A public hearing will be held to solicit comments on the fiscal year (FY) 2021/22 – FY 2025/26 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). Forward Pinellas is required to adopt the TIP by July 1, 2021 for the county to receive state and federal funding for transportation projects. The projects include new construction, reconstruction, capital purchases, and maintenance work associated with roads, sidewalks, trails, transit services, airports, the Port of St. Petersburg, and the Transportation Disadvantaged Program. The annual TIP adoption process involves incorporating the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) FY 2021/22 – FY 2025/26 Final Tentative Work Program into the TIP.
A public hearing will be held to consider amendments to the Countywide Rules to create a Senior Housing Bonus; revise and clarify the process for Countywide Plan Map adjustments; clarify public hearing procedures for amendment of the Countywide Plan Map, Countywide Plan Strategies, and Countywide Rules; and update definitions. Forward Pinellas will make an advisory recommendation to the Pinellas County Board of County Commissioners, acting in its capacity as the Countywide Planning Authority (CPA), on the proposed amendment. The CPA will subsequently schedule two public hearings to consider approval, modification, or denial of the proposed amendment.
