The city of St. Petersburg is committed to emerging market segments that provoke entrepreneurial risk, diversify the city’s economic base, increase employment opportunities and generally enrich the overall quality of life for St. Petersburg’s many residents and visitors. Toward this end, the Land Development Regulations (LDRs) are monitored to ensure that new business trends and endeavors, not previously known or anticipated, are appropriately regulated such that any negative impacts are identified and properly addressed. Starting on November 3, 2011, the Public Service and Infrastructure Committee (PS&I) considered a request to evaluate the existing regulations for mobile food trucks.
The LDRs currently allow mobile food trucks city-wide, subject to certain conditions which are regulated under one (1) or more of the following:
- Section 16.50.440 titled “Vending of Products from Motor Vehicles”
- Section 16.50.410 titled “Temporary Uses”
- City Co-Sponsored Special Events

In January 2010, the City Council’s Public Service and Infrastructure Committee (PS&I) received a presentation from staff concerning the issue of local landmark designation without owner consent. The PS&I members decided that a comprehensive review of the Historic and Archaeological Preservation Overlay section of the Land Development Regulations (LDRs) would be appropriate as well as potential changes to the Transfer of Development Rights, Historic (TDR,H) program. To accomplish this task, the Community Preservation Commission (CPC) formed a Committee on Historic Preservation to solicit input from stakeholders and interested parties. The stated objective was to enhance activities of the CPC and clarify the processes and procedures related to historic preservation, including but not limited to, local landmark designation, the Certificate of Appropriateness (COA) process and the TDR,H program.
At the CPC workshop on April 14, 2010, the CPC voted to establish the Historic Preservation Committee. At the first meeting of the Committee on May 18, 2010, the Committee decided to form five (5) subcommittees that subsequently met individually to focus on the various issues. The subcommittees’ recommendations make up the final recommendation of the Historic Preservation Committee.
- Section 16.20.120 – Downtown Center Districts (DC)
- Section 16.30.070 – Historic and Archaeological Preservation Ordinance
- Section 16.70.040.1.17 – Transfer of Development Rights, Historic (Page 68 of 86)

Chapter 16 of the City Code is formally known as the Land Development Regulations (LDRs), which include zoning regulations and site planning and design standards. The LDRs in their current form became effective on September 10, 2007 and have since been modified periodically to stay current with evolving community preferences and to resolve minor inconsistencies, improve clarity of understanding and respond to changes in local, state and federal law.
Ideas and requests for improvements to the LDRs are submitted from a variety of sources, including the general public, city council, administration and staff. Improvements are generally processed bi-annually, twice per year.
