Heidi moved to Tampa in 2012 and was dismayed at the lack of safe biking and transit here. After hearing about the Green Artery at a neighborhood meeting, she wanted to see this great idea become a reality. This is the sort of development that will make Tampa a great place to live and work.
Myron Griffin, co-founder of the Green ARTery, has had a life-long interest in nature and preserving green spaces. More than four years ago he and Tampa Heights community activist Lena Young-Green organized a 20-member neighborhood coalition to promote trails, paths and green spaces connecting the city’s neighborhoods.
