MYAKKA CITY, Fla. — A local resident is coordinating a meeting to discuss transportation in Myakka City.

Alyssa Gay tells ABC Action News that development in the area has been a big problem for people in the area.

"Due to ongoing development, there has been an influx of traffic and subsequent accidents throughout east county and Myakka City," says Alyssa Gay, owner of Alyssa Gay Consulting. “Residents, including myself, are concerned about these issues. I wanted to provide a platform for residents and these organizations to discuss their concerns in an informative, constructive, and proactive approach.”

Gay tells us that FHP, Manatee County Sheriff's Office, Myakka Fire Dept., FDOT and many other agencies will be in attendance to speak with.

The meeting is Tuesday, January 29 at 7 p.m. It will be held at Bethany Baptist Church, 26604 State Road 64 East in Myakka City. You can find out more about the event by clicking here.
