Clearwater Votes: ‘Imagine Clearwater’ on the Ballot
Voters in Clearwater go to the polls on Nov. 7 to vote on a proposal to revamp the city’s waterfront. A public forum tonight (Oct. 11) gives voters a chance to learn about the proposal.
CLEARWATER – Voters in Clearwater will go to the polls next month to cast ballots on two proposals:
The first is whether to renew the Penny for Pinellas for another 10 years. The second is to amend the city of Clearwater charter to allow certain changes to the city-owned parcels along the downtown waterfront and in Coachman Park. The proposal is known as the “Imagine Clearwater” plan.
A “yes” vote will give the city the authority to implement certain portions of the Imagine Clearwater plan and to construct and add these features to city-owned parcels along the downtown waterfront: playgrounds, water features, artwork, a boathouse, Marina office, restrooms, surface parking, roadways, plazas, sidewalks, trails, elevated walkways, boardwalks, benches, picnic
tables, water fountains, litter receptacles and similar amenities.
A “no” vote means that the city will not be given the authority to implement certain portions of the Imagine Clearwater plan and add the listed improvements and amenities to the city-owned downtown waterfront property.
The city has scheduled its final public information session on the proposal for 7 p.m. today (Oct. 11) at the East Library, 2251 Drew St.
The goal of the forum is to provide information about the plan and the referendum. A PowerPoint presentation will go into detail about the proposal and the referendum with a question and answer session afterward.
The election is Nov. 7.
