Forward Pinellas Creates Virtual “Comment Board”
~~ Share your ideas to help create a vision for the future of Downtown St. Petersburg ~~
This summer, more than 500 St. Petersburg residents and visitors took the Downtown St. Petersburg Mobility Survey telling us how we can make transportation in Downtown St. Petersburg safe, efficient and accessible to walkers, bikers, drivers and everyone in between.
Now, we need you to share your voice and ideas to help us define a vision for transportation in Downtown St. Petersburg with a new, interactive “Comment Board” where you can tell us where you’re seeing problems, upload pictures, and even comment and like other posts. The online “Comment Board” will be open to share your ideas now until January 10, 2020.
“In St. Petersburg, we strive to create transportation that benefits everyone, connects downtown neighborhoods, enhances quality of life, encourages our economy and promotes safety,” says St. Petersburg Mayor, Rick Kriseman. “We know that there are ways we can improve our roadways and by sharing your ideas, we can create a vision for our community together.”
Here’s how you can get involved:
- Share your ideas on the “Comment Board”: ly/DTSPcommentboard
- Check out the website: http://ForwardPinellas.org/DTSP/
- Sign Up for the Email List: ly/DTSPSignUp
Through the website and “Comment Board” you can also ask questions and stay updated with more ways you can help us improve mobility, livability and economic vitality, and identify and prioritize transportation projects – large and small – throughout the study. Whether you live and work in downtown, or just love to visit and enjoy the incredible atmosphere, your voice will directly help us in our next steps to develop and prioritize projects and programs that will improve the community. Then we will create an action plan to make these ideas into a reality in Downtown St. Petersburg.
The Downtown St. Petersburg Mobility Study is a partnership between Forward Pinellas, the City of St. Petersburg and the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT). We recognize that people are traveling differently right now. We welcome your thoughts on your interactions with Downtown both before COVID-19 and what you are seeing today.
