NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING MAY 6, 2021 at 6:00PM in the Commission Chamber at Largo City Hall, 201 Highland Ave, Largo FL to consider the following: Subject Property Address: 1401 LAKE AVE SE PROPERTY OWNER IS REQUESTING TO ESTABLISH A TRUCK DRIVING SCHOOL IN AN EXISTING INDUSTRIAL OFFICE SPACE WITH HEAVY TRUCK TRAFFIC.

       ****DISAPPROVE THIS CLASS 2 (CONDITIONAL) USE REQUEST****

                      DUE TO ADVERSE RESIDENTIAL COMMUNITY IMPACT:  

1. INCREASED AIR POLLUTION FROM ONSITE TRAINING - Diesel exhaust is a major component of particulate matter air pollution, which has been linked to asthma, lung diseases, and heart disease. Researchers have also studied the role of diesel exhaust in causing an increased risk of death from heart attacks and stroke, premature birth, and adverse pregnancy outcomes. Additionally, its toxic gases and vapors are linked to cancer and can affect cognition and learning.

2. DANGER SHARING LAKE AVE WITH UNTRAINED TRACTOR-TRAILER DRIVERS! - High traffic on narrow, two-lane and dead-end Lake Avenue makes it an already dangerous road.  Adding untrained and newly trained tractor-trailer drivers will make Lake Avenue traffic more dangerous and deadly.
