Upcoming Public Hearings

  • November 13, 2019, 1 p.m., 315 Court St., Clearwater
    • Advantage Pinellas Long Range Transportation Plan
    • Land Use Amendments to the Countywide Plan:
      • CW19-21: This proposed amendment is submitted by the City of Largo and seeks to amend property totaling approximately 0.39 acres from Public/Semi-Public to Residential Low Medium. The subject property is currently being used as a church parsonage on a broader church property, however, the owner has indicated interest in selling the parsonage and developing a new one elsewhere on the broader church property. The subject property is considered conforming as a single ancillary dwelling unit and could be converted into a single-family residential property in the future.
      • CW19-22:  This proposed amendment is submitted by the City of Largo and seeks to amend property totaling approximately 3.3 acres from Office, Retail & Services, and Target Employment Center to Retail & Services and Target Employment Center. The subject properties fall within the Bay Vista employment hub and are currently bisected by differing land use classifications. The applicant’s intent is to establish a single land-use classification across the entire property in accordance with the locational criteria. The Target Employment Center Overlay will remain in place.
      • CW19-23: This proposed amendment is submitted by the City of Largo and seeks to amend property totaling approximately 2.16 acres from Residential Low Medium to Public/Semi-Public. The subject property is currently being used as a single-family home, however, the Lake House Assisted Living Facility located west of the property desires to expand their facility by incorporating the subject property. The intended use is consistent with the character and scale of institutional uses adjacent to the property.
    • Transportation Improvement Program:

      • TIP Amendment:  The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is proposing an amendment to the FY 2019/20 – 2023/24 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). The amendment advances construction funding for a bridge replacement project at 40th Avenue North east over Placido Bayou from year five to the current year. The projects total cost is $9,636,304. This funding is new and will not affect projects already included in the TIP.
      • TIP Modification: The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) provides funds for planning, defined as FTA 5305 funds, to Forward Pinellas through FDOT. These funds vary from year to year and are initially estimated in the development of the Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP). However, when these funds become available their actual value must be reflected in the UPWP. The TIP planning funds must reflect the UPWP planning funds, hence the proposed modification to the currently adopted TIP. The initial FTA section 5305 funds estimate of $508,150 is therefore being updated to the actual FTA section 5305 fund allocation of $544,779.
      • Fall Update of the TIP: Each year in the fall Forward Pinellas updates its Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) to include the recently adopted transportation work programs of the local governments.  Although metropolitan planning organizations are only required to provide information on federal- and state-funded transportation projects, Forward Pinellas has historically included the transportation projects in adopted local government capital improvement programs through its annual fall update. This provides citizens, businesses and other public agencies that reference the TIP with a more comprehensive report of scheduled transportation projects located throughout Pinellas County.
