Pinellas County is having a Zoning Meeting Thursday, July 12th at 9 am (In the Assembly Room, 315 Court Street, 5th floor, Clearwater) to determine if the parcel of land between the Sutherland Bayou Boat Ramp and Missouri Avenue can change its current zoning from Residential, which allows up to 25 homes on the parcel, to Light Manufacturing and Industrial, which would allow for the building of a large Storage Facility.

Bayou Development Inc. wants to build a 3-story 40-foot high 121,920 S.F. Self Storage facility there. If you’re not familiar with the parcel, it is the undeveloped land on the West side of Alt. 19, South of where the boats are stored.

This gigantic building would forever change the small town community feel of Old Palm Harbor, Crystal Beach and Ozona.  There are no other 3-story Industrial Building along the PinellasTrail from Dunedin to Tarpon Springs. If this is passed and built, it will set a precedent for all types of industrial properties to be built on residential properties in the future.

Only residents within 600 feet received a mailed, written notification of these proposed changes. (The County did post it in the paper and does have small signage on the parcel.)  We believe that the larger community should be made aware of this pending change since it could have a detrimental impact on our community.  We would like to see the County purchase the property and turn it into a passive park or preserve.

The community is encouraged to attend the meeting.  The community is encouraged to email letters and comments to ZONING@PINELLASCOUNTY.ORG or fax letters to 727-453-3256 by July 9, 2018.  You must Reference: Case No Z/LU-12-06-18   Contact the Planning office at 727-464-3583, if you have any questions.

As members of this community, we would like to request everyone to review the photo and if you are opposed to this, either please attend the meeting, email or fax a response by July 9th, 2018.  #nostoragebuilding
