    What is the issue with the 2016 Coastal High Hazard Area (CHHA) revision? The debate is over revising City land use restrictions to compensate for the doubling in the size of the CHHA since 2010. With the 2016 re-evaluation and declaration of flood zones in Pinellas County, Saint Petersburg's CHHA now encompasses some 41% of the entire city.

    This means areas that were not previously limited to developer requests to increase density (residency/businesses) are now at risk of being denied which has far-reaching implications for homeowners and businesses which impact the economic future of the city. 

    This like is a PDF summary of theCHHA:

    This link is a Saint Pete Catalyst article where proponents and opponents discuss the implications of the CHHA:

    Pardon our dust! Blue Sky Communities has begun demolition of the Bay Breeze Motel at 3900 34th St S in the The Skyway Marina District. Blue Sky, a prolific developer of quality affordable housing units in several Florida cities, plans Avery Commons, 65 one and two bedroom units that will incorporate the Bay Breeze site and another across-the-street site off 39th Ave S (behind Dunkin Donuts). 

    ‘Affordable’ pricing for the units will be based on the tenant’s earnings as a percentage of the area median income. 

    Meanwhile, also in the booming Skyway Marina District, three luxury apartments of varied styles and sizes are well underway, lending to a promising transformation of the landscape along the southern stretch of US19. Check it out here from our friends at St. Pete Rising!

    From the Florida Department of Health (DOH), August 5, 2020

    Beware of contact tracing or testing scams. Our colleagues at the health department in Jefferson County shared that some of their residents are getting fraud calls from someone claiming to work with them. The person is asking for personal information such as a Social Security number. Never provide personal information when someone calls regarding COVID-19 tests or contact tracing! Public health will only ask for your date of birth for confirmation if you have been tested. If a call or text seem suspicious, ask for the caller's name and the name of the supervisor. Hang up and give us a call at (727) 824-6932. Our staff can confirm if the caller is a state employee.
