St. Pete Launches Penny for Pinellas GIS Map, Educational Material

St. Petersburg has launched an interactive GIS Penny for Pinellas map tool to educate citizens prior to the November 7 Penny for Pinellas reauthorization. The one percent tax, which was first approved by voters in 1989, occurs on the first $5,000 of non-tax-exempt items sold in Pinellas County during specified periods and funds long-term infrastructure improvements. The GIS map features more than 100 examples of city Penny projects completed or underway from 2010 to the present, showing improvements to city facilities, public safety, recreation and culture, and general infrastructure projects. The interactive map will allow citizens to view projects citywide and by council district. The current Penny will expire in 2020 unless it passes November 7.
