A discussion with Central Florida and Tampa Bay mayors about managing growth while maintaining the quality of life in their cities and throughout Florida. The Tampa Bay area has grown by 290 percent and is expected to have grown by 391 percent by 2045... and Central Florida? 407 percent growth for the last 47 years, and then experts expect the population to have grown by 590 percent by 2045. That's basically SIX TIMES the number of people from 1970 to 2045. Statewide growth, by the way, 301 percent through last year, and expected to be closer to 404 percent in 2045. Guests: Windermere Mayor Gary Bruhn, Oviedo Mayor Dominic Persampiere, West Melbourne Mayor Hal Rose, Lakeland Mayor Pro-Tem Phillip Walker.
