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.
Coastal High Hazard Area (CHHA)
The CHHA map was updated by the State in 2016, resulting in a major expansion of the overall boundary. The new boundary encompasses approximately 41% of the City, or 25 square miles, including areas identified as important for economic development. To address the expanded boundary, the City is proposing to increase resiliency and reduce flood risk within the CHHA by establishing new and higher design standards in the Land Development Regulations (LDRs) for multifamily residential development. The goal is for new construction to be more resilient to storm surge, provide for mitigation for service and infrastructure needs during and immediately following a major storm event, and enable safe re-occupation as quickly as possible following an evacuation. The proposed LDR and Comprehensive Plan changes will provide more flexibility for redevelopment within the CHHA and may allow increases in density and intensity of development.
In support of this effort, the City was awarded a grant from the Urban Land Institute (ULI) for technical assistance in developing innovative zoning and development standards to ensure that coastal developments are more resilient to various coastal hazards. The ULI Technical Advisory Committee's final technical memo is available below. Staff presented a progress update to City Council at their July 25th Committee of the Whole meeting, where Council requested staff to return to the October 24th Committee of the Whole with another progress update prior to scheduling public hearings. A stakeholder meeting took place at the Main Public Library on October 15th. Public input and comments from that meeting along with updates to the proposed text amendments were presented to City Council at their October 24th Committee of the Whole. Council directed staff to proceed with scheduling public hearings to implement the proposed changes.
