Current St. Petersburg Preservation position statements:
Mayor Kriseman and Council Members: I love the ‘Burg because it is special but the special feel that attracts so many of us to St. Petersburg can easily be lost. Part of the city’s special feel is “First Block” (also known as Detroit or Jannus Block). I support recognizing the block's history and urge you to do so by designating the block and/or its buildings as landmarks. Landmark designation would help keep the block special by discouraging unnecessary demolition and inappropriate redevelopment. The block is part of the heart and soul of our city! There are many examples of successful reuse of historic buildings in the 'Burg and this block should be a part of that list. Reusing history helps to keep St. Pete special while contributing to our community’s economic success!
