Current Planning Projects
Coastal High Hazard Area (CHHA)
The CHHA map was updated by the State in 2016, resulting in a major expansion of the overall boundary. In response to this update, the City is discussing potential impacts the expansion has on development and possible methods for allowing safe and reasonable increases in residential density within the CHHA, while also leading to a higher standard of construction that is more resilient to storm surge, mitigates for service and infrastructure needs during and immediately following a major storm event, and enable safe re-occupation as quickly as possible following and evacuation.

Housing Development and Affordability Initiatives
In response to growing concerns about housing affordability, the City has initiated a housing development and affordability initiative that will eventually include new and improved housing programs, text amendments to the City’s Land Development Regulations, and map amendments to the City’s Zoning and Future Land Use maps.
Noise Ordinance Update
In order to address concerns raised by the public and law enforcement, St. Petersburg is evaluating its noise ordinance. City staff has analyzed the city’s noise levels, conducted stakeholder meetings with the public, including affected businesses, researched model noise ordinances, presented to the Public Services and Infrastructure Committee, and worked with acoustic consultants. This process will conclude with a review of potential changes to our existing noise ordinance that will be proposed for adoption by City Council.
