the taxes are going to? Why are the tax payers paying for the Speedway's pork barrel pet project? Are we going to be able to build a homeless shelter when all the tax dollars are going to waste? We can't even get a bike path along Tomoka Farms Road, but we can pay for the Speedway's project. This never is going to end.

The only real determination is that it's being laundered thru ideas of development. The CiCi Hyatt Brown foundation wants to start another project and there have been reports of nothing but delay's on the art museum. Which looks like a big concrete barn in the middle of nowhere. The shopping center across from the speedway $2 million into a hotel- next to the speedway You can determine what isn't being completed a bit better even from 83 miles away it doesn't sound like much is getting done to benefit anybody- Except the France family.

There needs to be "low income" housing built into the Speedway's project for condos and apartments for all the low paid workers that will have to work there. Maybe they can live under the stands.

Consolidated Tomoka bought land on Tomoka Farms Road with plans to build a CarMax.
