Historic surveys and Florida Master Site File forms (FMSF) have facilitated the listing of several neighborhoods in the National Register of Historic Places. Since 1998, the City has utilized matching grants to fund the preparation of five district nominations for the National Register of Historic Places. These districts include: Downtown St. Petersburg Historic District, Kenwood Historic District, North Shore Historic District, Roser Park Historic District, and Round Lake Historic District. Including the aforementioned historic districts, 28 properties within the city are listed in the National Register of Historic Places, with ten of these since 1998.
Staff members are also responsible for administering the Local Landmark program Designation reports for review by the Historic Preservation Commission for nominations to the St. Petersburg Register of Local Landmarks. An inventory of these buildings and districts is on file in the Urban Design, Planning, and Historic Preservation division and are available to the public. There are currently more than 80 individual landmarks and 2 historic districts listed as local historic landmarks.
