Did you see our booth at Pinellas Park's Holiday in the Park event on Friday, November 30th?
S&ME hosted a “Public Input and Information Booth” at the Holiday in the Park. We received input from event participants on their “Preferred Development Types” and “Desired Park and Recreation Amenities”. We also had a “Children's Corner” where kids could write down their ideas for park features on Christmas ornaments that were hung in the booth. We had over 75 people stop by the booth and offer their ideas and thoughts. Lots of good information was gathered that addressed the preferred development types, potential park user groups, design themes and desired uses within the CRA.
S&ME wants to give Detective Tippet and the Police Explorers a big shout-out for putting on a very well-organized event that was great fun!
On Tuesday, September 18th, 2018, S&ME presented an update to the CRA Board on the status of the Community Redevelopment Agency Plan Update, and proposed an area for the expansion of the CRA. The CRA Board discussed the boundary proposed by S&ME and revised the area to be included in the Findings of Necessity Study necessary to expand the Redevelopment Area.
The presentation is available for download here.
