E-mail sent to all Largo City Commissioners
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for hearing the concerns of our neighborhood representatives June 16th, at the City Commission meeting regarding the proposed West Bay Dr. Community Redevelopment Expansion, and for voting "no" to including our neighborhood and East Bay Dr. into the redevelopment area, also voting to remove our neighborhood from the boundaries of such.
I must say, I am confused and concerned with the actions of the community development department:
After careful consideration, we have come to understand that the Planning Dept. and the Planning Board may often work against each other. Unfortunately, many members of the community may not understand those actions. In this instance, while the audience at the June Planning Board meeting heard the board vote "no" recommendation to the city, the Planning Department was none the less, strongly encouraging voting "yes". It is situations such as this that confuse, confound, and concern citizens.
Once again, thank you for voting "no" to the redevelopment expansion.
