City Improves Ranking as Bicycle Friendly City

St. Petersburg has been recognized by the League of American Bicyclists as a Silver-level Bicycle Friendly City for its attention to promoting, educating, and investing in bicycle friendliness. The ranking elevates St. Pete from the Bronze level, which it's held since 2006.

The Coast Bike Share program, bike-friendly events such as Open Streets St. Pete, increased miles of bike lanes and trails, and the Complete Streets Implementation Plan are all examples of the city's commitment to increased sustainability and a healthy lifestyle. Read more

Curbside Storm Debris Pick-Up Winding Down

As of Nov. 27, 164,000 cubic yards of storm debris has been delivered to the storm reduction site.

City crews will make a final pass through the city in the next week or two to collect storm debris left behind after Irma. Crews will not pick up debris that is fresh and non-storm related, as it will not be eligible for FEMA reimbursement. A contractual monitor will assist city crews in evaluating debris in question.
