MANATEE -- A pedestrian and bicycle trail linking the University of South Florida Sarasota-Manatee with Manatee County's Powel Crosley Estate is in the works.
A lease agreement was OK'd Tuesday by Manatee County commissioners to accommodate construction of the trail.
The first phase of the trail will connect USF-SM with New College of Florida, while other phases may eventually take hikers and bikers to other local institutions such as the nearby John & Mable Ringling Museum of Art.
