Yesterday, St. Pete’s City Council voted against moving forward with a proposed agreement that would have granted Safe Harbor Development operations of the Municipal Marina for 25 years and $30 million in upgrades and repairs.
This plan was a departure from the original proposed 5-year agreement the St. Petersburg Chamber of Commerce did support.
After the proposal failed to move to a vote, Council voted to bring the issue to the Public Services and Infrastructure Committee in September. The Chamber’s Downtown Waterfront Task Force will be meeting to discuss the next steps to ensure our Marina is brought up to the standard our community deserves.
