Clearwater Buys Clearwater Christian College Property
The city plans to preserve the land.
CLEARWATER – The city of Clearwater recently purchased the property formerly belonging to Clearwater Christian College.
The purchase includes all college-owned property northeast of the intersection of Gulf-to-Bay and Bayshore boulevards, with exception of the college campus, which will remain under college ownership. The city’s goal is to preserve the land for environmental posterity. The acquired property includes approximately six acres of uplands along the east side of Bayshore Boulevard and 80 acres of wetlands located between Bayshore Boulevard and the college-campus island.
The property will be managed by the engineering department. The city plans to develop a master plan for the property in order to identify environmental restoration and water quality improvement projects.
“This purchase emphasizes the city’s commitment to Clearwater’s environmental future,” Mayor George Cretekos said. “Residents can now look forward to being able to enjoy this land as a natural preserve with improved bay water quality for years to come.”
Residents with questions can call the city of Clearwater’s Engineering department at (727) 562-4750.
