Council Members: We all need to work hard to keep St. Petersburg special! In part, that means saying no to out of place, out of scale development like that proposed near Mirror Lake at 5th St. & 3rd Ave. N. (Cara FL Properties LLC). It also means being sure that downtown retains affordable housing options. City code requires downtown development to be compatible with its surrounding neighborhood and those code provisions need to be enforced like any other development regulation. It is only by requiring new development to be compatible that you will ensure our downtown continues to be special and a place people want to visit and live in. The area around Mirror Lake is unique, with its many historic buildings from 1920's winter tourist accommodations to the Mirror Lake recreations area with the Shuffleboard Club. Let's preserve the 'Burg! Please say no to the Cara FL Properties LLC development proposal that fails to respect our city's past and its sense of place.
