Current Planning Projects

StPete2050 Plan

In 2002, our community completed the Vision 2020 process, culminating in City Council’s adoption of the Vision 2020 formal plan. As 2020 approaches, the time has come to begin a new conversation and develop StPete2050. StPete2050 is a city-wide conversation about where our city is going and what it can become over the next 30 years.

We ask you to review the plan and provide your feedback. This can be done by taking the Third Community Survey or by providing comments. Visit the StPete2050 website to continue the conversation.

Additionally, we invite residents to signup to receive updates and to share their ideas for the future of St. Pete here. View the Vision 2020 plan to get an idea of themes for consideration.

FLUM-58:635 64th Street South

Private-initiated application for map amendment to the City’s Official Zoning Map (from Neighborhood Suburban Single-Family-1 “NS-1” to Neighborhood Suburban Multi-Family-1 “NSM-1”) and Future Land Use Map (from Institutional “I” to Residential Urban “RU” approx. 0.21 acres; from Institutional “I” to Residential Medium “RM” approx.. 4.33 acres; and from Residential Urban “RU” to Residential Medium “RM” approx. 0.04 acres). The applicant is proposing to develop multi-family units.

On February 11, 2020, the CPPC conducted a public hearing for this request and voted 1-to-5 thereby recommending DENIAL. On February 21, 2020, Grace Connection of Tampa Bay Inc., Applicant, filed an appeal of the CPPC decision. On August 13, 2020, the City Council conducted a public hearing and voted unanimously to uphold the appeal, thereby overturning the CPPC’s recommendation and approving the requested map amendments to the City’s Official Zoning Map and Future Land Use Map. On October 5, 2020, the Planners’ Advisory Committee (“PAC”) voted unanimously to recommend approval of the Countywide Plan Map amendment to the Forward Pinellas Board.

On September 14, 2020, PGSP Neighbors United, Inc. filed a Petition for Administrative Hearing with the State of Florida Division of Administrative Hearings (“DOAH”) thereby challenging the Ordinance. In response, City staff requested the Forward Pinellas Board reschedule the public hearing until after resolution of the DOAH challenge. On November 17 and 18, 2020, City Staff and legal representation for the petitioners appeared in Tallahassee for a disputed-fact evidentiary hearing. On March 3, 2021, the Administrative Law Judge recommended that the Department of Economic Opportunity (“DEO”) enter a final order determining the subject ordinance to be in compliance, which DEO has since completed.

Floodplain Management Ordinance Update

The City has initiated text amendments to the City of St. Petersburg’s Land Development Regulations (“LDRs”) Chapter 16 related to the Floodplain Management Ordinance (FPM), to update and comply with the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), to incorporate policy driven inspection and plan review requirements, and to promote consistency.

The ordinance that will be presented to City Council will also include a companion amendment to Chapter 8, (Building Code), adopting local technical amendments, to comply with the NFIP’s Community Rating System (CRS) Section 211 new requirements for reducing flood insurance premiums. All structures within a community will be required to comply with the freeboard elevation requirements including mobile homes. The City’s currently rated as a Class 5 community, with a 25% discount to all flood insurance premiums within the Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA). Failure to adopt the new requirement will result in a reclassification from the current Class 5 back to a Class 9, and the current 25% discount will be eliminated.

Public Meeting Schedule
  • June 10, 2021 – City Council, 1st Reading (Tentative)
  • July 15, 2021 – City Council, 2nd Reading and Public Hearing (Tentative)
