    Affordable Housing?? The entire City Council unanimously approved a 20 story building with only 51 luxury dwelling units and 10,400 sq. ft. of commercial space. There’s another $30 Mil, 18 story building on the way with 95 dwelling units each with a private courtyard.
    They said the St. Petersburg Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) finding is consistent with the Intown Redevelopment Plan???

    Seriiously? St. Petersburg is in the process of building 25 high rise apartments/condos with over 45 more in the planning phase and the City is still spewing sewage in the streets every single month… I’d say we need a sewage plant more than another housing project.. so “How they are going to confront St. Pete’s wastewater crisis” instead?

The topic really should be “Mayoral candidates confront St. Pete’s wastewater crisis” instead of begging them to add housing to an already inadequate sewage system!

    Dorine, you’re right about the need for a sewage solution BUT St Pete is desperate NOW for genuinely affordable housing, not the high-end stuff that’s being approved by our current city council & mayor.
    These luxurious abodes will drive up already unaffordable housing costs throughout the city & county while exasperating an already dire affordability crisis.

    John, We have over 75 high rise building projects in the works and NOT ONE PLAN to replace or refubish the Albert Whitted sewage plant — the one that shoots hospital waste to another sewage plant that also cannot handle capacity! Seriously we need to talk about increasing sewage infrastructure instead of housing until the current sewage plants can cope with the load they have… Planning for one without the other is short sighted and will only pollute the whole of Tampa Bay. OH — Wait! We already are! Upgrading our sewage infrastructure should be priority ONE! Unless you like dead fish, seabirds and Manatees washing up on the beaches and literally toilet to tap for your water supply!
