HARD ROAD TO LAKE WEIR
Two Pertinent Petitions to the Board
of County Commissioners
The following petitions speak for
themselves We print them that those
who have an Interest in them can
work the problem out for themselves
We appreciate the desirability of this
and other roads to have them harden
ed but It can only be done with mon
ey and In this as every other instance
it means money Its for the taxpayer I
to say how much he is willing to en
dure for said benefits
From the Citizens of Ocala
I To the Commissioners of Marion
County Gentlemen We citizens of
Ocala come before your honorable
body asking that as soon as prac
ticable you construct a hard road to
Lake Weir and respectfully submit
the following as our reasons for mak
ing what we think is a reasonable
request
1 The town of Ocala pays a large
portion of the expenses of this county
2 The business demands of Its cit
Izens require almost their constant
attention
3 After the wear and tear of a
working year a change of climate and
scene Is almost a necessity Shall we
be forced to go away from this county
to get It when but a short distance
from this their town home made
short by a hard road there Is one of
the most beautiful lakes In Florida
environed by a picturesque shore and
land contiguous to It with a climate
as salubrious as can be found in the
world
The undersigned would respectfully
ask in addition to the above your
careful consideration of the location
of the proposed connection with Lake
Weir
The first factor should be the ca
pacity Jar development and future
taxpaying of the section of country
through which the road may be pro
jected
The second and very important is
the capacity of the country through
which the road runs to furnish the
material for construction
Third the route other things con
sidered should be the most attractive
for our citizens and also for visiting
strangers
Fourth where the road we would
suggest approaches north Lake Weir
if you should select what is known as
the Carney road and which was laid
out and stumped some years ago as
the most advantageous as to economy
of construction to give Ocala connec
tion with the ake turn to the east
and parallel the lake to Eastlake and
go south
This project if carried out will give
the citizens of Ocala a delightful sum
mer resort build up the country thru
which the road goes and will form an
important link in the good roads
movement through the center of the
state as a set off against the hard
road enterprises of the east and west
coast people Respectfully

County Gentlemen We the under
