|SUBJECT / RECOMMENDATIONS|
Approve Conveyances of Right-of-Way to Hillsborough County for the School Safety Circulation and Access Program at Carrollwood, Crestwood, Dickenson, Mango, Symmes and Twin Lakes Elementary Schools, Burns Middle School and Brandon and Durant High Schools, Including Partial Releases from Certificates of Participation at Carrollwood, Crestwood, Mango and Twin Lakes Elementary Schools and Durant High School
On September 18, 2007, the School Board of Hillsborough County was informed of a joint project between the School District and Hillsborough County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) related to the School Safety Circulation and Access Program (SSCAP). SSCAP was initiated to identify and construct access improvements adjacent to or at designated school sites.
Improvements have been made to 22 school campuses, some of which required right-of-way from the School Board to complete the projects; Carrollwood, Crestwood, Dickenson, Mango, Symmes and Twin Lakes Elementary Schools, Burns Middle School, and Brandon and Durant High Schools. Five of the sites require partial releases from the Certificates of Participation funding (COPs) in order to convey clear title to the County of these small areas of right-of-way. These sites are Carrollwood, Crestwood, Mango and Twin Lakes Elementary Schools and Durant High School.
SSCAP is an ongoing County and District project and additional school sites are being evaluated for future circulation improvement projects.

|FINANCIAL IMPACT (Budgeted: No)|
The School Safety Circulation and Access Program (SSCAP) is funded by Hillsborough County with approximately Seven Million Dollars ($7,000,000) from the Community Investment Tax. There are no costs to Hillsborough County Public Schools related to these improvements.
