St. Pete Orders Motel to Close for One Year
The motel has had numerous issues involving drugs and prostitution, St. Petersburg police say.
ST. PETERSBURG – After dealing with multiple issues involving drugs and prostitution at the New Plaza Motel, 400 34th St. N., over the years, the St. Petersburg police legal department successfully presented its case before the city’s nuisance abatement board on Wednesday (June 17), city officials say. The board voted that the property is a recurring nuisance, and ordered the owner to close its doors for one year. The owner had seven days to move residents off the property. The New Plaza has 64 rooms at 30% occupancy, officials say. Vice and narcotics detectives say they documented numerous drug buys during April and May, after the property had already been declared a nuisance and had been ordered to put remedial measures into place.
