Trop Site Development Showrooms

As of April 21, there are eight immersive showrooms located throughout the city to encourage residents to review proposals and give feedback regarding the Tropicana Field redevelopment project.

The showrooms are equipped with executive summaries of the proposals, videos, renderings, and the ability to leave input regarding the four shortlisted proposals.

The showroom locations are:

- North Library: 861 70th Ave. N.
- Mirror Lake Library: 280 5th St. N.
- JW Cate Rec Center: 5801 22nd Ave. N.
- Enoch Davis Rec Center: 1111 18th Ave. S.
- Thomas Jet Jackson Rec Center: 1000 28th St. S.
- South Community Library: 2300 Roy Hanna Dr. S.
- Gladden Park Rec Center: 3901 30th Ave. N.
- Campbell Park Rec Center: 601 14th St S

Each showroom location is subject to the established operating hours of the respective library or recreation center.

The showrooms launch after a week of extensive engagement with the potential development partners, where more than 500 residents joined three community input meetings. Community feedback will be collected until the final ribbon is cut on the Tropicana Field redevelopment. Input collected during this shortlist period will be provided to Mayor Rick Kriseman to inform a final development partner selection later this year.

Temporary Reclaimed Water Low Pressure

The City of St. Petersburg has enacted dry weather protocols to conserve the city’s supply of reclaimed water. Effective immediately, the City will temporarily lower the pressure to decrease the flow of reclaimed water coming from the City’s water reclamation facilities during the hottest times of the day so that the quantity of reclaimed water will be sufficient for irrigating overnight and in the early morning.

Reclaimed water customers may notice decreased pressure coming from their sprinklers from 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. and are encouraged to adjust their irrigation timers and only water according to the City’s year-round reclaimed water irrigation schedule:

  • Water your lawn no more than three days per week.
    • Even addresses should irrigate on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday
    • Odd addresses should irrigate on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday
    • Water from 5-9 a.m. or 7-11 p.m. Watering during the heat of the day is inefficient as much of the water used is lost to evaporation and wind drift.

Reclaimed water pressure will return to normal once the supply of reclaimed water is stabilized. If conditions worsen, the Mayor has the ability to enact mandatory restrictions on reclaimed water.
