Corey Avenue Revitalization is on St. Pete Beach Officials' Minds

City officials hope to have a plan to revitalize the Corey Avenue business district in place by May, the Beach Beacon reports.

Officials in St. Pete Beach are working on a gameplan for revitalizing the Corey Avenue business district and hope to have their plan in place by May, the Beach Beacon reports.

City officials attended the Florida Redevelopment Association’s annual conference in the fall and are working with Tampa Bay Regional Planning Council and other groups to outline future improvements for the shopping area and historic site.

According to the Beacon:

(Community Development Director George) Kinney hopes to have a TBRPC retail consultant make a presentation in ensuing weeks on how to improve the Corey Avenue area and Eighth Avenue in Pass-A-Grille.

Kinney said the city will meet with Pinellas County officials to establish a Community Redevelopment Agency that would be empowered to acquire and develop property, rehabilitate buildings and build streets, parks and other public improvements, the Beacon reports.

I say close Corey Ave to traffic between Blind Pass and Boca Ciega. Create a Plaza with Palm trees, park benches and a concert stage. Allow business to have seating outside for the cafe restaurants. At each corner create landscaping entrance , semi-tropical setting through the whole block, making it interesting, relaxing so people would just want to come there just to enjoy.
