FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

PUBLIC INPUT INVITED ON IMPROVEMENTS TO ST. PETERSBURG MARINA

ST. PETERSBURG, FL (November 28, 2016) - Citizens are invited to share ideas and suggestions regarding the future of the St. Petersburg Municipal Marina Master Plan, including replacement of the Central and South Yacht Basin Docks, during an open house/community meeting, on Tuesday, December 6, from 5 to 8 p.m. The meeting will be held at the Sunshine Center, 330 5th St. N.

Citizens will have an opportunity to learn about current conditions at the Marina, hear an overview of the regional marina market and to offer suggestions and ideas on improvements to boating conditions and efficiency at the Marina, in keeping with the city's Downtown Waterfront Master Plan. Two other community meetings are planned, with dates to be announced later.

City officials are looking to the Marina Master Plan for much-needed updates of the Central and South Yacht Basin docks, which would eliminate higher maintenance costs related to an aging infrastructure and the ability to accommodate changes in popular boat sizes and styles over the last 50 years.

Questions should be directed to Marina Manager Walt Miller at 727-893-7820 or Rick Herrmann, Project Manager at 727-893-7852.
