The Citrus County Port Authority Board met on Tuesday, June 25 to review Phase I of the feasibility study. A presentation was made by Rick Ferrin of TranSystems regarding Task Area 1: Probability Determination, which focused on three main areas:
1. Preliminary site location, infrastructure needs and environmental impact identification
2. Market and opportunity analysis
3. Funding sources, eligibility and application procedures
After discussion and hearing public comments, the Port Authority voted four to one to move forward with Phase 2 in the feasibility study. The next phase will identify funding sources, both state and federal, and initial application preparations.
