The meeting will be held on Feb. 21

Hillsborough County will hold a public meeting to discuss proposed improvements to the road medians on Northdale Boulevard from Dale Mabry Highway to Premiere Drive in northern Hillsborough County. The proposed improvements would provide safe access to the Whole Foods Market that is currently being constructed at the former call center site along the road, as well as improve safe turning along Northdale Boulevard. The median at Altimira Drive is proposed to be modified to eliminate northbound left turns from Altimira Drive onto Northdale Boulevard. A westbound left turn into the Whole Foods Store also is proposed to be added through the median modifications. Construction of these improvements is planned to begin during the summer of 2012 …

The owner of the independent health food store says a Whole Foods nearby won't change how she does business.
When Whole Foods Market announced in July the opening of a new store in Northdale, Abby Sayler, the owner of independent health food store Abby’s Health and Nutrition, was unfazed.

Whole Foods is a natural and organic grocery store with more than 300 stores. Sayler says she’s accustomed to competition from Carrollwood stores like nearby Nutrition S’Mart, an organic food and vitamin store with six locations, and Vitamin Discount Center, another vitamin store on …
