How Can you Help?
Wheelock may be strong but there is a lot that must happen for this deal to take place!
First, the land is currently zoned for recreational /open space. That means according to Pinellas County’s Comprehensive Plan, “The purpose of this category is to depict those areas of the county that are now used, or appropriate to be used for open space and or recreational purposes: and to recognize the significance of providing open space and recreational areas as part of the overall land use plan.” Primary Uses include: Public/Private open space, public/private park, public recreational facility, public beach/water access, golf course/clubhouse.
The property would have to be rezoned and that takes public support and County Commissioner votes.
If you do not want to see developers move in .... then it is imperative that you speak out. All of these steps can be found on this page.
