(2) Temple Terrace bat tower workshop meeting
The City of Temple Terrace will hold a workshop meeting to discuss where a planned bat tower should be constructed.
The original tower was constructed in the city in the 1920s to help control the mosquito population. It burned down in 1979.
In July, the City Council decided to narrow site for the proposed bat tower to Rotary Park, Riverhills Park and Scout Park.
Bat experts and city staff will attend tonight's workshop to answer any questions people living near the proposed sites may have. There will also be displays to show each of the three finalist sites.
The new tower would be 40 feet tall and would likely contain a colony of between 200,000 and 600,000 bats.
Tonight's meeting begins at 6:00 p.m. at the Temple Terrace City Hall at 11250 North 56th Street.
