St Pete plans for Pier


Opinion: Let’s support commercial development in
the s1existings0 area lying west of Beach Blvd. instead
of planning commercial development at the Pier.

For example: develop the pier for low rise recreational pursuits and for attractions such as walking, boating, dog park, etc. Perhaps a permanent display showing St. Petersburg heritage, relocate the existing museum.

Provide transportation from the Pier to areas such as the BayWalk and other commercial lying west of Beach Blvd. The Pier should enhance existing commercial and not compete with it.

Utilize funds available for improving street lighting for the downtown area to encourage night time activity. For example the existing lighting along Central Avenue, downtown, is not adequate.
