The City of St. Petersburg Seeks Engaged Individuals for Citizen Advisory Committee Vacancies
What is the CAC?
The CAC, created by an interlocal agreement between St. Petersburg City Council and the Pinellas County Board of County Commissioners, is the City’s first redevelopment advisory committee and is comprised of nine members of whom six are appointed by the Mayor and three appointed by the County Commission.
What does the CAC do?
The CAC advises the St. Petersburg Community Redevelopment Agency on the South St. Petersburg Community Redevelopment Plan and any amendments thereto as well as other issues and policies pertaining to the CRA.
What are the responsibilities of a CAC member?
The CAC typically meets the first Tuesday of each month, unless the meeting is rescheduled or canceled due to holidays. Due to City Hall renovations, meetings will take place in the Auditorium of the Sunshine Center (330 5th St. N.) throughout the remainder of 2019.
CAC members are also expected to attend special meetings when called. According to City policy, CAC members must have an attendance record of 75 percent or better within any consecutive twelve-month period or be at risk of potential removal from the CAC. Absences can be excused for “good cause” meaning illness, illness or death of an immediate family member, or due to business or vacation that requires the member to be out of the City on the day of the meeting.
How do I apply?
Applications will only be accepted online at stpete.org/boards_and_committees/citizen_advisory_committee. You can also upload a cover letter and resume.
City will begin reviewing applications/resumes for the current positions on July 22, 2019. The terms of service for the appointees will end on January 31, 2022, with the new members potentially eligible to serve one additional three-year term.
The City will accept applications and resumes on an ongoing basis beyond the July 22 deadline to maintain a pool of eligible candidates for future vacancies. Applications for this position will be valid for one year after receipt to allow the City to respond quickly to openings on the CAC that may occur during the year.
