LARGO -- The Largo City Commission Tuesday night approved changes to the Clearwater-Largo Road Redevelopmant Plan after hearing an explanation of changes by Carol Stricklin, assistant community development director.
The commission approved a redevelopment plan in March but that failed to meet county requirements.
Approval Tuesday night now sends the plan on a long process before it can become effective, if it does in the final analysis, in October.
The commission was sitting as the Community Redevelopment Agency when it heard Stricklin's long and detailed outline of the amended plan.
Changes in the plan address concerns raised by the County Commission and Pinellas County staff.
A key issue in the plan is the displacement of mobile home residents.
The plan faces a second reading by the Largo commission on August 2 following which it will go before the County Commission where it can be approved or denied.
If it is approved the Pinellas Planning Council then passes judgment on it. If approved, it will be before the County Commission sitting as Countywide Planning Authority in October.
Failure to get approval before the County Commission August 16 or the PPC September 21 would presumably send the plan back to the Largo staff for further changes.
