StPete2050 close to completion
September 9, 2020 - St. Petersburg city officials expect to release a final report on StPete2050, a citywide visioning process, next month. The report will be presented to the City Council when it is meeting as a Committee of the Whole on Oct. 22, Derek Kilborn, manager of urban planning and historic preservation, told the Community Planning and Preservation Commission on Tuesday. It will first be made public around the beginning of October. The community was very engaged in the visioning process and the city received a lot of feedback about successes from an earlier Vision 2020 plan, as well as opportunities for improvement, Kilborn said. The final report will include a summary and recommendations, as well as three appendices: a progress and opportunities report, a market assessment and a public engagement report. After the City Council's Committee of the Whole presentation, the next phase of StPete2050 is to incorporate the feedback into the city's comprehensive plan and long-range planning efforts, including land development regulations, Kilborn said.
