Optimizing irrigation systems

Citrus County Utilities Florida-Friendly Landscaping™ Program is offering a free gardening workshop on September 10, 2019 from 2:00-3:30 pm.  Landscape irrigation is supplemental, but often uses 50-70 % of total residential water consumption. Irrigation practices such as seasonal scheduling, catch can calibration and selection of drought tolerant plants are essential to creating a sustainable and water conserving landscape.  Classes are held at the Citrus County Extension Service building located at 3650 W Sovereign Path in Lecanto.  Please contact Steven Davis at (352) 527-5708 to confirm your participation or register at https://ccufflprogram.eventbrite.com.

Managing pest wisely

Citrus County Utilities Florida-Friendly Landscaping™ Program is offering a free gardening workshop on September 24, 2019 from 2:00-3:30 pm.  Correctly identifying the cause of plant damage is always the first step to controlling an infestation.  Inspection, scouting, identification, selecting the least harmful control and accurate application are all important IPM practices. Classes are held at the Citrus County Extension Service building located at 3650 W Sovereign Path in Lecanto.  Please contact Steven Davis at (352) 527-5708 to confirm your participation or register at https://ccufflprogram.eventbrite.com.

The public is invited to join the Board of Citrus County Commissioners for the CR486/Pine Ridge/Meadowcrest Trailhead Ribbon Cutting Ceremony on Tuesday, October 8, 2019 at 9:00am at 6415 W. Norvell Bryant Hwy. No RSVP is needed to attend.

The nearly $450,000 construction contract with Daly & Zilch (Florida), Inc. for the CR 486/Pine Ridge/Meadowcrest Trailhead project was approved by the Board of County Commissioners on December 18, 2018.  The Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) Land and Recreation Grants paid $150,000 of the $450,000 through a State grant.  

The new trailhead is constructed on a remainder parcel of land originally acquired for the CR 486 road-widening project.  The trailhead is the western most of the three constructed along the 13 miles of CR486; and will be a connection hub for access to the SR 44 bike lanes, CR 491 Multi-Use Path, the Withlacoochee State Trail and once constructed, the path along Suncoast 2 extension to CR 486.  The trailhead will be a welcomed addition to the community providing a safe means of connecting area residences to the YMCA, places of employment, shopping, medical offices, and to various trail networks.   

For questions or more information on this event, please contact Public Information Officer, Cynthia Oswald at 352-527-5484.
