Florida Black Bear Scenic Byway Master Plan Study
The FBBSB Master Plan Study was developed from May 2011 – June 2012. The document includes recommendations and plans that will be the foundation for developing the byway over the next 10 years all designed to make the byway more accessible and interesting to travelers.

- Current Projects around and on the byway
- Designs of eight initial interpretive panels for the byway
- Conceptual Engineering designs for future site enhancements
- Landscape plans for nine retention ponds

Two volunteer built kiosks. We will build and install two outdoor Interpretive kiosks with
