Consultant to Present Recommendations about Clearwater’s North Marina Area
This will be the final public meeting on the recommendations for the North Marina Area Master Plan.
CLEARWATER – Recommended design and implementation strategies for the North Marina Area Master Plan will be presented to the community at a meeting set for 5:30 p.m. Thursday (Dec. 10) at the Clearwater Main Library, 100 N Osceola Ave.
This is the final public meeting on the North Marina Area Master Plan. The city of Clearwater and Stantec, a consulting firm hired by the city, have held three previous public meetings. Stantec gathered comments and suggestions from the public at the meetings, met with city staff and held online discussions with participants to help determine its final design and implementation strategies.
“It has been very rewarding to be able to work with such an engaged and creative community such as the good folks from the North Marina Area,” said Michael Delk, the city’s director of Planning and Development. “As we start to wrap up this effort, we once again want to discuss some final thoughts on the future of the North Marina Area. We will use this input to refocus our plans, projects and policies in support of a new vision for future development of this very important area of our city.”
The North Marina Area Master Plan study area covers 64 acres and is bordered by Clearwater Harbor to the west, Pinellas Trail to the east, Cedar Street to the north and Eldridge Street to the south. The study area is just north of downtown Clearwater and includes the Seminole Boat Launch, the Francis Wilson Playhouse and North Ward Elementary School.
The North Marina Area Master Plan study area was recommended for redevelopment under last year’s Urban Land Institute study. The Urban Land Institute, a Washington, D.C. nonprofit, brought a panel of experts who spent five days in downtown Clearwater, meeting with nearly 100 stakeholders and producing dozens of suggestions to help implement a plan to redevelop Clearwater’s downtown.
