The Forward Pinellas Board will conduct the metropolitan planning organization public hearings first, followed by the Pinellas Planning Council public hearings.
Pinellas County Metropolitan Planning Organization
Role call votes are required for Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) items and the annual adoption of priorities. Items will be presented to the board and opportunity will be given for public comment. The board will then close the public hearing, ask any questions, deliberate and take action.
Pinellas Planning Council
Forward Pinellas staff will present the items, then any of the Applicant Local Government(s) desiring to do so may address their item(s). Once these reports are given, proponents of any of the proposals will be permitted to speak, then opponents, and finally any other citizens who wish to comment or ask questions on any of the proposals. The board will then hear rebuttal by the applicant as necessary, and a staff response or summary. The board members will ask any questions and then will close the public hearing. The board will then deliberate and take action.
