Planning at the local government level can require large investments of staff time and financial resources, and smaller communities with limited resources often require assistance from Forward Pinellas.
Our staff provides several different types of local assistance. We are always available to provide routine technical help to local government staff members who have questions about, or need help navigating their way through, the countywide land use and transportation planning process.
We track state and federal legislation that affects local comprehensive planning and land development regulation. We host educational workshops and planning discussion forums, and our staff is available to make presentations at local government meetings and workshops upon request.
