A resident recently complained to the Community Development District 13 Board of Supervisors about golf carts accessing the path which is intended for walkers and cyclists.

As a result of residents’ concerns, District Property Management also recently took a look at the walking path in the Village of Bradford. The walking path is “showing normal wear for an asphalt walking path; however, golf carts driving on the path will likely result in premature wear overtime,” according to an update offered at Thursday’s meeting of the CDD 13 Board of Supervisors.
